Hey y'all, I brought an armload of beeswax candles. Hmmm, your'e right Zany, it does smell like a French house in here. Not that I would know about that you see. It's what I was told. ;)
Wow, look at all the wonderful arraingements. Y'all rock!
Candee, can we eat the groundhog? lol Or, I can let my boa loose. She'll catch the rascal.

Laurel, DE(Zone 7a)

Oh by all means let the boa loose. Now ya'll be careful outback boa is on the move and hopefully will have a full belly soon!

Hey y'all, one of my poems will be read at 4pm today on a radio show - Accents, a litereary spot on WRFL, 88.1 in Lexington , Ky. They have a website that has live-streaming and an archive in case you miss it. Whoohoo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Happy dance, happy dance.

Blossom, now don't panic. She's harmless, just passing through looking for varmits. She saw that thing on your head and thought it might be one, but I told her it wasn't. See, there she goes on her way. All is well. Ohmmmmmmm

Watseka, IL(Zone 5a)

Plantgeek - Congratulations on having your poem read on the air!! How exciting.

With all the mudslinging over and done with, all the varmints eaten or driven away, I figure it is safe to come into the cafe now.

I picked a bunch of apricots (lots this year, but very small, I never was any good at greendropping), transplanted some of my Dr. Moy Ginger, cleaned out behind the tool shed, and then was going to take a photo of my lilies....only to discover that someone had cut them between yesterday and when I noticed it this afternoon. This reminded me of someone's complaint earlier this year about someone stealing her opium type poppies.

So, Candee, the only two lilies I had that was anywhere close to your 8 footers are gone - guess I should be glad they only cut the flowers, and not dug it up.

I think I need something stronger than what Milky Joe serves -....

Have a great holiday everyone (Terri - you can celebrate with us too!!!)

Hey Terri - it is a little past midnight for me here and I am bushed. I don't see where you get your energy. (though I do think you are at least more than a decade younger than me LoL)
Great fireworks Blossom and Terri.

Watseka, IL(Zone 5a)

Well, happy happy ALL! We had fireworks of the best kind here eh! No singed hairs or burned fingers here, just a lot of whoooping and hollering of oooohs and aaahs!

Louisville, KY

Hey Dianne, my boa has a cousin who lives over your way. A very big cousin. Hungry too. She would be most happy to track that lily thief, wouldn't mind a salad with her meal. lol

Great fireworks y'all, and even better that they don't scare the critters.

Thanks for the toast. hic...believe I'll have another. If you google Accents WRFL it will take you to the website. Then, scroll down to the archives. Last Friday's poem isn't in there yet, but I have another from June 5th that is in the archives.

Laurel, DE(Zone 7a)

Not sure the acanthus hungaricus makes a very good cut flower, but it is interesting.
