"Not sure if the owl works or not. I had snakes in the garden too. So far the only things that didn't grow was my carrot seeds, corn and okra. But they were planted where I didn't have the owl. I didn't get the owl until later. I had…"
"Thank you Anne. I don't get on here much but when I do I enjoy it. I need to get my pictures of my garden loaded soon. The Tomatoes and Potatoes are doing great. Guess it is all the rain we have been getting. The plants are big just hope the…"
Thank you Kay! As for the picture it is actually about 3 1/2 years old. I was pregnant with our baby girl in it. She is now 3. Time does fly. I will have to get a newer one posted.

Your flowers are nice. I notice you have a Calla Lily. I bought one a few months ago and noticed that it has no flowers now but some strange pod things on it. It is in semi shade. It is not doing as well as yours. Do you know what the pods are and how I can get it to do better? Thanks.
"Josephine, I cover my deck & patio with very large containers so there is very little room for much else. My backyard is actually not much bigger than your yard-- with most of the lawn gradually removed! I just love to mix flowers up so they can…"
