I don't know if the elderberry makes berries that are edible. It's a recent purchase and still in the pot.

Gary has an appointment on Thursday for surgery at 1:00pm. To remove the left you know. Please keep him in your prayers.

Rann The way you feel at 60* is how I feel at 90*! Its so sad seeing the damage to your area. I really hope the owners of the longhouse rebuild. Its an amazing structure. Is there a chance that the springs will fill back up? Your girls are so cute! Im envious of your garden!
Celia You are welcome to the picture! I love the elderberry so pretty! You must have a welcoming garden to have so many visitors! LOL! What is that beautiful yellow bloom?

Helloooo! I'm back! :D We have had an awefully Hot 4 days. It's been 100 on my deck 4 days in a row. Of course the shade says 93, which is way too hot for this time of year. I've been trying to keep the potted plants alive. I really hate to water the beds this early, but that's what I've been doing. I had to move my poor tomatoes to a more shaded spot to save them.
Dyson, I hope you didn't get that bad weather Saterday.
Sharon, Gary is in my prayers.
Sidney, Your Coleous! They could not be any prettier! :) Are you finished with work, yet?

Awesome pics, everybody!

Rann, I am impressed w/ the Viking Longhouse and do hope they rebuild.
Se_eds, Hope that you get some relief tomorrow! We got some rain this evening...sending it your way! :D
Kelli, Awesome, as always! :D I really cannot express how wonderful the walks are that you take us on...Thanks.
Kiska, That looks like a scene from a book that I've (JW) got. ;) Love it! :D

I would send you all a pic of JW in his new little pool, but I can't. His swimming trunks were too tight (12 months size), so to save a diaper he went "bare bottomed". I will tell you this....I have never heard him just sit in one spot & giggle before! :D

The answer to the trivia is...A
A severe freeze in central and northern Florida caused about $2.2 billion of damage in December 1983.

Stay Cool!

Sharon I promise to get more variety in those pictures. I am truly in love with that one above and will try to keep that combination togeather.
I know JW is pure joy. I try not to covet everyone's GBs, but it's hard.
Nice little cooling rain.

My arbor bed is now in full "late spring" bloom.

(Giggling at the thought of JW giggling...) ^_^

I'll be praying for Gary on Thursday, Sharon. Did he handle the visit ok?

And, yes, shortly after I turned the sprinkler off we had a thunderstorm come through and it poured. Anyone want to borrow my sprinkler? It seems to do that quite often...

Your arbor bed is gorgeous, E_B. :-)

Balotesti, Romania(Zone 5a)

Guys, what beautiful blooms!
Rann, I'm so sorry about the damage in your region. I also love the Viking construction, so cool! I hope they rebuilt it! Your girls are so beautiful, do they have your eyes? Your garden looks great!
Sharon, love the bromelia bloom! I'll keep Gary in my thoughts and prayers on Thursday.
Celia, the flowers are so beautiful, especially the pink ones!
Joey, your peonies are so beautiful! What colors do you have?How is our boy?
E_B, those foxglove are awesome!
Kiska, what a beautiful view of the pond, it's great you have both swans and ducks !
Marylyn, how is your big bunny feeling today?
Marsue, so many butterflies, they are beautiful!
It's warm here and sunny, but they forecasted rain tomorrow, we need it fo rthe garden. My daturas are blooming and balsamineas too, but they need water!
We went to buy th ereails for the curtains yesterday and a table and chairs for teh terrace, also a barbecue for the garden. I was beat last night and hardly make it home!LOL I'll post more pics later.

Amelia Island, FL(Zone 9a)

Joey Ive been moving plants to the shade as well. Its scorching outside. I got a good giggle just thinking about JW in the pool! LOL!
Sidney I love the coleus! Theyre so pretty! Do yours wilt in the heat?
E_B Thanks you. Im in awe of your garden.
Marylyn Remember the movie Rainman? Thats Gary before/during/after seeing a doctor. He paces and mumbles. He does ok, but did have to take a pill. I used my sprinkler. Seems its connection to the skies is loose because it isnt working!
Adina You must post more pictures of your house!

Marylyn, How is Joy's mouth? Back to normal, I presume! :D I have the same problem when I wash my car! All I have to do is wash it & voila! I have rain! The last time I washed it it started raining before I got finished...That's right, I washed the wheels in the rain! :D But I didn't bother w/the towel dry! ;)
Sharon, he is in my thoughts constantly....& he is on the prayer list. Many, many praying for a complete healing. Prettty! Flower! :D Love the color! Love Broms! :D To me they're very special.
Adina, Yes! Please post more pics of your house & those lovely fields! JW is 'fine as frog hair' (mighty fine). He's crawling everywhere. So I do a constant vigil. One good thing, tho. He definitely understands the meaning of 'no' & minds very well. :) But (LOL) he thinks that his stroller needs constant repairs! ;) And the Peony? I have no idea what kind it is...my cousin gave it to me when she cleaned out her flower beds 2 years ago.

Joey, while I was reading your post, all I heard were baby giggles in my head! Such a happy sound. Sometimes I wish I had a little one in the house. Or close by to hear that sound for real. ☺ My peonies are NOT doing well. I have them in the wrong place. The former owner of our house planted them in the grass and I just let them be because I didn't know what they were until last year.

Sharon, your brom is a pretty color. The other (moss rose?) is pretty, too! That's so funny about Gary mumbling! My DH does that. He has a running monologue with himself. It's hard to tell if he's talking to me sometimes. lol

Early, all my foxgloves died. I'm very jealous! ☺

I'm going to say...B...on the trivia.

We got new carpet picked out and set up for installation! Yipee!!! The couch is all ready for delivery and we also found a coffee table and an end table we like. All the work and deliveries will be made after we get back from vacation. I'm not sure which I'm more excited for! For which I'm more excited?

I got my camera delivered yesterday. A Nikon. I've never had a camera so complicated before. Having much fun, though. My DB in Oregon got the same one so we're going to compare notes when we see each other.

48F with only 60 today and rain. I like this weather much better than the 90s we usually have by now. I DID get sunburnt the other day, though. Staying inside today.

Good morning/afternoon! :-)

It's a beautiful sunny day here today, bit of a cool breeze and about 58F. The pool was very busy today, felt quite warm for swimming.

Sharon - Gary is in my thoughts too. Hope tomorrow's surgery won't be too hard on him. I don't know if the springs will refill - I sure hope so though, they looked much prettier with water in them. I guess only time will tell ......

Celia - we have similar temps today :-) Except here it's sunny ;-)

Joey - sounds like JW is keeping you busy ;-) lol Neat bug! :-)

Adina - thanks - you be the judge reg. the eyes ;-)

The garden club here had a plant swap about two weeks ago and much to my annoyment I was among those interviewed and photographed (I prefer to go unnoticed ......) Anyway it was in Friday's paper and the photo isn't as bad as I'd anticipated so here goes ......

Hope you all have a great day!

That's a great picture of you! Your girls look just like you. LOL

Isabella, MO(Zone 6b)

Rann: I agree with Celia. I see your sweet countenance in the faces of your girls. You hardly look old enough to have children!
Sidney: I love the coleus!
Sharon, I found the baby brom in your photo! Love the shade of red on that flower in your last photo. We'll be remembering Gary and your entire family in prayer as he undergoes surgery tomorrow.
Joey: your story about JW giggling made me laugh. What a sweetheart he is! Guessing D on the trivia. What a neat photo of the "bug".
EB: love that arbor bed--simply beautiful!
Celia: How exciting about your new furniture! "For which I'm more excited?" is grammatically correct but none of us really talk that way, do we? LOL Monty has such a hard life! Poor thing--LOL! Have a great time on your vacation and take lots of pictures of the beach. Wish I could stowaway in the trunk of your car!

My best friend is having a radical mastectomy for breast cancer on Friday. Her name is Janie and she is single and she is raising her 13 yr. old granddaughter alone. The Lord knows that Janie needs to live to raise her granddaughter. Please remember them in your prayers, too.
Janie's granddaughter will be staying with us while Janie is in the hospital and possibly for a few days after Janie goes home. My DGD and Janie's DGD have known each other since they were babies and my
DGD will be spending some time at our house during this period, too.
Janie's sister and mother are available to take care of Janie while she is recuperating.

well, here we go again...

Hi 101 F
Lo 66 F Triple digit heat will make its return across the Panhandles this afternoon as winds increase from the southwest 25-35mph...and gust upwards of 50mph! Needless to say watch out for blowing dirt, tie down that lawn furniture, and be mindful of the elevated fire danger. A Red Flag Warning is in effect for the central and western Panhandles from 11am-10pm. Also an isolated thunderstorm or two my spark up in our eastern counties along the dryline later on this afternoon.

And on the southeast side of the state (insulated by the Gulf from the nasty temperature extremes that TF gets in the far north) ...

Mostly cloudy early in the morning then becoming partly cloudy. Highs in the mid 90s. South winds 10 to 15 mph.

All in all, I'd rather live here. :-)

Rann, you're beautiful!!! The girls definitely get their smiles from you. ^_^

Joey, Joy is completely back to normal. We just have to be a little careful when we're brushing her teeth, not to bump the stitches. We go back to the doctor's office on Friday for a follow-up. :-) Since "scary" isn't an option, I'll pick C.

I'm praying for Janie and the entire family, marsue.

Celia, LOL... Monty's thrilled, huh? How can you tell? He does seem to be enjoying the sax music...

Tamara, I read your weather report and thought, "Blahhh".

It was really noisy here this morning. They were cutting trees or bushes at one of the houses behind us. It might be the woman behind us having her oleanders cut to the ground. She has this done at least once a year. I have no idea why.

Very nice pictures from your hike on Saturday, Kelli. The yucca is nicely symmetrical but I wouldn't want to fall into it! LOL
Adina, the house is really looking good. I love the tile in all of your bathrooms as well as your light fixtures. Very nice. Glad the doggies found some shade! and of course, the modern conveniences (such as the TV dish) are very important--not to mention the bathrooms! LOL
TF: I'm sorry about the triple-digit heat in your area. Maybe you will get some relief soon.
Marylyn: glad that Joy is doing so well. Thanks for the prayers for Janie.

Currently lots of sunshine and 89.

Fritch, TX(Zone 6b)

great pictures everyone!

kelli, i second that: "Blahhh"!!

already to 100 headed to 104... and there have been fires... gald we got that swim in early so we can hide in the house. i hope the chickens are hiding in theirs. took them our watermelon rinds and some icecream... Orion got his first swim in the big pool, of course i am holding him, so no pictures, DH was busy chopping wood before it got too hot. gotta fill that woodshed he just built. i hung out one load of laundry, and half was dry before i finished!

"Great news...the record heat from today will give way to more tolerable weather tomorrow with daytime highs falling back into the upper 80s and low 90s....with less wind!! Now, other than a slight chance for a storm in our eastern counties tonight....Saturday evening looks to be the next best chance for rain as a few thunderstorms roll in from the mountains late.
