Hi Jean. Right now my garden is sprouting weeds at an alarming rate....we finally got some decent rain, but it brought a host of small hungry mosquitoes and fire ants....but that has not stopped the daylilies from putting on a lovely show and the crape myrtles are exploding with color. The coneflowers are in full bloom and the rudbeckia is setting nice fat buds. We are continuing the battle against the huge (4 in +) lubber grasshoppers. They can devour a crinum lily in a single day. I told my Grandson i would give him a dime (he is 16 and nickels don't work anymore...grin) for every Lubber he disposed of....I now owe him a little over $30....yup, we are having a plague of them.
