    I have never had squash soup, but I believe that Karen and a couple others have talked about it.  Maybe they will see this and share their recipe with you.  Charlene

    Good morning Leslie.  I guess everyone is sleeping late.  Enjoy the soccer game tonight and hope you get some good pics.

    Karen….I think you can bury the branch this time of year……just make sure you keep it moist until the ground freezes.  Once it freezes, it will go dormant, but I bet you will have a bush to share my late Spring or early summer.  Charlene

    We have 37º this morning and later is to be sunny and upper 50s.

    Today is DH’s birthday.  He has no big plans….just another day.  I know DD & family are stopping by this evening, and I am sure that DS & family will also walk over.  I will put a pork roast in the oven this noon, since that is his favorite meal.

    Work in my shop for me today.

    Have a great day everyone.  Charlene

    Karen….I have a 7 sisters climbing rose.  To start a new bush, I lay a branch on the ground…..still attached to the plant.  I cover several inches of it with dirt, leaving only about 6 to 8 inches sticking out at the end…..I place a rock over the part that I buried.  Within a few weeks it is usually rooted out.  I then cut it from the branch and plant it.  Is that as clear as mud?  Charlene

    I guess this is the chit chat thread, so I will chat as well as send Charlie get well wishes.

    It was a lovely day here….62º and sunny….can’t beat that for this time of the year.I got a lot done in my shop.  After work, I dug the bulbs behind my shop….mostly glads.  There were several dahlias there, but I only dug one of them….I saved seed from the others.

    Charlie….sick enough to miss work this week and next….what you got….Ebola?  I guess we will have to put every one on the board in quarantine in the VSR for 21 days….wouldn’t that be fun?  Seriously….I hope you start feeling better soon.  Have you gone to a DR?  I was wondering why you called Molly a whore, but now I get it….whore-to-culture……lol

    I forget what is on TV tonight.  I know I need to do a bit of house cleaning ….just surface cleaning.  Tomorrow is DH’s birthday and I know that DD & family are coming over after work and usually a few others stop by.

    Have a good evening everyone.  Charlene

    Love the pretty impatiens and gaillardia this morning.  I also enjoyed the Mexico pics.

    My Texas Star only had one bloom on it this summer.  I am keeping it in my GH and hoping for more next summer.

    I also have never grown them from seed.  I tried once, but no luck.  Someone from this board sent me seeds….guess I wasn’t patient enough if it takes that long to germinate.  Charlene

    Good morning Molly and all who visit later. Molly….I am glad the confederate roses rooted for you. Did the ones that survived bloom this year?

      I brought some donuts for all…..enjoy.

    We have 44º and it is supposed to be a beautiful fall day.

    Work for me today. Have a great day everyone. Charlene

    I am in the same boat as Kathy….different zones.  A few years back none of my canna bulbs wintered over, so I haven’t had any for quite some time….maybe 8 years.  After digging bulbs a good share of the day, I think this is my last year of doing that.  I will just have to live without many of those flowers.  Charlene

    Good evening.  We had a rather acceptable day for late October.  DH thought it was too cold and windy to go outdoors, so I was on my own.  I did get all of the glads, calla lilies, dahlias, oxalis, and a few other bulbs dug.  I have them drying in the wagon and will get them into the basement for winter storage next weekend.

    I also got my bedding washed and did the dry cleaner bag thing for 3 of my nicer sweaters.  I  got the kitchen floor washed and washed a few of my throw rugs…..it was a good day for drying them outdoors.

    This afternoon I cut back and threw more plants in the annual and perennial beds….which means taking time out to save seeds.  I cleaned the basement where I am putting amaryllis bulbs and tray carriers.  I also did a few more cuttings.  I did cut 2 of my tropical hibiscus back and threw every thing I cut off…..go figure…..lol.

    Karen, doesn’t that make you mad when your Mom doesn’t even apologize nor say anything about your last confrontation?  It makes me think that she knows she was wrong and doesn’t want to admit it.  I do hope you don’t get DH’s bug from the dirty plate.  We also have a system for the dishwasher.  We only run ours every 5th day…..I start it before I go to bed at night and he has it emptied and put away before I get out of bed in the morning….works for us.  I know I would NEVER be able to read that book no matter what family ties it had.  I am not a reader…..especially of old English.

    Kathy…..I also had a confrontation with a neighbor today.  In the past week, I have found at least 8 deep holes dug in some of my gardens.  We have been contemplating what kind of animal would do that.  Today when i was in my garden the neighbor’s new puppy came over and immediately started digging a hole….I then knew where the holes were coming from (they’ve had this puppy about 1 week)  I caught her when she came home from work and informed her that we have a “leash law” in town.  IF she wants her puppy to grow up to be a dog, she’d better abide by it.  I would never kill a dog, but I would snatch it up and take it to the neighboring town shelter.  They now have a male dog 2 yrs old and a female 8 months old….I foresee puppies in the near future.

    I need to take a bath and do some book work tonight….not fun, but needs to be done.

    Have a great evening everyone.  Charlene

    Hello, Eva….glad Matilda had a good birthday party….I hope you can get your Bp back down.

    I just made a pot of turkey/vegetables/rice soup.  It is my lunch for the week, but we will each have a bowl tonight with wheat buns……they are in the oven right now (Rhodes frozen dough).  Charlene
