    I think it looks like a bougainvillea. I loved seeing those when visiting Mexico.  Charlene

    Ili…I am sorry that I forgot to comment on your beautiful moon pictures…also admire that pretty bottle  brush.

    Vickie….I think it was Park seed….but not quite sure.  I had the seeds for a few years before remembering to plant them.

    Janet….I do love that rose!  Charlene

    She does love to sing…and yes, her name is Makayla and she has lots of songs on Youtube.  Charlene

    I have also seen many cats this year….never in the chrysalis mode though.  Something is working…and the cats are on the Asclepias  and milkweed, even though I have never seen a monarch close to that flower….oh the wonders of nature!

    Thanks for the kind words and compliments everyone….it was fun watching them and running around like a chicken with my head cut off trying to get pics.  Charlene

    Karen….I have often done straight stitching with the zig zag presser foot, but you cannot zig zag with the straight stitch presser foot unless you want a broken needle.  Glad you found the book and the accessories for the machine.

    Charlie….there are annual asters and there are perennial asters.  The annual asters I usually start some indoors and some are volunteers from last year’s plants reseeding.  The ones I start indoors in March are usually blooming in July.  The volunteers from ast year are blooming now.

    Perennial asters usually bloom now….and they can with stand some very cold temperatures.

    Does that answer your question?  Charlene

    Congrats to you, Kathy!  The raise is great and the employee of the month is a real bonus….do they know that you are the one that tracked up the showroom?  Maybe you should keep that a secret…lol.  Charlene

    Good morning to both of you….I also replied on the other VIP thread.

    Melissa it sounds like you are making progress with your remodeling job.  I know you will be happy when it is done and you can have your kitchen back….new and improved!  Charlene

    Steve…great looking bird food there!

    Sandra….lovely flowers….and I do think yours are BES.  Love the moonflower and zinnia pic, too.

    Gayle…and Melissa….lovely flowers no matter what color their eyes are.

    I am usually not a big lover of Sunflowers because they always topple over and take other plants down with them.  This year we grew the shorter version….

    this is called Teddy Bear Sunflower….I like it.

    My one and only Texas Star Hibiscus bloom this year.

    Good Monday morning to all of you and all who visit later.  I read the other thread and now have read here.  It is 50º and raining here this morning.  I am not sure what it is supposed to do the rest of the day.  It will be dry in my shop.

    Molly….I know that Lair uses Frontline, but not sure if it is the kind you are talking about.  Your chowder sounds wonderful….and tonight’s tails sound even better.  I have a pork roast out to stick in the oven when I am home for lunch.

    Leslie….my hands and knees hurt just thinking about the work you did this weekend.  It does sound like you are making progress.  How is your DGD that was hospitalized doing?

    Sue….I hope you weren’t late for work.  Today is one of those days that I could crawl back into bwed, but I know once I get going all will be fine.

    Melissa….what are your plans for those apples?  I used to make applesauce because our kids loved it.  I also sliced apples….sprinkled sugar on them and froze them that way.  They were always used for apple crisp.

    Have a great day everyone.  Charlene

    Kathy….

    Mahogany Splendor hibiscus is an annual.  Mine also got big and pretty.  I put about 3 cuttings in water and they were rooted in just a few days….I then did 6 more in dirt and they are looking great, too.

    My mascara lettuce did get big and pretty, but did not like the heat of summer….and it really didn’t get that hot here this summer, so next year I will probably plant then on the east side of the house rather than the west and see how they do.  That way they won’t have the hot afternoon sun.

    Yes, the little purple balls are the seed pods on malibar spinach.  Once they look like raisins they are ready to pick….and they are pretty and do get big!  If you have a spot for them, they are great.

    Chicken gizzard is an annual that I got a few years ago….saved it from cuttings.  I grow VERY few perennials from seed.  I have enough perennials….just grow the annuals to fill in between them.

    I do not recall the plant that looks like painters palette…..it must be a coleus?  Just a guess without a picture.  Charlene

    Sue….have you thought about making that area a gnome village?  There are so many cute gnomes out there now.  You can insert them along with some blooming plants which will fit right into your fish pond and hosta theme.  I guess we have time to talk about it….right?  LOL  Charlene

    Molly….I am glad that I am good for something….lol.  The more I think about it, the more I am sure it was Noreen that told us that a few months ago.  I will have DS checking Craigs list for one.  You need a lot bigger one than me, though!  Charlene
