What Is Growing, Going or Gone

What is Gone Three fourths of the winter pansies are gone. Depending on the heat and rain, one pot of pansies still blooms forth.  The May and June weather we’ve enjoyed lengthened their growing season. They had quite a run – September through June! What is Growing...

Not Quite the Middle of May

Not Quite the Middle of May

  Approaching the Middle of May It's not quite the middle of the month, but this year’s May will bring forth flowers upon flowers; weeds upon weeds. Yes, I have happy geraniums; I also have clover that is pushing through asphalt! While intermittent probing sun...

Don’t Ask, But I Might as Well Tell

Given the wonderful dinner our son-in -law and grandkids threw for the moms in the family, don’t ask how my new food plan is working. But, I might as well  tell you: I was not as abstemious as I was at the banquet. Let’s just say I sampled almost everything . . ....

Make a Decision and Do the Chores

Make a Decision and Do the Chores

Chores matter. So, do the decisions to do them. If “Today is not a dress rehearsal for tomorrow,” let me make a good decision to use my time wisely in my autumn’s garden. A true truth, and good advice . . . but what does that mean in an autumn’s garden? Perhaps...
