Neil, I must admit that the breakfast you describe sounds quite good. We get here what are called 'English muffins' which are quite good but I've no idea if they have anything to do with England or not. Regardless, I like them.

In my garden this afternoon my Calistemon citrinus 'Splendens' decided to give us a show. How lovely is this?
Regards.
Neil.

Neil, the Calistemon citrinus 'Splendins' is indeed a show stopper. Outstanding.

Dear Lee, you did not bother me at all. Our Master of Horticulture is three years full time, I have done it! A Degree is three years full time I have one! Plus seven years Apprenticeship which I have done.
I have come across a lot of plants in that time and studied Toxicology as part of my Degree. I have all species of Bottle Brush in my Garden as I love the things.
I have more books than most people can imagine as Horticulture has been my life! I do not just put pictures on here my cubit, I love what I am doing and that is the difference.
Unfortunately I cannot do the physical work anymore due to injuries, but all that knowledge is not wasted now. I can and do put things on my cubit that make people happy.
That is what life is all about. For life is too short to get worried about trivial matters!

irises
2" of rain over the weekend, needed for plants but grasses & weeds accepted it also. Not pleased as iris blooms are almost over except for a couple siberians. One of those a UK product is going great guns will have to take some to our club sale to project other siberians. Siberian is named 'Anglesley' a taller blue.

Hey Connie,
Meridian would be about a 3 1/2 drive from here. Goodness, it's literally been yrs. since I was last in Meridian.
I'm not exactly sure where the other town you mention is but I think it's close to the Gulf. Is that right? It would be an 8 hr. drive from here to the Gulf. A long way. Anything over 6 hrs drive for me and I'd rather fly.
Next time you are in this neck of the woods, you must come by for a visit.
Lee
P.S. I see you live in Corpus. We used to go to Brownsville when I was a kid and that was really a long drive. We used to stay the night in Corpus and it's a beautiful city.

ANNOUNCEMENT
Dave has put a new system on cubits for us and it is a good idea.
Instead of the thread being too long they have been split up, don't panic it is easy!
When you click on a thread at the bottom are little boxes with page numbers in i.e. 1, 2, 3 etc. The higher the number is the thread that is the most recent.
So if you click on 3 then it takes you to the recent thread. Mine has 40 posts per thread and then it takes you to the next one if you hit the number you want!
The reason Dave has done this is to help people with slow net or dial up internet connections.
Most net systems work like this as it saves you going through lots of posts. Now you can go to the bottom of the first thread and click on the highest number and it takes you to the bit in use.
This system is now all over cubits.
Thank you.
Neil.

Neil, I already found out about those new little boxes on another forum... seems to take longer, I think--- but it's ok; we don't have Dial-up, so ours is pretty fast anyway. Are you already busy working on the Next Article? or are you taking a Break??!--- I wouldn't blame you if you did! I'm sure each one takes a bit of Time to do; we all appreciate you doing it! I tip my hat to you.
Lee, I used to live in McAllen, Tx, which is in the Rio Grande Valley, just like Brownsville... that same brother of mine lived there for a number of years too; we also liked to go to their beach there sometimes, as it was void of all the tourist-stuff there--- just plain 'beach', nice & quiet... They also have a great Zoo, which was built to separate the animals with very few bars or cages--- love it... we used to take our kids there quite a bit! Since it's on the tip of TX, you can go to where the River meets the Gulf; did you ever do that?? Once in college, I was in a Marine Zoology class, & we went there for 'a lab'... we had a cool professor, & we all swam across that area of the Rio Grande where the width wasn't too wide--- we were 'Wetbacks'! Whistling Hilarious!

Oh, Lee, yes, seems Gateau ( pronounced 'Go-shay') was close to the Gulf--- humid, as I remember! (like here!) Rolling my eyes.

You are right on the pronunciation of the town. I just couldn't remember how to spell it. Hilarious!
There is a wildlife refuge, an island, I think that I'd like to go to in TX for the birding activities there. Many of them don't make it up quite this far. Do you know the place?

Neil... Hilarious!
Lee, you're probably talking about 'Aransas Wildlife Refuge'--- alot of Birdwatchers go there! There is also a 'Hazel Bazemore' or 'Bazewood'? Park in town that is a place that supposedly has lots of varieties of birds, certain times of year... Rolling my eyes.
Have a good day everyone!! Group hug
