    Steve….I actually like the 2 colors on one plant.  Very pretty rose, Gayle.  All of the fall colors here today are so pretty.  Our trees are bare now.  Love the ice plant.

    I left this container outside to die.  It is in a protected place so it hasn’t froze yet.  Now it decides to get pretty just to make me feel guilty and have 2nd thoughts….lol.

    Stella….I’ve shared this tip before…a tip I actually learned on this board:

    Plant bulbs around hostas.  They come up long before the hostas and when they are done blooming, the hosta grows and covers the dying folage.

    Thanks, Stella and Molly!  I now think this is a “must have” plant.  I would plant it beside my deep purple butterfly bush from Del.  The 2 would compliment eachother, and it is close to my picnic table, so I could sit there and enjoy the butterflies and inhale the fragrance.  Charlene

    [quote user="skippydel13zone6KY"]Charlene how DO you get your diascia to be so full and nice? [/quote]

    Del….I think they are a plant that prefers cooler temps.  Mine did not perform as well this summer as they usually do because it was too darn hot for them.  They bloomed in the Spring and when they started to look sick from the heat, I gave them a good haircut and they came back and are enjoying the cooler temps now..  Charlene

    Gary….that picture is precious!

    Steve…..I agree with Del….I have never seen a skunk with such a broad white strip.  I thought it was maybe a southern breed of skunk.  I cannot believe that you FED them!  LOL  Charlene

    Kathy….your supper sounded so good!  We also had pork….pork steak.  I hope you have a good time with your friends tonight.

    Gayle….your new job offer sounds great.  I don’t blame you for considering it.  He did give you a nice compliment.

    It was too cold and damp to do anything outside when I got home from work.  It wasn’t raining, just had that damp feeling with a cool wind.  I opted to water a few houseplants that were dying of thirst.  DS & DGS came over for a shirt visit.  DH is watching his Wed night TV shows.  I will join him at 8pm to watch Modern Family.  I like that show.

    Have a good evening everyone.  Charlene

    Good morning everyone.  It is 50º with a chilly wind, but we have promises of a sunny, 70º day later.

    Molly…we jump up and down for joy if we get 1/2 inch of rain.  We actually have rain in the forecast for later this week.  Glad you didn’t have a bad storm.

    Wendy…yesterday was Monday….for me anything that is going to go wrong, goes wrong on Monday.  I hope today is a better day for you.

    Del….glad your crawlspace project is completed…..I hope it works out well for you to winter over plants.

    Just work in my shop as usual for me today.

    Have a great day everyone!  Charlene

    Gayle….I sent you gomphrena seed this Spring.  Did you plant any of them because the leaves remind me of my gomphrena.  Charlene

    Tina…we have missed you here!  Your name has been brought up several times inquiring if anyone had heard from you.  We all understand that sometimes we have real life situations that have to be dealt with.  Prayers that you Aunt has a speedy and successful recovery…..good luck to you DD at school…and take care of yourself.  Stop in when you can.  We also all swear that we aren’t starting as many seeds this winter, but time will tell…..lol.  Charlene

    It is after 7 here and still dark, so I can’t tell you if our sky is red or not.

    I knew that was an old saying, as my Mom always had a slightly different saying, but same meaning.  I didn’t know it was in the bible however.  Charlene

    Wow, Charlene…..it appears that you can soon sit back and just wait for Spring!  You have put alot of hard work into that bed, but I am sure you will not regret it once those bulbs turn into pretty flowers.  The dogwoods are a nice addition.  I look forward to pics next year.  Charlene

    Good morning everyone.  It is 40º here and promises of upper 50s later.  Tomorrow is supposed to sunny and 70….that will be nice.  We ended up getting a total of 3/4 of an inch of rain over the weekend.  South of us got some heavy showers, however.

    Monday, Monday….(singing that Mamas & Papas song to myself)  Another week in my shop.

    Hey….I was thinking last night….Eva hasn’t been here for a few days, has she?  I hope all is well with her and that her BP hasn’t gotten her down again.  Good to see a post from Tina when I came today.

    Have a great day everyone.  Charlene
