Hi BrendaVR!!!!!!!!!!! Glad to see you made it through the winter. Weather was rough here, so I know it had to be terrible up your way.

Quoting:(well I know I SHOULDN'T join but the question is: Will I join anyways?)

Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Now you sound just like the rest of us.

Most of us have seed we haven't gotten to yet, but we don't let a little thing like that stop us. Hilarious! Hilarious!

Glad you had fun and hope you decide to join in again. Your more than welcome too. Big Grin

I've had that happen and am sure others have too where I tried to grow something and it didn't take. Sometimes it's me being to impatient for the seed to germinate, not realizing some may take a season or two to sprout or me just doing it right and having to try a different way.

I'm still dumping pots of stuff that all died from cold and than floods here. Hopefully next year will be a better one. I'll just keep on trying. I had a neighbor down and yesterday we both was talking about what we could do to try and stop our areas from being flooded.

A neighbor tried to put out seed for cool crops and the flooding rains we just got, destroyed everything. I expect the neighbor across and down the road may find some veggies growing in his yard from where the seed all washed away over to his area if it hasn't rotted first.

Today is a sad day. Have to face the fact that winter is coming as all my hummingbirds have gone and migrated on. I'll keep fresh feeders up for several weeks yet for those still migrating from the North on down, but I sure miss seeing them fuss and buzz around while I drink my morning coffee. I had a couple of babies born here this year. Sure hope they make it to their winter home ok and back again.

It always amazes me in the spring when they come how something so tiny can travel such a long distance and with the way things change, still manage to find their way back to your house again.

Now that they are gone, it's battle time with the squirrels. Darn critters are already starting to dig up plant roots while they bury their nuts. A whole big yard that they could bury nuts in and nope they gotta always bury in my plants. It's so cute watching them do their little patty-pat-pat when they burying their seed, but not so cute when I am trying to rip tree seedlings up everywhere out of beds and pots from them. I could have a great tree farm if I could just corral them all, give em each a bag of seed, and have them walk a field in a row and plant. Whistling Hilarious! Hilarious!

Wild.... Your Zinnias are beautiful. Did you have to keep them deadheaded or are they self cleaning to keep blooming? I have just about gotten to the point where I like the Zinnias of smaller height. Seems they don't mildew from the high humidity here as bad as the tall ones, but the tall ones sure do look pretty too when in bloom and blowing gently from the breezes.

Gonna have another cup of coffee than head outdoors. Need to pick up limbs from the wind and see what else is ready of seed to harvest.

Have a "Pinky" day folks and see ya later.
