    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

    Marilyn…lol about your hosta blooming.  Larry didn’t want me to take this pic until he got all of the blooms cut off…he doesn’t like the blooms on them.  Charlene

    I do not remember what zone you are in.  It makes a difference because some of the ground covers that Gayle mentioned are not hardy for my zone.  Charlene

    Tigsy…if you know any gardeners that have it, they probably be happy to share some with you.  It spreads fast, so I am constantly digging some out and sharing or throwing.

    I think everything looks great.  Your containers are really flourishing and the other things are as well (I have my eyes trained to not see weeds…lol)  Weather is not always our plants friend, is it?  That darn wind beats them up bad, but I am sure they will bounce back.  Charlene

    Your container is very festive, Janet…and Kathy yours is beautiful.

    Your request sent me out with camera in hand to take a pic of my red/white/blue annual garden in the front yard.  I then noticed that I had several red and white containers, so I cheatwd and added the little pinwheel for the blue…lol.  It is difficult to fine true blue flowers.

    This is the annual bed out front…..Janet, the calabrachoa in the hanging basket are called bluue, but they look more purple to me.

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    These are the containers where I cheated…lol

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Not a container, but red puff gaillardia, blue and white nigella

    Thank you everyone….not quite as a dramatic change as May/June was, but a little difference.  Melissa hit 2 of the changes with the Trumpet vine and hydrangea by the porch…also the Stella de Oros are blooming now and the addition of another hanging basket.

    Posy…believe me the weeds and grass are there….taking the picture from a distance helps to hide them…lol.

    I think it looks great, Sandy!  What a big difference it makes.  The addition of the shutters will just be the frosting on the cake and make it look even better.  I am sure you are glad that you decided to make this change…looks great!  Charlene

    Good morning everyone.  We also have promises of another beautiful day.  We have no big plans at all today.  There are a couple of parades in the area, but I doubt that we will go.  It is 10 years ago today that my Mom passed, and ever since then I haven’t enjoyed the 4th as much as I used to.

    As Larry said, we had friends drop by for a visit last night and we did enjoy it.  We were both able to sleep in earlier than usual, but that is okay.  I need more coffee before I make any decisions as to what I am going to do today.

    We did a walk about the yard last night and made some plans for bed expansions.  It will be a lot of work, but I think we will enjoy them….and less mowing for Larry!  lol

    Have a happy 4th everyone….for some odd reason, I am craving a donut…lol.  Charlene

    Charlie…that is why I grow containers….just so guys will stop by and make conversation about them…lol.  I hope you take her comment as a compliment to your hard work.  It is one thing when we love and appreciate our flowers, but when others do, it takes it to the next step!  Charlene

    I think both areas look great….no major changes and I think that is typical for the June to July pics.  I know mine haven’t changed a lot…not like the major change form May to June.  Charlene

    Tigsy…glad to hear that things are going well so far.  Ground cover sounds like a great idea!I have some ground cover that would work well in that area.  It is called Lamium.  I have the purple and the white….the foliage is pretty even when it isn’t blooming

    Sorry to hear about the troubles you are having.  I know that what happened is called an act of nature, and insurance doesn’t cover anything, so just come to an agreement with you neighbor and hope that he fixes the cause of the problem before it causes more problems and cost him more money.  It sounds like he wants to keep peace and make you all happy…and at least he says that he omitted a necessary step, so he is at least agreeing that it is his fault.  He sounds like an honest person that is probably kicking himself in the behind right now for not doing it the right way the 1st time.  I hope all is settled soon.  Charlene
