"Love these little guys, we enjoy them all summer ~ the more feeders we put out, the more hummers we have. I have seen as many as 20 or more, then it is a full time job keeping the feeders filled. Great video, thanks for sharing."
Hi Lori. My husband and I moved to our current home 7 years ago. Originally, our backyard was just a downward sloping square of grass. We hired a landscape contractor to install three level terraces, steps, paths and mark out beds around the perimeter. We then planted everything ourselves. It is a real labor of love for us. We both work in Manhattan full time, so it feels like the country when we get home and we spend every spare minute working in the garden.
Hi Lori ... I'm sorry but have never heard of Nodine "hollow" but tales are sometimes taller than life itself in Sharon. :) I do consulting work but not commercially as a Master Gardener per se; I am also an arborist but try to keep the number of clients down as I am also retired. On the other hand, as an MG, I spend several hundred hours a year in a volunteer capacity with residents of Seminole and Orange Counties here in FL. FL is quite different than CT but I have not lived there for 44 years or so.... brother still there. Fun to chat about home though...
Good Day to you Lori! Thanks on the compliment on the photos. The close up ones of my flowers were taken by my 19 yr old artsy daughter. She's got a very good camera and you can tell. The ones of my different flower beds are mine. She's got a good eye!
Hope your staying cool out there in the heat of summer. Take care, Carlotta
Hi Lori, I am fairly new to this sight by a few weeks. Already I have met so many people through cyber space. I ran into GI through Facebook and fell in love with it right away. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. I know people personally that like to garden. But on here it has been so much fun sharing, asking questions and getting great ideas. Your ribbon is the first I have given out and don't really know what it means either. I've gotten several and it just feels nice! I saw your pictures and just naturally gravitated to all the colors. I have been adding more each year and want to start increasing the different flowers that bloom at different times. I have not been brave enough to start a vegetable garden yet. Now I have a place to go and ask questions and get ideas it won't be as intimidateing. Happy planting to you!
"You should wait til the 25th to have them come and plant a bunch of above ground growers the 20th or 21st to show them how quickly things grow at the right moon cycle. The next new moon is the 24th.

"Yes, time and energy, it is gold. I long for the days when I could work hard all day , then get up the next and do it all again.
It takes a couple of days to recover from a big day in the garden now. I am opening my garden to a garden club group…"
"Its a girl, and I will teach her the Botanical names right from the start, so she does not to re learn them. I find people who are very fluent with plants names where taught by a parent or grandparent, who called plants by their botanical name and…"
"Your osteopermum look so lovely planted en mass. I can barely keep them blooming here. The fence finished just in time for everything to start climbing on it. Bravo! How many weeks of spring do you get before summer hits?
