    That is just lovely, Tina.  You certainly picked the perfect spot for this pic progress. I don’t see any weeds…..I have my eyes trained to not see them….lol.   Charlene

    I have never had any luck with them wintering over here in zone 4.  If I get anymore, I will try the GH thing like Molly does….like I need more plants in my GH…lol

    DGS wanted to close the storage garage door so his Dad didn’t know he had been in there (not supposed to be).  he piled up 2 empty boxes so he could reach the button to close the door and the boxes collapsed when he stood on them.  He fell to the ground (concrete and gravel).

    Right now he has what they call a soft cast and they didn’t put it in a sling because he is supposed to hold it up like he was in the picture as often as possible.  Charlene

    Yes, Kathy…that 3 inches of rain we got a while back certainly made a difference.  Right now we need more because the heat and wind is really drying things out bad.

    Molly…I will send you sunshine in exchange for some rain….deal?  lol  Charlene

    I looked around at the prices of plants yesterday and it made me realize how much money I save by starting things from seed.  Lobelias were $2.79 each and I grew about 50 of them from 4 yr old seed.  The geraniums the size of mine were from $16 to $30.  I only spent about $25 for seed this year, so I am not going to feel guilty for buying a few plants.  Charlene

    Yes, we have been having summer weather rather than Spring weather, like Melissa…more consistent with July weather.  I hope we don’t have May temps in July!

    I fear that the warmer weather is going to stunt my lupines, though….they don’t like heat so much.

    Good morning everyone.  It is cloudy here this morning, but I am not complaining since we have had more than our fair share of sunshine the past couple of weeks.  There is rain in the forecast for later today and chances of showers every day this week.  We can use some moisture.

    We did not have internet last night and this morning.  When I woke up, Larry was on the phone with our IP and they seem to have gotten it back.

    It sounds like we are all in gardening mode….this is what we’ve waited months for.  Melissa, making a new flower bed sounds like a lot of work, but so rewarding in the end.

    DGS had to come over and show us his temporary cast yesterday.  The Dr told him to try to keep it elevated and he seems to be doing just that…lol  He was outdoors most of the day, so I don’t think this broken arm is going to slow him down too much….kids heal fast.

    Have a great day everyone.  Charlene

    I’ve been to the orange store before….and I probably bought some plants there.

    If this is confession time….Larry and I went to the Menonite GH yesterday and we accidentally bought a few things.  I like to get some new blood in my plant stock every once in a while…..lol

    Good evening Donna and everyone else.  Donna I feel your pain about not starting any seeds this year, but there is always next year.  Right now I think your plate is full.  We had a lovely day and took advantage of it….does this tell you anything about our exceptionally early spring?

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

    That is just unheard of here.

    I got so much fresh air today…and so much planting, etc done….I am going to be heading to bed shortly.  It sounds like you all had a great day….this is what we’ve been waiting for, isn’t it…..well, not the earthquake….hope no damage was done.  Charlene

    Good morning everyone.  Well, we have had company already this morning…just our son.  Larry learned on facebook that DGS#4 broke his arm last night, so I shot DS a text wanting details.  It was easier for him to walk over and tell us about it than to try and write it all in a text.  The poor kid….he is right handed and of course it is his right arm that he broke.  I will go over and visit him some time today.  He just has a soft cast for now and will get the hard cast on after the swelling goes down.

    We are supposed to have another beautiful day….this weather we’ve been having is just unbelievable…..hard to imagine that 2 yrs ago today we got 13 inches of snow….lol.

    I have a customer coming this morning and other than that, I will be working outside all day.  We are supposed to get rain tomorrow, so getting some things in the ground will be a good thing.

    I have to go and chase the ducks out of our yard…..grrrrrr….have a great day everyone.  Charlene

    Good evening everyone…this is kind of a happy/sad news thread, isn’t it?

    So glad to all of you having great weather…especially to Wendy enjoying her time off from work.

    Sandy…hugs to you…I know what you did today was difficult, but I hope the gardening after returning home was a stress relief for you.

    Karen…congrats to all!  I suspicioned that this was the news you were hinting at the other day…but so happy to hear she said “yes”.  I know you like her and think she is good for your DS….how wonderful.

    Julie…when is your DBIL’s funeral?

    Molly…did you get that box yet?  I mailed it Monday….I thought it would be there by now.

    We didn’t get home until almost 8pm tonight and then I had so many people to call and text about BFF’s procedure today.  I am beat and heading to bed soon.  She has someone staying with her and she has us on speed dial if needed.  Charlene

    He looks like the perfect dog for your DGS!

    On the subject of dogs…has your friends puppy been born yet?  I must have missed it.  Charlene
