Hey Stoma! Nice to see you again. :wink: I can see why you took that pic. Lots of nice, small chunks of wood neatly stacked that I would like to have for the firepit instead of those big chunks. :) Think of all the chopping involved.


JJH link reads: b]"To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow." Love that.


Thanks for the links peanut. As far as the crape myrtle shrubs, they're just so heavy w/bloom this year. Will cut the stems/blooms off as I usually do. Not much else can be done, I don't think. Have a small crape myrtle tree a few years that has never bloomed. Think I might actually get some coral blooms this year. If so, will celebrate...may even post a pic. Lost the tag (dang), but if it's coral it's Tuscarora which is what I wanted for year 'round interest.

Little Fonzie does resemble a stuffed animal that would squeak if you pressed on his tummy! :lol:

Picked up some Mums to plant when it cools down some for Fall color. Hate to get too ahead of myself.

So far I have gotten 2 ripe grape tomatoes (yes, you read that right, two) + 2 more turning + a handful of strawberries every few days. First year on the berries, should bear more next year. Planted late after my grandson left end of June. Mobile garden handy for moving to the sun as the days get shorter.

Lee, I was hoping you would post pic of your eggplant...& where's Stu?! :lol:

Thanks to those that shared. Nice diversion from some of the harsh realities we face here on CT.

So happy to see that you revived this thread, BS. Your roses are so pretty I can almost smell them, and I also love hydrangeas.

Claudia your dogs are super cute, and your cat is also.

Personally, I'm at a wedding in Indiana. Maybe I can get a few shots today, and post them tomorrow.

Best Wishes, everyone, peanut

Handsome canines Claudia. Names of your pets? In my neighborhood we tend to know people by their pet's names! :lol: Looks like kitty gets on fine w/the dogs. :)

peanut, I swear you are always on the run. Beginning to wonder... :P Would like to see pic of those mass plantings you did several months ago.

I LOVE the photographs of your two 4-pawed fur-kids. They both look bright and inquisitive and exceptionally well-loved. Tail wags to you.

So pretty BS.

Hopefully tomorrow I'll get some pics. DH was involved in a nasty car accident Saturday. He's OK, but his 3/4 ton diesel truck is totaled. We've been busy with dr, chiropractor and counseling. I'm actually quite surprised he agreed to talk with someone, but happy about it.

Claudia, what is it with the Japanese names?
How's the running going?

Hehe, I named my rescued husky from Italy «Atoq», which means «fox» in quechua. Then my first lundehund was named «Allco», which means «dog» in quechua. But here in Norway they always thought it was «alcohol» which is really bad :D Then I changed it in Aiko and named the cat Yuki (snow) to follow the same theme. And he is completely black.

I have started again running two days ago, 45 minutes and no problems at all. I hope to run 10 km in a race in September. And how is it going with your training?

Hi kiwiinoz

It's good to see you on-line again. Do you have any up-to-date photos of your collection of running shoes -- including those of Mrs Kiwi?? Also, I was wondering how your five-year evaluation went. I don't remember seeing any recent posts from you about this subject. Thanks.

Been trying out a few new combinations for container gardens here in TX, where it is hot, really hot.

Image

kind of like this combination of canna with the red and green variegated leaves with the light green sweet potato vine.



Image

moss roses seem to like the heat also, like how they spill over the side of the pot



Image

To hot outside for Frenchies most of the time, lucky for him he has numerous dog beds scattered throughout the house
