Rarely do I lose a game of "stump the gardener", but this one's got me. See the photos and read what I do know about this lovely perennial at The Garden Buzz.
It has finally cooled off here in Illinois. For about 5 minutes. Meaning you can be outside for more than an hour without your skin melting! So, it's only 90. My poor girls! (my slang for flowers) they just cant get enough water poor dears.…Continue

we had flooding all over town last weekend. we have a creek that runs a few houses down and when it floods it almost reaches our property. last at night i went outside and my large dog found something in the grass that instantly became a play toy. i went to go see and it was a poor little frog that my dog had picked up and spit out and pounced on. i wasnt sure if it was alive. it was so still. i went and got gloves and tried to pick him up. it seemed he was gripping on to the grass for dear…Continue
A warm, sunny afternoon, great time for "walkies" with Lady in Saratoga Park, our little neighborhood green space. As we're going along the crushed gravel path, me in my Jazzie and Lady in a halter and 20' leash, I'm noting the different sounds around us. The wind rustling through the leaves; the crunch of gravel under the Jazzie wheels; birdsongs - cheeps, chirps, tweets; buzz of bees; clicking of crickets; the jingle of Lady's dog tags; Lady huffing and puffing…Continue

Most of the garden areas on my property here in the dry tropics are all rather boring and drab. There are beds filled with lots of palms, ferns, hibiscus and duranta repens shrubs, acalyphas and some crotons ... but they are not all that interesting as there's little change through the year ... remaining, for the most part, green throughout all the seasons.
There are no great expanses of lush green lawn ... there are no lovely borders full of stunning perennials.…Continue
Besides me having fun with planting and gardening, I'm having fun with my pets as well. I got 8 cats and 3 dogs. One rainy morning, I found 3 of my pets together cuddled in one corner. They look very comfortable with each other. One thing they do i don't like, they messing up my plants and cats poop everywhere! Smelled cat poop? Gives you tantrums...heheheh…Continue
yesterday i went out to my garden and noticed something terribly wrong. my zucchini plants looked distressed. my first thought was that it was the anit fungal treatment that i gave it. but when i dug further to the base of the stems under the abyss of prickly leaves and vine, i found this:…

In a nutshell, the most useful gardening tool I have ever bought.
I'm a sucker for a gadget. I'm also a sucker for most of whatever my favourite kitcheny, gadgety store Lakeland sells. But this beauty, was a fantastic purchase. Like a lot of Londoners, I have very clay-ey soil. Not a problem. I used it all afternoon, weeding (cuts right through to the roots), making furrows for planting seeds, digging holes to plant some…Continue
