    I will also pass because I already have a few volunteers in my yard.  If you pick those pods early enough, they can be dried and used in dried arrangements.(I’ve even spray painted them before)   Charlene

    Bette….good to hear that you got your mattress and were able to have a good nights’ sleep.  I hope Trouble did as well.

    I also had a good sleep…..I actually slept 8 hrs!  I don’t remember sleeping for 8 hrs since the last time I was sick….and that was 2002 when I had strep throat.  I guess it was long overdue….lol.  Charlene

    MD….could you post a pic?  Last evening I noticed that I have several flowers that the leaves grow in groups of 3s.  One vining one is the hyacinth bean….and they also turn red in the fall.  Charlene

    Very pretty everyone.  The bugs are starting to eat my dahlias, but they are pretty anyway.  I am now trying to cut them and bring them in before the bugs find them.  Charlene

    Good morning everyone.  It is a crisp 46º here this morning which makes me think of what is right around the corner.

    Molly….I hope to get some weeding done this weekend.  I also have grass in several of the beds.  It is for sure too dry to pull, so I will also have to dig.

    Del….I’ve never had a shingles shot, but it sounds like the side effects are not fun…..much more fun than shingles however.

    Eva…..let’s hope that the surgery did its job.  That is one long test!  Good luck!

    Leslie….doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun?  I am glad you found time to enjoy with your GKs this week.

    My helper is not coming today.  His big sister doesn’t have volleyball pratice, so she will watch him.  Hopefully I will get more done than I have the rest of the week.  He is a good little boy, but likes me to play with him.  He isn’t good at entertaining himself at all because he has never had to.

    Have a great Friday everyone.  Charlene

    There sure are lots of pretty flowers on this thread.  We have a south deck that is full sun, so I have a few plants there.  I have more on our front porch.  I’ll look up some pics and post this weekend.  Charlene

    Great looking begonias and I also love the ladder look.  I have an old ladder that I had plants on a few years ago.  Because of all the wind in our area, I had to use bungi cords to keep them on the steps…lol.  Charlene

    Good morning everyone.  It is 60º and a chilly wind out there.  We had 80% chances of rain in the night, but we did not get a drop.  There are slight chances yet this morning so I am still keeping my fingers crossed.

    Molly….glad to see you here today.  I figured you were having puter problems yesterday when we didn’t see you.

    Del…I hope your DGodS can cope with all that he is going through right now.  How kind of you to help him out.

    Wendy….that was nice of them to allow for you to have a weeks vacation between jobs.  Once you start a new job it is usually a year before you can take a vacation.  I hope you enjoy your time off and that you like your new job.

    Leslie…it does sound like you are having a busy week.  Those girls will be begging to come and stay with you all of the time now.

    Just another day in my shop….and I will still have my little helper.  He seems to think he should always do this and not go to daycare anymore.  I’m not agreeing with him on that statement….lol.

    Tonight we will take an ice cream cake and birthday present to DGS # 3 who turns 1 yrs old today.

    Have a great day everyone.  Charlene

    Happy Birthday to you dear Linda! [^] [G]  I hope you have a great day.  Our #3 DGS also has a birthday today.  He is 12.  I made him an ice cream cake, so when I eat a piece with him…..I will think of you!  Charlene

    Those are lovely, Sandy.  You did good to get them to grow on your 1st try….and you do know that you can cut them back and keep them over inside….right?  Charlene

    You do have a bumper crop, Leroy.  You got rain in the Spring that we did not get.  There are very few if any apples here this year.  Charlene
