    Steve…..I grew up in SE Minnesota….the” land of sink holes.”  If we ever saw a hole like that….and it was getting bigger day by day…we RAN.  By morning it may be the size of the Grand Canyon.  LOL  Charlene

    Rugmaker….good to see you posting, but sorry to hear that you are experiencing the same heat and drought that I am here.  Watering is keeping some of my plants going, but nothing is really flourishing this year.  I guess I have just developed the attitude that there is always next year….Charlene

    Gayle….lol….they are all the same plant that Molly listed….just different companies.  I doubt there will ever be one with my name, but many of my friends call their flowers by name because i shared with them and they can’t remember the real name. 

    Molly….are you planning on purchasing one of those?  Proven winners has great plants!  Charlene

    Glad they did so well in the tourney and hope the family has a good time in Louisville.

    Sorry that you have sinus infection, Alma.  I hope you get a puter and internet up and running before winter….we miss you here….and I am sure BYC really misses you as well.  Charlene

    [quote user="Roboutside"]Hi Charlene!  That is actually grass clippings that are covering the garden.[/quote]

     

    Hi Rob….guess you missed the post when I shared with all that I am now blind….lol.  Now looking back at your pic I can see that.  I just am so use to looking at our lawn which looks exactly like your dead grass clippings.  Don’t give up on the lisianthus seeds just yet….there is always next year.

    Hazlnutz….welcome to the board.  Many of us here start lisianthus from seed because they are difficult to find in any nurseries or greenhouuses.  They are slow growers, but well worth the wait.  Charlene

    I do the same as Molly….add new dirt ontop of the old.  It is too expensive to just toss….that’s for sure!  Charlene

    I think your calendulas will be blooming in plenty of time for you to enjoy them.  I recall starting tham indoors in late winter and having blooms in the GH before I could plant them outside.  They will give nice fall color for you.  Charlene

    Good morning everyone.  It is a comfortable 60º and sunny this morning….we didn’t get any rain, but I hope that Kathy did.

    I have to go in and work for a few hours this morning.  I have a customer coming from Minneapolis, MN (2 hours north of her) to pick up 2 chairs….and a customer coming from Manchester, Ia (2 hrs south of here) to drop off a couch.  Saturday is the only day they can make it, so it doesn’t kill me to go in for awhile.

    I’ve already got the soaker hoses going and need to feed DS’s cat on my walk to work, so I probably shouldn’t linger here too long.

    Have a great Saturday everyone….and don’t forget to have some fun!

    Charlene

    There are many lovely flowers here this morning!  Rob….your grass looks like ours….saves on the mowing, doesn’t it?

    Here are some “mini Lizianthus” from Del.  I love them!  Charlene

    Steve….that is not from my yard….lol.  I borrowed that pic from the internet to show Giddeyup what we refer to as ditch lilies.  Charlene
