"If you have cats, don't forget to use those litter buckets for rain barrels.  Just let them fill up, and put the lid back on so the mosquitos won't lay their eggs.  They aren't so heavy that you can't move them."

"Aunt B, Walmart now has cute colorful laundry baskets that don't have mesh, they are solid.  They also have handles.  All you would need to do is punch holes in the bottom.  They are in a round shape."

Storms

Posted on June 13, 2009 at 6:58am 7 Comments

We just about got blown away down here in Arkansas yesterday! It took the top out of a huge oak and that landed in the street, blocking traffic. When it fell, it landed on a wire that was attached to a street lamp, which broke off and landed in the neighbor's yard. The crazy people kept driving over the wire, not knowing if it was live or not. Not a smart thing! There were so many calls for the city, the police came out and moved the top of our tree into our neighbor's yard. It's so big and… Continue

Stop and Smell the Flowers!

Posted on June 10, 2009 at 7:32am 4 Comments

This morning it's very cloudy and getting rather humid. However, I wish every one of you could smell the big old abelia and gardenias by the back door that are in full bloom. It's the most wonderful fragrance!

Gardeners Index Photos

To all you fantastic gardeners and, yes, that means YOU! I'm very new here, about a week, and I've never seen so many beautiful pictures of gardens in my life. I have tons of gardening picture books and they don't hold a candle to all the gorgeous pics I've seen here. Who needs gardening magazines at $7.00 a pop! I started looking at the beginning of the Gardeners Index photos and still have hundreds of pages to go, so then I went to the last page of the photos. I've never had so much… Continue

Can anyone tell me where I can get some castor bean seeds? I love those plants. Thanks.

Hostas in Containers

Posted on May 29, 2009 at 8:29pm 12 Comments

Have you tried growing hostas in containers? I started growing them like that a couple of years ago and I love it. I checked on the internet for some small-leafed hostas and they are simply adorable. I was a little afraid they might not survive because they weren't in the ground, but when I saw a lady in Utah growing them that way, I decided to try it in Arkansas and it's been wonderful.

Hi Mary, nice to get your message and I hate to say that here we have had a mild winter(one bad freeze) I have a lot of blooms in my yard from Forsythia to Camillias, Star and Pink Magnolia and many others. Here in Junction city we have a Daffodil festival every march so all over town people line fields and yards with daffodils, if you want to see a town full of yellow and have a homemade cinnamon roll, we are all in bloom and awaiting the Grange ladies cinnamon rolls. Spring has arrived here

Yeah, that bug just came out of its shell and I had to take a pic. Thought it was cool since I've found their shells all the time as a kid. Just the first time Ive ever seen one come out like that.

Thanks for your comment. The living wall at Botanica in Wichita, Kansas is beautiful. It was fascinating how they built it with pockets for planting. The area in the photo is protected from the afternoon sun and wind. The plants looked much nicer than the other side that was more exposed to the elements.

Ann, the first time I saw one of those moths, I didn't know what it was. It looked so much like a hummingbird! They are so fascinating to watch. I love them!
