What an interesting bloom Sharon.
It looks like you could bunch them together and have a Dahlia... or Football Mum... lol!

Looks like we've entered the Fall phase of the year finally.
After a rainy cool Summer, great for flowers horrible for Veggies, we're getting dry hot days and cool nights.
Temps in the upper low 80's days, nights in the mid/upper 50's, low, for us, humidity.
I just walked outside. It's currently 57 but standing in the Sun you can already feel the burn.
Very early Winter AZ or Southern CA in feel.
Going for 80.

I didn't know Pebble well thru most of my time here at DG but we spoke over the years.
I especially loved reading her posts about life in Turkey.
She arranged the first RU in that Country and loved loved her life there.

Recently I 'met' her and we became closer on the Health Forum.
I've lost too many Friends from brain cancer.
I knew many of the phases she would be going through and tried to help her keep her confidence up.
Sad to see such a strong vital bubbly women have to go thru this.
I will say that w/ the help of her Friends and Family she stayed confident and strong to her last post.
I hope her passing is brief and calm.

Pretty butterfly Sharon!
I saw my first Painted Lady of the season this week but it wouldn't stay still long enough for me to get a photo.

It rained off and on all night and into the morning. Not raining now but still overcast. It's cooler today and not so humid so it is really beginning to feel like fall. However, knowing our Arkansas weather, we could still have some hot days in store! LOL

itsy bitsy spider--It is black and silver, but very tiny. It is in the upper right corner on the flower stem.

Oh, Kelli... I would be glum, too! I'll be praying that everything can be worked out quickly and right-ly.

I'm sorry to hear about Pebble, too.

We've had a bit over an inch of rain this week, which has been VERY nice. We're still under moderate drought conditions, so every little bit helps! There's a 20-30% chance of rain every day this week, and the highs are only going to be in the 80s!!! And the Texans lost their first football game... Fall really IS here! LOL

We've had a busy but good weekend, and are looking forward to a busy week. On Thursday the big bunny is going to have her first filling. Ugh. Both of the girls have hypoplasia, which means the enamel on their teeth didn't form correctly for some reason, so they are going to get their permanent molars sealed on Thursday, too. It'll be expensive, but worth it, I hope.

Speaking of the bunnies, I need to shoo them off to bed. Good night!

Kelli, I don't know what to say. It's not an easy thing to go through something like that, either. We're with you.

An overcast day today. 85-ish. We took a trip about 35 from home to pick up some free rocks.

Bright sun, 80.
Lovely fall day.
Started digging Gladiolus corms today.
Also took the rotary mower to a bunch of weeds & done beans & other spent veggies.
The last picking of pickling cucumbers. Vines were pulled & piled as we went. I will burn them after they get dry.
Had the help clean out & redo one greenhouse. It is a small one & next year it will be all tomatoes. I plan on getting them in early, so I can sell ripe ones by June 1.
I built a couple more strawberry boxes. 12 more to go to get that house full. Strawberries are bigger than ever. I never had berries like this when planted in the ground.
An article in greenhouse grower magazine tells about growing in earth boxes inside a greenhouse. Farm is selling at a Farmers Market.

Jackie, have a great time on your vacation and don't forget us! Wonderful view of the mountains!
Marylyn, poor bunnies, they must be very brave! Give them a hug from me!
A strong wind has blown last night, but not that bad to do some damage. It was good though because it blew away the clouds. It's only 64 now, but it'll warm up to 81 later.
Zephyrantes candida just blooming. I'm writing an article about the plant and they are lots of species. This is a picture I took last year, but I'll take lots this year for the article. It was supposed to be ready 2 months ago, but with the garden all summer I didn't have time and energy for it...ugh!

Ric - so sad about Pebble, condolences to friends and family

Kiska - have a good trip!

Kelli - so sorry about the law suit .. how awful. Sure hope things turn out in your favor.

We're getting by, slowly adjusting. Don't think anything will happen on the job front anytime soon. DH has been looking into taking some courses in the University in the mean time ... unfortunately he was laid off just a tad too late to enlist for the fall semester ...

Now for the weather ... seems it's been windy for many of you, same here. Very blustery today and yesterday. Few rain showers today, more rain yesterday. High around 50F. Fall is here. I'm already dreading having to buy new snow boots for the girls ... don't really want to know how expensive they are now, it was bad enough last fall.

Hope you're all well!

Thanks for the encouragement and prayers. The car insurance company takes over now. For whatever reason, those people never settled with the insurance company. I don't know what makes them think a guy driving a 10-year-old Geo has any kind of money.

Some Phone Book or Bus Stop Bench lawyer is probably representing them.
Pretty common.

Some people are just money-hungry, Kelli, and they think that just because you have insurance that they can collect a bundle! I got news for them--they are wrong!
I'll be praying for you that justice will be served on the side of right.

Kiska: have a great vacation-- a month's worth--wow!

Celia: so sorry about the arbor but so glad there was no further damage. Congratulations on becoming a grandma--have you thought of a "grandma name" for yourself yet?

Marylyn, let us know how everything goes for the bunnies and their teeth procedure.

Ric, the big dipper has enough pups that I can share a few with my Mid-South gardening friends at our RU in October! :o)) nice begonia!

Adina: beautiful sunrise and also the flower.

Rann: pretty flower in your photo, too. Any chance of Iceland having a "mild" winter this year? If so, it should help with heating bills, etc.

I was able to get outside for about two hours and do some weeding this morning before the rain came back. A stagnant area of low pressure will keep much of the South under the threat of showers and thunderstorms. We are expecting rainshowers again on Wed. and Thursday. Enough already! (are we ever satisfied with the amount of rainfall we receive or don't receive? LOL)

This photo of a Don Juan rosebud was taken at dusk with a flash just before the rain started again last night.

I found another little spider on the Green Eyes echinacea last evening. It was still there this morning, in spite of the rain. Something is eating holes in the leaves of the echies, as you can tell--probably slugs--ugh!!

Oh, Moree is pretty but I definitely think Darrell is right--they should call you "babushka" or maybe "Bushy" for short--joke, joke! :o))) At any rate, no matter what you want them to call you, if they can't pronounce the word, they will come up with something entirely different. For instance, my aunt's name was Kathryn. When my older sister started talking, she couldn't say Kathryn--it came out as Tattee (pronounced like tattoo only with the long "e" sound). All 3 of us called her Tattee until she died and we still refer to her that way. :o))

Is that what you called her, Ric--Yaya Virginia?
Isn't it strange how something in a foreign language sounds perfectly fine to the people who speak that language and really odd to folks who only speak English, which is made up of many different languages.
I wonder what Grandmother is in French? In Spanish it is "abuela", if memory serves me correctly.
Adina: how do you say "grandmother" in Romanian? and how about in Iceland, Rann?
Kiska: what is the Eskimo name for "grandmother"?
(We may need to start a different forum on DG because there is a thread on the MId-South forum right now about "What do your grandchildren call you?")

Well enough about that--it's my bedtime, so I'll say "good-night" and that's in English! (but in Spanish it would be Buenas Noches! LOL)

Just getting back on here. Was out of town all weekend. Fri had a funeral in Illinois-came home that night, got up ealy Sat and went to Iowa for my neice's birthday party-came home that night, then Sun had a farewell party for a cousin joining Air Force and went to that that afternoon in another town here in MO and came home that night. LOL. Been busy and my left arm hurts from not having room to move it on Sunday. Had to sit in the middle of my grandpa's towncar and he had a hump there. Knees up to my face, and my grandma on my left and not moving over to give me room to move arm and my mom on the other side taking up leg room. LOL. All in all it could have been worse.

Weather was great the whole time. At times cloudy but for the most part the sun was out all weekend. First time I've gone to a funeral in IL and it wasn't cloudy or raining. Temps were perfect too.

Today it was mostly sunny and a bit warm in the sun but for the most part great. There was even a small breeze.

My ex's Grandmother was from Quebec.
I don't know if I ever hear her real name.
She was just Grandmere... gron-mare w/ an almost silent n.

To me Grandma was usually Grandma.
To my older more Greek cousins she was Yaya Virgie as they had two Grandmothers.
My Greek Grandfather died before I was born so I wasn't in the culture much.

My grandma's name on my mom's side was Mayme (May-mee) and that's what we called her, gramma Mayme. On my father's side, she was Grandmom. Sometimes grandpa would call her Grandma Petah which was her Blackfoot name. It means "golden eagle".

My DB and SIL in Oregon are Oma and Opa, German for grandma and grandpa. My mom was gramma. She always wanted to be called gammy but no one ever did.

I'm grandma CJ to the god-children.

Good morning!

Raining and breezy here this morning and 50F ... might seem cool to the rest of you but it's actually pretty warm for mid-September.

Interesting about the different names for grandmothers, in Icelandic it's "amma" (both a's as in apple), mother is "mamma" so you just drop the m when you turn into a grandmother ;-) Grandfather is "afi" (i = in)

Thanks everyone for the encouraging words they mean a lot to me.

Kelli - keeping my fingers crossed for you. That's one of the things that seem strange to us over here ... how American's are always suing each other in hopes of striking gold. Seems to have very little to do with justice and a lot to do with greed from where I'm standing.

These rose blooms are in the greenhouse ... 'Rhapsody in Blue'

Have a good day everyone!

Rann: you are "right on" about our "sue-happy" culture here in the U.S.! (unfortunately) By the way, that's a gorgeous bloom!

Pepper: I cracked up over your description of the ride in your grandparents' car--so sorry about your sore arm, though.

This has nothing to do with names for grandmothers but it does have to do with southern U.S. culture which, at times, is quite different from other areas of our country. I think most of you ladies will appreciate this--not so sure about the "left-brain" (logical) men--LOL

Yikes!-- it's been raining most of the night and still raining--HARD! Supposed to continue today and tomorrow. Currently 70F on my backporch.

This is what my backyard looked like just a few moments ago. The phrase "a river runs through it" comes to mind! We are waterlogged here but the EE's are loving it, Ric! I'm glad I live on a hill!

The rain has stopped--at least temporarily and I can actually see some sunshine peeking through the clouds--I wonder how long this is going to last?

He is talented that way and has painted some motorcycle helmets with decorative painting. What kind of wire did you use across the front to hold the pots in place?
Celia: your scrub jay doesn't appear to have a crest like our bluejays do. Am I right about that?
Pepper: what does sunny look like? LOL

pepper~weather sounds good as does the thought of having the extra flowers later on.
My daughter and I both do warm glass; today she is taking us to "Shipwreck Beads" which is nearby. Check it out online~she's been there and says it's a destination store-more beads/findings/etc than you can imagine; time and money can both get away.

Hi Everyone! I'm just going to join in here, Celia told me about ya'll and it took me a bit to find the right thread! I've read the posts here and since I've turned into a weather buff since moving to AR 2 1/2 years ago from CA it's quickly worn on me.

I live about an hour south south-west of Marilyn and get the same weather once in a while... our rain is fading throughout the weekend but the National Weather Service is saying we're setting up for a Large severe weather outbreak Monday, Monday night, and into Tuesday with a high wind shear so there is a good chance for tornadoes. I'm already scared and it could do a lot of different things by then. I've had some experiences with tornadoes and I'm deathly afraid of them. Just the thought of one might be close by, and what I mean by close by is within 500 miles from state lines moving away LOL

Welcome!
Any Friend of Celia and 'Neighbor' of Mau is absolutely going to feel right at home.

I can see where coming from CA to a place w/ 'Real' Weather could be scarey...
But as a veteran of numerous tornado sightings and several near misses you just have to learn to live w/ them.
Have a good safe spot to hunker down in and pay close attention to your radar and warnings.

The good thing is unlike Hurricanes and Santa Anna winds or thousand acre brush fires...
tornados are usually here and gone in a very short time.
Do listen to your local weather people... but DON'T freak out!
Most of what you hear is... this has the potential to be or this is characteristic of... a tornado.
Then NOTHING ever happens.
Hey they're drama queens.
It's their job to inform but they're looking for that big time Weather Channel gig too.
If it gets serious so do they... but the odds of them having to get serious are small.

I'd freak if they were standing outside my house, doing a live broadcast
and went "OH SHI..." and the picture went black as they sailed away...

I put in a storm shelter after I was stuck in an unsafe laundry room 5 different times in a 3 month period, one of those was an all night ordeal with a training storm, in spring of 2008. I'm in the foothills of the Ouachita Mountains and at the bottom of a 'gully' of sorts, the hills go down then back up, but it's sorta gradual. I know Mr. Teague up the road (the road is named after him) says this area has never been hit, he's lived here all his life and he's 80 something years old. A neighborhood about 3 miles up the highway got hit that spring and that's an extremely hilly neighborhood that had never been hit before. The problem with the storm shelter is it's fiberglass and needs about 2 dump truck loads of dirt really really bad. My house is at the top of a slope down in this 'gully' with a stream across the street.

They just reported on the local news that we have had 10 days straight of rain! I knew it was a lot but that's ridiculous!

I'm from Modesto, CA, 95350, it's Central CA, right in the middle of that huge valley, about 5 1/2 hours North of LA and those Santa Ana winds. I lived about an hour South of Sacramento. We never got brush fires either, just the smog from them. Any fire anywhere north, south, or west always gets that valley socked up with smoke, one of the many reasons I left.

Oh I've seen them get serious, our NBC has a really good Chief Meteorologist and they pull up the streets where the storm is going to be next, and more times than not it is a tornado that touches down. AR normal average is 26 tornadoes a year, I've heard that's a lot. I moved to Hot Springs April 2007, then we bought a house 30 minutes toward Little Rock October 1st, 2007, and the tornadoes in 2008 started in January and didn't let up until the end of May. The state ended up with over 110 tornadoes in 2008, so that's what I was welcomed to, and DH Dave telling me that AR didn't have tornadoes, so it was completely unexpected.

What's hilarious is my mom and her DH moved to Oklahoma City in April 2003 and they've been in their storm shelter twice, just this year. Counting the 5 times I should have been in it but didn't have it yet, I've had to go to mine 8 times. That's insane.

Welcome Crissy! Hope there won't be any tornadoes in your area. They scare me too ... fortunately we don't have any up here!

Gee, Crissy you are "higher" than I am--we are at about 300 ft here in Cabot. Welcome to the weather thread--glad Celia told you about us! There are LOTS of nice folk here from all over the world. By the way, they call me "Mau" here on this thread. Long story short, I got the name from a young woman with whom I used to work. I told the story on a thread on another forum and Celia picked up on it and brought it over here. Thereafter, I have been referred to as "Mau" by most of the younger (than me) folk here on the weather thread. :o))

For the rest of you, I had the privilege of meeting Christine(crissyr) in person at an RU in Mississippi in October of 2008. She has become a regular on the Mid-South forum--as far as I know, she is the "baby" (youngest) of Mid-South and I have the honor of being the oldest, so I have lots of "kids" over there, too! LOL

My forecast is the same as Christine's--no rain yet today but it looks as if the bottom could fall out anytime! :o((

I'm attending a "sweet sixteen" party for one of my DGD's late this afternoon. Her actual birthday is tomorrow but the party is today. 50 of her "closest" friends-LOL- will be attending as well as family members. They are having it at their church to accommodate the crowd. After tomorrow she will be able to drive without an adult with her--scary thought!
Here's the birthday girl with her younger brother--this photo was taken in March.

Mau I thought Ruth was the oldest??? There is a new person coming to that RU, so I may not be the youngest anymore, oh well, I guess I have to become a 'veteran' at some time, I'm just a sophomore right now though!

Oh I waited too long to eat, now I feel all drug out and icky.

The ground is soaked, the lawn is soaked, so Dave got the bright idea of mowing half the lawn. He wanted me to finish it while he's at work, said the mower had half a tank of gas but NO, it's empty! gggrrrr now my yard looks retarded.

I'll get my galoshes on and go out and take some pics! :)

uuuggg I don't have any idea. He's sometimes not the brain surgeon he thinks he is. There's a new sports grill in Benton, which is in a dry county, that just opened up and has a full liquor license under some private club whatever. Dave wants to go there tonight, not to drink or eat, and not til 10, I think they close at 10, he's thinking it's like Hot Springs where they have a band and stay open til 5am. I just want to say, ((((((((It's In A Dry County Dave!!!!!!))))))))

Went to Michael's in Hot Springs and had a party, all kinds of stuff for my wreath that I shouldn't have bought, it's got too much red in it.

Pompus Grass things
Chinese Lantern looking things
Something I don't know what it is
Fall looking ivy
Bright green small ivy
Small fall boquets

All of this stuff can be taken apart so I can put it in with all of that red.

Crissy,
All I see when I look at that lawn is what a waste of GARDEN Space! LOL!

Mau what a lovely shot!
Here you don't get full unrestricted driving privileges till 18.
I remember when you could get a full license in AR at 14... glad to see they upped it.

Celia that's one big wasp!
Biggest here are Cicada Killers.. same length but not as chubby.
Did you put it on Bugfiles?

Another nice bright sunny day here.
We gave Wu a flea bath, filled the old pond we repaired, watered and then I laid around and watched Football...
Watched OSU beat Toledo... big deal and USC get ROCKED by Washington!
Way to go Huskies!
If I were a betting man (wink wink) and laid off I'd be VERY happy... lol! ;-)

Looks like rain will finally be moving back in tomorrow for a few days.
Usually that means an end to Indian Summer and much cooler temps.
Wrong... we'll see mid 80's by Tues.

LOL Ric, when I have time I'll show you pics of my whole yard.

You can have the rain, it rained at my house today for the 11th day in a row, and once again, no sun.

But Look at my first brug EVER!

Hot hear today. I think it got to 89. And it rainedfor 5 minutes. Just enough to get the outside chair cushions wet. (sigh)

We spent the day shopping. We found a washer/dryer set we liked and a fridge. Woo hoo!

Crissy: I am actually 2 yrs. older than Ruth but she can claim the "oldest" spot (on Mid-South) if she wants to--LOL that's a gorgeous brug! Show us a picture of your wreath when you get it finished.
Ric: quit bragging about your sunshine--BAH HUMBUG!! (joke, joke)
Celia: nice photo of the clouds
Pepper: we'll be happy to send you some rain to rid the air of all that dust LOL

As Crissy said--rain here yesterday for the 11th straight day--overcast again today :o(( Somebody post a picture of sunshine!! LOL

This is Peach Belle--she hasn't done well at all this season until now. In addition to this bloom, she now has 16 other buds on her and no black spot--a miracle in itself! I hope all the rain this last week doesn't change that.

Papa Nolls name is unique Noll Labraska (middle name) is of German descent. The name Labraska is dated as early as the 7th century. It has been used throughout the family for eons. The latest to have it is my nephew who has it as his middle name as well.

Cloudy this morning and a bit drizzly still.
Looks as if the rain is moving out for about 12 hours or so...

Well I guess it's time to say "Goodbye To Summer".
Tomorrow at 5:18 PM our time it will be Fall or Autumn, however they say it in your area.
It's been an amazing Summer for me.
Yes I've been 'Furloughed' but it's the first full Summer in about 40 years I've had off.
We got tons done.
In fact it would have taken years of weekends to finish what we've gotten accomplished.
So I'm content.

I'll be hard job hunting after this week. I of course have been looking but not hammering it.
I figure the retail market will be softening up soon.
I love customer work and so am going to concentrate there for now.
Unless of course someone needs a warehouse manager... lol!
Kids are going back to school and I want to try to beat the Holiday Hires.
Either Restaurant Goods or Hardware I'm very comfortable in both arenas.
I figure if I can get in now...

Well off to feed the fish!
Have a Wonderful LAST DAY of SUMMER!

Good morning, everyone!! I think light pumpkin on your bedroom walls sounds lovely, Rusty! I would wake up hungry everyday, though... I love pumpkin! :-)

Our epi has several blooms on it, too, Sharon. Yayy! I've been watching it everyday... Maybe tonight.

Hi, crissyr! Welcome! :-)

LOL Dyson... yeah, my hammer photos never come out very well either. ;-)

It's going to be in the mid 90s today with a 30% chance of rain. The rain chances go up tomorrow, and stay up all week, so hopefully it will actually rain instead of missing us.
