Hey Melissa :) Just wanted to stop in and say "I'mmmm Baaaack!' LOL
I so missed you all! I've had TONS going on, some good - some ... well, doesn't matter) anywhooo I'm back into the fold so watch out! and we need to get that Garden Party rockin' again :) (I so loved our last one!)
Off to catch up on a years worth of posts I've missed.... Talk with ya again soon!
BTW I'm copying and pasting same message to Bonnie and Catherine LOL)
Hi Melissa, Love your pictures.. I noticed your are from San Angelo.. I just moved here last year. I've been working hard trying to get some type of landscape, which has been hard with the drought :( What garden club do you belong? Is there an active master gardeners group here?
Melissa, I really enjoyed all your new pictures... I had to go get a popcorn and coke though. Haha
Your flowers are all beautiful! You have so many and such a neat variety. Your greenhouse is so packed and poor hubby lost all walking space! Will you wait until spring to put anything in your new bed?
Hi Melissa. Thanks for the friend request. As for that flowers in my avatar, that's the bloom of a native tree that grows in my region of north Queensland. The tree is rather ugly and scraggly, but does have these fantastic blooms. Unfortunately the blooms only open in the late afternoon and bloom at night. By the next morning, the blooms have dropped off, so unless you know about this you would miss seeing them!
Thank you Bonnie and Vicky I am so glad you enjoyed my story, I went calling on "Charlie" this afternoon to let him know he has become a bit of a celebrity on Garden Share. To which he retorted " I don't know what your blabbering about now, I have never been on TV in my life and don't plan to" I told him "Its not TV its the internet, I told the story of how you and I became friends". He said "Oh so we are friends are we? I thought you were just my favorite irritation" After I stopped laughing Charlie added: "Now whats this you say? I 'm a dot.com now? What a gem he is. Vickie, you and I are practically neighbors, well if we compare the miles to Bonnie's place in Missouri that is! I live in Hazel Dell Washington (just a pinch north of Vancouver). I have a friend who lives in Kennewick, is that your city? I have not seen her for awhile, I love the area though, very different from here.
hi, melissa. don't have time to do another group, still have some cactus and seeds for you. been very busy getting stuff done. i haven't been on here at all for a while, now that the weather is livable outside. will get back on sometime soon, i hope.
"Thunderstorm has passed for now. But got to wait till new gardens dry out. I hope my pre-starts will do well once I put then in garden. No wild rabbit since I cleared weeds from new garden plots.
Friend gave me some runner beans but bad thing was…"
"I did pull up a box full of small carrots that were planted last fall and over wintered in the mini greenhouses. Purple ones to come soon. Guess the birds got all my strawberries as the bird netting wasn't all the way around the boxes. GRRRRRR!…"
"Got thunder coming and had lots of rain. So today relax. Got my 2 gardens almost ready to get veggies in and I hope they give me veggies for over Winter. Glad to hear from you both. Keep in touch both of you. Love hearing from you both. Let you know…"
