    You are more than welcome.  No problem!  I’ll keep some in case someone else might want aster seeds.

    Looks very nice.  I know renovations are a lot of work, but when you see the end results….it’s all worth it!

    Bette, I guess you can say I’m a bit antsy today….forgot to mention your post.  Yes, you are lucky not to have to pay for water.  We sure don’t have a shortage of it.  These days it rains during the week and the weekends are beautiful.  Strange how when I worked it was the opposite.  I always waited for the weekend….yet it was a wet one….often.

    Good morning!  I’m bright and early this morning.  I have to go for my ultra sound just after lunch.  In the meantime I’m waiting for the rain to start.  Right now the sun is out, but not for long.

    Wendy, my works is out of order…for now.  I called the company, and must say the customer service people are great.  While on the phone, the young man asked me to plug in the charger.  When I told him the color of the light, he said there was nothing wrong with my works but the charger was faulty.  They will send me a new one.  Plus he gave me the address in case I need service.  If that still does not work, they will send me a new trimmer.

    Karen, wish I could send you some rain.  Love your little night blooming ‘weed’…lol.

    Molly, I had to trim by hand yesterday.  I’m waiting for the new charger.

    Charlene, hope you have an easy day at work.  You mentioned asters yesterday.  I will gather seeds from both the purple and pink.  I will gladly send you them.  I know the Mammoth Quill did not do well, but these asters are great.  I have two plants that reseeded themselves from last year, but because they were in the ground, they will bloom at the normal time.  These that you see were started in the house.  By the way, just to let you know…..I planted these flowers on both sides of the house.  I kind of neglect to water once in a while.  I noticed that asters don’t like too much water.

    Well I had better get started.  After the hospital appointment I’m going to Costco with my best friend.  She is the one taking me to the hospital.  Normally my DD would take me, but with the young ones, I don’t want them around hospitals.  These days there are just too many viruses hanging around.

    Have a great day!

    Well it is not working again.  I’ve taken all those pictures the same day without any changes to the camera.  Not sure what is happening.  Must be my Google.

    Beautiful pictures Sharon.  I hate the fact that I’m whining, but we have had so few birds at the feeders.  I don’t know why.  I’m just praying that they decided to fill their bellies with natural stuff rather than the seeds at the feeders.  I can understand that.  We don’t like to eat the same food every day….(LOL).

    Again I took a picture of a goldfinch at the same feeder.  I don’t dare post it.  Too many these days of the same birds…..!

    Good morning!  Hurray…..the sun is out.  For how long, that’s another story.  They keep predicting a percentage of rain, but so far not a drop.  Perfect.  Yes, it is cooler than normal, but the temperature is supposed to rise by the weekend.

    It’s pay back time.  I will be working in the garden all day.  I have to transplant several hostas.  This should be fun.  The weeds unfortunately have been waiting for me.  Not too many birds around these days.  I’m getting worried.  Talk of the West Nile virus is in the media.  Apparently birds and mosquito’s go together to create this virus.

    Hope you all have a nice day.

    I enjoyed visiting all your posts here this morning.  Such beautiful flowers and scenery.  Yes Iris, I can remember the days of camping with the kids.  Great times were had.  I too love to hear the rain-drops on the tent.  Mind you one year it rained so much that I had to cook my spaghetti in a tent.  Let’s just say it was messy…..LOL

    Steve, I agree with you, this year’s asters are way too early for our region.  It must be because I started them from seed.   They were a nice size when I planted them.  Maybe that’s why they are blooming early.  Who knows…..!

    Gayle, that is not milkweed.  It is a wild phlox.  I have a few of them that I’m trying to domesticate…for a better word…lol
