    I have to admit….since we have had almost no moisture this year…..I have yet to see a mosquito!  That is the one positive thing about this summer.  Charlene

    [quote user="jaowl_IA_zn5"]I notied that there was a big ‘gouge’ out of the dirt in the planter.[/quote]

     

    I am guessing that you will have a walnut tree growing in your pot next Spring.  That is usually what those holes mean in mine.  Charlene

    We aren’t as dry as Kathy only because we got 2 surprise rains in the past month.  We are still WAY down from what we are supposed to have for the year (I think I heard 9.5 inches)

    Our weather man said that isaac was bringing us much warmer than normal temps….never mentioned any rain.  Of course, this man that I listen to is brain dead, so let’s hope he is wrong. He is the one that tells us that it is raining but it isn’t hitting the ground??????  LOL  Charlene

    Very lovely photos this morning.

    Steve….love those nasturtiums, as you already know.

    Kathy…..I have also seen that BF here, but no luck with a good photo….but I will keep trying.

    Mmarnee….what beautiful dahlias.  It sounds like the dahlia festival was a good time for you!

    Del….same way with me and the hummers!

    Yesterday I had camera in hand at my BF bush because I saw so many different varieties of butterflies on it.  I looked at the neighboring flower bed and noticed a hummer enjoying a Red Zinnia…..it was a long way, but I zoomed in and managed to get a quick shot before he flew off into the wild blue yonder….lol

    Good morning Molly & Del and all to follow.  It is 60º this morning, but they are forecasting 90s for highs for the entire week…..weekend is a bit cooler (mid 80s)  No rain clouds showing on any of those days, so I am sure I will be doing lots of watering again….ugghh

    We had a great time yesterday.  I didn’t get any pics inside the cave, but got a pic of all the kids and GKs outside afterward.  I will share that once I get it on my camera.  After we got home, I managed to get another pickup load of weeds, dead flower heads, brush, etc. (I also filled it up on Saturday)  My gardens look a little better, but still more work to do……maybe next weekend.

    Have a great Monday everyone….just another day in my shop for me.  Charlene

    Sounds like you got alot done, but I guess I agree with Del…especially about the castor beams, KMOTGG, and other annuals.  If you let frost take them, they are easier to cut off and at least you could have enjoyed them until then…..that is more than likely a month to 6 weeks away.  Charlene

    Leroy….never heard it called Lablab vine.  I also have the white Hyacinth bean….do you want some seed?

    Leslie…..both geraniums and Plectranthus are hardy plants, but they may do better if you put them somewhere to dry out good.  They both flourish better with drought rather than wet conditions…..they need to dry out between waterings.  Charlene

    My understanding is that it will look no different than any other full moon…..just called that because there are 2 full moons in the same month…..am I right on that?  Charlene

    Del….that is such a pretty plant.  I recall having that as a SOD a couple of years ago when I was showcasing different vines.  I may have even tried seeds….not sure….if I did they never grew!  Charlene

    Del, I am so happy for you.  I know how good that makes a person feel.  You put so much work into your yard, it is rewarding when others appreciate it!  I hope to see your backyard in person someday!

    We have had many people stop by….just to ask questions….take pics….or whatever.  I always offer them a tour.

    I used to apologize that some plants weren’t blooming and that there were weeds and unwanted trees in my beds…..but then I realized that many of them do not know the difference…..so I just keep my mouth shut now….lol.  Charlene

    Mine is also blooming now, Kathy, but I haven’t gotten any pics yet……looks just like yours!  LOL  Thanks for the seeds, Jan.

    Wanda, I’m guessing that I will have some seed of these to share with you.  Charlene

    I have also noticed that she hasn’t been posting lately….and Donna hasn’t either.  I guess i am like wanda though…..I am not on here as much as winter months, so they could be posting and I’ve missed it.  Charlene
