Weather is perfect here right now. 88 and low humidity for a change, we sure needed the rain. Not sure if I'm looking forward to all the storms and rain they are predicting for the week, but I'll take what I can so I don't have to go out and water the plants.

hello ladies - sorry to hear Pink did not make it Kathy :( same for Laz...I have been very fortunate that Manjula has not minded my busy wedding prep plants...I think tucking her in under the shelf of the varigated swt. potato vine has given her enuff shelter and the water that comes from the vine drips on her too..I was thrilled to check in on her yesterday and she has about 8 blooms right now (remember - chenille plant) I would take a picture - but my camera charger is missing oh & my sons 40" LCD TV was tipped over by someone at the wedding and broke, and then someone broke our toilet seat literally off the hinges..LOL...the morning of the wedding I am thinking do I seriously have to go to Lowe's and buy a darn seat? really? really? then common sense kicked in and I just made everyone use the other bathroom and I thought of Jax and went and drank two shots of whiskey to calm my nerves..needless to say the rest of the day went much smoother :) or at least "I felt" it did bahaha

She was a couple years old in that picture, totally potbound and very needy. So I took her down and cut her up, giving starts to several folks, most notably Fruity and rednyr. Chenilles are one of those "out of favor" plants that you don't see around anymore. They remind me of my childhood, how much I loved those little fuzzy 'caterpillars' and how they fascinated me back then. Still do. VBG

Chenille is really easy to start. They are starting to come back in vogue. Parrots Beak is one plant that I have never seen at any of the nurseries here.

Too bad the heat is doing such harm to our plants. My brugs and EE's look pitiful during the afternoons but look better come evening when the sun starts to go down.

Parrots Beak really does better up north then in the heat of the south...awesome pre summer plant for us in the south but the heat makes it stop blooming which is why it's better off 'bloom wise' further north - but I still love it!

Hello Mamas,
my condolence Joy. So sorry Laz didn't pull through.

Deanna, apparently Baby Manjula is thriving. Love her blooms.

For Mamas that are new to this competition, we need pictures to assess who's baby should be the winner.
When summer's over, that's when the judging will start.
So, plenty of time to let late bloomers shine!

Sorry I've been MIA. Trying to recuperate here and my attention span had been curtailed to a one year old's! By the time I read a few posts, I forgot what I wanted to say!!

Anyway, I'm very glad that you all can go on without any moderators.

I don't know whether any has been troubled by record breaking heat, but like Robin, my plants are affected.
The collection of DLs I have are looking pathetic. So many are 'balding' and mind you, I do deep water, but the heat apparently won.
Had 2 days of rain, to break the spell, then back to blistering heat again.
I'm sure this year, the water bill will be high for the unfortunate gardeners.

Guess it's time for me to plant cacti!!!

Kittyjo - our electric was 333.00 AFTER a discount of 30.00 - Progress Energy sent us a letter actually telling us we use 134% more energy than our neighbors - the key they have for neighbors says 'Neighboring condo's and or apt. complexes' I am like what?! we live in a 2000 sq ft house how does that compare to an apt? calling them today to ask just who exactly our neighbors are they are using for comparison..

Apparently I lost this thread somewhere along the line. Anyway, sad news here. My Lazarus Phoenix didn't make it either. :( And I couldn't raise him from the ashes like in the story although I tried my best. This brutal heat and sun were just too much for his little frame even though I kept him well watered and all. Same thing as before. Henceforth, I will plant JMs in a very large pot where they can be moved around when it gets too sunny in a location. Which it almost always does in my yard since I have mostly sun.

Boo hoo, I miss L.P. He was looking so good. Such a handsome young fella. :-(...

This one's for me ... he'd want it this way:

((((((Carole))))) You might need a double on that Quit Whining. Knowing you, it's a good vintage.

The heat is affecting most of us here. Unusual heat we've been having is killing my Dragon Pines.
Too many DLs have been sacrificed too.
I'll just have to start over with more tolerant plants.. like cactus!!

but her is just to young to hold that all back.

She will keep me company as I rake it all back to where it belongs, Sigh...mind iffn I dip in yer tub!!

I think I did good in naming my baby Persephone, With the Heat and humidity that we've had she is looking great. Our top day for hot was last week at 113 with the index at 119. She took it all in stride, I had to pull the brugs, ee and roses out of the sun and into part shade. Luckily this week we have cooled down and we got rain. So Persephone is in heaven,

Nice goin there Carole, I've never grown chenille plants. Would love to do so next year.

So sorry Charleen.. it seems that your DH needed to make a sacrifice, and it's Teddy :(
Kelvin do it annually!! This year, it's one of my favorite daylily with the evil weed eater

How strange is that Jax. An earthquake hits and here's your long lost brother?
Glad you check on the kids. Bet you're frightened! That would cost to fix a chimney... and you've totaled your credit card to pay the ransom!!
Let me send you my 26 cents right away!

I snored through the earthquake. Didn't feel a thing but then I'm too far away. Been through one, don't want to feel another one.. it is scary!!

Shaken but not stirred. Really tho, I didn't feel anything. Was playing with clay so that was were my thoughts were. Kel and Robert are keepers even tho we "got to so something bout those weedwhackers" ☺ But it sure does look better.

Chicken feet are delicious, if stewed with soy sauce, black beans, brown sugar and lots of garlic.
I don't know how the Mexicans do it... but Chinese, Thais, Laotians, Cambodians, Vietnamese, Malaysians and Indonesians love them. Guess famine taught these nationalities to 'improvise'!!

Move over Jax for Persephone. I will take a fresh pic in the morning when it's light outside.

It will be her last day in the sun. She moves in with Hades for the next 6 months. She hates it there, but she knows it will keep the Gods from warring and hurting such cry babies like Cryola.

Going out for dinner. Later.

But my dear Jax leaving that diseased appendage on her like that can cause the others to get that same disease. You should have taken her to the doctor and had it removed, poor baby suffering like that. No wonder Persephone chose to stick with that awful agreement. she couldn't bare to see all the suffering going on up in the land of green, well mostly green with some brown dried up stuff.

Fall off on it's own?!!! She has had to drag that thing around all summer, when she could have had it removed by a real doctor not the quack you took her to. I ain't casting aspirations at that poor lil' baby just her momma, she can't help it who owns her. She just has to suffer her parent's fondness for witch doctors.

Persephone has never had warts, unless you count the one big one called Hades. And I ain't never given her any strycdyme for the whatever Bluebonnet plague. She's a natural beauty.

The sun is too bright in this pic, so I'll take another one later.

HEY We did it Jax, finally. I guess going around and taking everybodies plants and giving the others the wrong kind of drink did it. whew I'm all tuckered out from yelling and clapping and crying, just like we won Miss America isn't jax I gues throwing them fishies sure helped.

Thank you Jaye and thank you to jax's big sis. Judge sis.

(Sorry don't have any plants to send to the 'HOME' right now). In fact Persephone has buds on her. She ain't dropped a leaf yet. Thinks she is still in the running. I ain't gonna tell her until after she blooms that I's a good mummy.. Don't want her to get sick.

It actually missed us altogether. It skirted around us to the west and north. I, for one, was not sorry. :/

We have had a couple of cold dips, but my bird baths have been frozen overnight less times than I have fingers to count. I thought I had to live in Florida to see a winter like this!

Seeing sprouts in my winter-sow jugs outside and inside too - it's always an exciting time. :)

Glad to see/hear you Jax. I'll keep an eye out for you come springtime.

Congrats on the blooms, Mama Rednyr!!

Amanda, tornado hit my BIL's town, Charlotte. Now the police are patrolling the damaged areas for thieves. Had some rough winds here, but not enough to bring down any limbs.
Don't know if any lives in Charlotte were lost, but NC seems to be getting it's regular share of tornadoes since I moved here. Thought I had left the hurricanes behind, back in the gulf. Well, here, I'm facing, hurricanes still PLUS tornadoes.

I learnt not to put anything in the ground till after Easter here.

We too, have had some severe weather in the Piedmont, but here locally we have been fortunate this season. I will knock on wood as I say that, and remember to batten down the hatches whenever there's a threat.

Stay safe.
