    Steve….those are some healthy looking Stock!  Don’t you love their scent?

    The only rose I can grow is the climbing 7 Sisters from my Mom…and she got it from her Mom….extra special!

    We also had a beautiful day.  We do have rain in our forecast for tomorrow, but not the threatening storms that Kathy has.  We could use a nice shower.

    Larry and I did enjoy visiting my home church today.  The minister that married us was happy to hear that we were still together….we were one of his 1st weddings and he just retired on July 1st…so we are all old….lol.

    Sue…good to see you here and sorry to hear about your Dad.  The confusion goes along with CHF because the extra fluid seems to restrict the lungs and then cuts back on the body’s ability to absorb oxygen.  I have been down that road with both Larry and Lair when they were 1st diagnosed with it.

    I am tired…but glad to visit here before bed.  I know some read a book to relax them for bedtime….my relaxing time is here with friends.  See you all in the morning.  Charlene

    Gayle…I am sorry to hear it was stolen from your yard.  It is one of a kind…so keep your eyes out for it and you have this picture for evidence!  You now need to be a detective.  You know you will find it before they will!  Charlene

    It always blows my mind that you know their names.  Did you buy all of them and keep the tag or did you do a search to find out their names?   Most of our daylilies have been shared by family or friends and no names attached.  They are pretty no matter what their names are.  Charlene

    I guess I missed something….remember, I have my eyes trained to not see weeds….that is one of my best talents.  Looks good, Bette!  Charlene

    How great that your colors are matching up…sometimes I like them to match and other times I love the contrast.  Nice that people are noticing…this is what you were planning for all winter, right?  Charlene

    Marilyn…we don’t mulch anything.  I know we maybe should, but we prefer the “look” of the dirt…even though there are weeds growing in it.  One of the purposes of mulch is to shade the ground to keep it moist and cooler, and the hostas already do that.  Charlene

    Good morning everyone.  It is chilly this morning…the breeze coming in this door makes me happy that I have a sweater on.

    As Larry said…we are going to my home church this morning.  It is the church our family attended growing up and we were married there.  We will go to the morning service and the dinner, but I do not think we are staying for the afternoon program nor the evening Cowboy church.  I imagine I will see lots of people that I haven’t seen in years.

    Molly…glad to hear that your DD & DGD made it home.  I bet they will have lots of stories to tell and pics to share with you.  I bet the dog will be happy to see them.

    Sandy..sorry that you didn’t get to the Falls, but I suppose yesterday was probably one of their busiest days of the year.  I know that is true of Black Hills and a few other tourist places.  Enjoy your day.

    Have a great day everyone.  I’ve got to get cleaned up but 1st I need to run to my shop and water the plants and tomatoes there.  Charlene

    Marilyn…good morning to you as well.  Isn’t it fun to watch fireworks from home?  We watched some that our friends shot off at the north edge of town…not a lot, but enough to make me happy.  They sure had all of the dogs in town barking.  lol  Sorry to hear about your nephew losing a baby…so sad.

    Good evening everyone,  We had a productive day in the yard but late afternoon and evening made my day not so good.  I had to be the messenger of bad news about my friend with cancer to both her parents and her daughter.  It seems that on the phone, she has been telling them that she is doing fine, but they were reading between the lines.  They called me and i could not lie to her Mother and tell her that my friend was okay.  If my daughter were sick, I would want to know the truth.  It does sound like some family members will be here ASAP.  That makes me feel better because I fear that she should not be alone, but she insists that none of us stay with her.  She is a proud woman.

    All of the dogs in town are barking because of firecrackers and some back yard fireworks….I hope they are done soon.

    See you all in the morning.

    Stella…i have a recipe for 1 cup of vinegar in 1 gallon of hot water that kills grass and weeds growing in sidewalk cracks…..are you sure that is the recipe for helping your rhododendrons?

    Sandy…I have no idea why he doesn’t like the blooms, but he thinks the blooms make them look “messy”.  I don’t argue with my Garden Helper….I sure don’t want him to quit…lol.  Charlene

    Lamium is okay for your zone without fears of it getting real invasive.  I know it is a real problem in the much warmer zones.

    Creeping phlox is probably hardy for you, but would need more sun than the shade of the tree would give it.

    The vinca vine that they are talking about is not hardy for here…not sure about your zone, though.

    The storm probably did take out your TV…good luck with the insurance thing, though.  Every time in 35 years that we had a claim, it coincidentally seemed that the cost of what we lost was less than our deductible….insurance is a scam you know.  Charlene
