    Abey….I can’t grow them here, so I can’t give you any info, but if you share your zone others may chime in with advice.  Charlene

    Steve….that is a very pretty yellow color!  I hope they perform well for you in their new home.

    Mmarnee….those are some beautiful dahlias….love the bright colors.

    Molly….that is the best addition there is to your compost.

    Here is a pic of Opus Asters.  I saved seed so they are not as big as normal but still very pretty.  Charlene

    Good morning Molly, Del and all to follow.  I have about the same temps as Del this morning (46º). but it is supposed to be sunny, windy and 93º by afternoon.  That will really dry plants out so I imagine I will be doing lots of watering this evening.

    Molly…..I know it will be lots of work and expense to get water to your GH and get the new cover on, but it will sure be nice for you in the long run.

    Del….I knew you’ve been wanting a sunroom, but didn’t know you are getting estimates.  I hope the price they quote is reasonable enough that you can swing it….you’ll love it!

    DH has today off, so he is going to help me tear apart some chairs in my shop.  I am redoing all of the furniture for a beauty salon and she is closed this week and to reopen next Tuesday, so they’ve got to be done by then. 

    I hope everyone has a great day…..Charlene

    That sure is a cute little pink moth….never seen them here.  I can’t believe that you’ve never had whiteflies!  We have an infestation of them this year.  I know I will have so treat all plants before bringing them inside….at least twice!  They are so tiny they’d be hard to photograph, but I’ll see if I can get a pic. 

    Earwigs were eating stuff here earlier this year, but I haven’t seen any for awhile.  Charlene

    Ili…..I am not really sure what I’ll have to share that will do good in your zone.  We did have an extremely hot summer so I found out some plants that do better than others in the heat.  Once I have seeds collected to share i will send you a PM and we can go from there.  Charlene

    Steve….pretty salvia.  I see the little balloon flower and waved at her (him?)

    Gayle….Lovely zinnias….I have those colors of zinnias.  Are those from the seed I sent you earlier?  Doesn’t seem that long ago.

    Mmarnee….I love your dahlia pics….so glad you share them with us!

    Giddey…pretty MG and great photography!

    Just a variegated impatiens for me today….this is from a plant given to us by DH’s grandma in 1980.

    Good morning everyone.  It is 48º this morning, but weather dude says we have a hot week ahead of us.  Personally, I’ve been enjoying the cooler temps in the upper 60s.

    Sue…those cookies sound great….I’ll give them a try for sure!

    Molly….glad you got to have some time with your DD…..hope you get to spend more time with her before they leave to go upstate.

    Del….I remembered that Steve celebrated his 50th last year while we were at Bettes….recall all of us singing Happy Birthday into your phone…..lol

    Sharon…good to see you….isn’t it Georges Birthday today as well????….and your wedding anniversary tomorrow????  (CRS)

    Leslie….must be the day for “birth”days….our DGS is 14 so I made him an ice cream cake last night.  We already gave him his cash and he bought accessories for his IPOD.  I bet you are excited about that new DGD’s arrival!

    Wendy….I wish I could get motivated to do some fall cleaning.  I imagine you are getting excited and nervous as well about your new position next week.

    Have a great Monday everyone….off to my shop for me.  Charlene

    Posy….the 3 of us from the midwest (me, Kathy. and jan) flew into Rochester NY and spent the first and last night at Wendy’s house.  Iris from Canada also stayed at Wendys in her little camper….and Sandy(from NY) met us the next day to travel together to Bette’s place.  Charlene

    I have never seen a caterpillar like that here, but yet I have tons of Monarchs.  Do you guys grow them and then send the butterflies to me????  If so, I thank you! 

    Have fun with your nature experience, Leslie!  Also…keep us posted if you can.  Charlene

    Ili….I haven’t sent your poppy seeds yet because I am thinking since you are establishing a new garden you may want more than just those seeds….should I add Morning glories??  Charlene

    Joanne….I am impressed.  I actually like your article pre-editing by B&B, but they got most of it incorporated. (wish they would have listed the states and Canada. however….that is impressive) I don’t recall a pic with me sitting on the railing…..I sorta look like “Humpty Dumpty”….lol

    Thanks for sending that to the magazine….I hope others enjoyed it as well.  Charlene

    Glad you got power back, Bette.  Right about now I’d give anything for some of that quiet you are talking about.  2 of the GKs left about an hour ago, and now the 4 yr ld is here because he is jalous that the others got time with Gma and he didn’t….lol.  He is such a motor mouth that there is not a quiet moment….lol.  Charlene
