    Re gardening gloves. It's probably a good idea to wear them when working in dirt. Especially for me. I have to fingerstick 5 times a day so there are always little punctures on my fingertips.

    Quote Blue 501: Today was nice here too. I pollinated some of the last of the daylilies. Lots of pinks today, nearly all of them with "nice edges"(hooks, globules, metallic glitter). It was finally cool enough for me to make some labels so I can tell what they are when the pods are ripe. One of the pinks is really pale & delicate looking with a darker pink eye zone. Reminds me of an old fashioned embroidered baptiste handkerchief. I bred every tetraploid today with Darla Anita (a pink & gold with an extreme edge). I have not made anything different enough to market yet but most of my "babies" are very pretty!
    Today is my husband's "second" birthday. TPTB misread his passport & made him a month younger. I forgot his first one so I am going to take him out to dinner. B/c of the difference in calendars (Gregorian vs Julian?) he also gets two Christmases,New Years, & Easters.





    Hi Blue! Wow your hubby is sure a lucky fellow! Two of everything nice! I hope his birthday was very happy.Your flowers always sound so lovely.Wish we could do pictures on here,I would love to see them.Hope you have a wonderful blessed day.Talk later my friend!


    Hi Pixie. I hope you had time for a blueberry muffin & a cup of coffee. I had the house to myself much of the morning. My daughter is pet sitting this week and she has the baby with her. When he is home I spend most of my time grabbing the remotes & keyboards. He is 17 months now & is pretty fast & wants to click every button & take things apart. He is either going to be a scientist or a demolition expert (lol). He is getting very leggy & toothy now & kind of cranky with molars & canines coming thru at the same time. Still so pretty though & charming & sweet when his mouth is not bothering him. My daughter gives him a little pediatric ibuprofen 2 or 3 times a day & it seems to help.
    The daylilies are winding down now but a yellow UFO that is about 12 inches across is blooming out front. It's called "Look Here Mary!" & I will never forget it b/c when I set it out, it turned out there was a snake in the dirt it was in. I had been on the road for over an hour with a snake in the back seat. (Yikes) I am going to go feed it & pollinate it before the pollen all drys up.
    Have a nice afternoon everyone.


    OMG Blue 501!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I can't imagine it!!!!!!! How big/ long was that darn critter and what colors???????

    I have been tryin to decide what to plant in my outdoors planters around my front doors and patios. I've been concerned about the plants attracting wildlife or insects; Never would I have considered a reptile may burrow its way inside a potted plant !!!!!!!!

    So glad you are OK and none of the grandchildren were in the back seat....count our Blessings.


    I think it was just a black snake.I only saw the tail disappearing as I set the clump of dirt with the daylily into the hole (with my bare hands).There is a time I would have freaked out but when my daughter was little, I had to pretend not to be afraid of snakes to keep her from teasing me with them. I did that by touching a couple of them (safely held by someone else. One was a red & black corn snake. Very pretty & behaved quite well). Nevertheless, I would have gone crazy if that snake (whatever he was) had crawled out of the dirt while I was speeding along the beltline and into my lap. My mother was dressing fish one time at a table in the back yard & thought a kitten was playing around her ankles & it was a Copperhead. She stayed very still until it crawled off her.





    OMG! Blue your mom is a very strong woman.But thank the Lord she had the presence and strength to do that as copperheads are extremly poisonous.


    I have never heard of anyone being killed by a Copperhead but they can make you really sick. One of my little cousins was bitten on the face & a finger (I think she picked it up) and ended up losing the finger. And yes, my Mama was tough. She was like a pioneer woman. She is 98 now and still hanging in there. She was born in 1915 & her mother was born in 1895 & sometimes got chased up a tree by long horned cattle when walking to school.





    You are so right about copperheads,Blue.They are the least toxic of our poisonous snakes but there have been deaths form their bites.This month in the state of Missouri a man died from a copperhead bite. There have been 3 deaths since the 1960's recorded in the state so that's not many. Most bites were caused by the victim picking up the snake and being bit and then dying from a heart attack or delaying medical treatment. And in some cases trying to cut the poison out.


    Your mom sounds like an amazing woman.I would love to sit and hear some of her stories about her early days.I just love all senior people and have the higest regard for them and what they have seen and experienced in all of their many years.May God bless her and keep her healthy and strong.

    Quote Blue 501: My daughter always liked fairies too. Even for her page in the highschool yearbook we had a fairy theme. And that poem about a Faerie Queen. (Who was that? Spencer?)





    Yes it is Blue,Edmund Spenser.I love that poem and have a framed print hanging in my guest bedroom.


    I am intrigued by the old style english (ie: dirtie; buetie; queene; flowre; dauncing etc)used in this poem. 100 years from now, I wonder how people will view our "120 character" abbreviated online text/tweets or emails/posts etc...

    Thanks for sharing PixiePower!!


    I love English history and literature too. I have just a touch of an old English accent from growing up on the Carolina coast. Most people do not notice but a linguist once nailed me from across a room when he heard me talking. My father had it much stronger. "My boat" was "me bote". I hate to see it die away. The accent is from English settlers of the 1600's. We still have some words found nowhere else in the US too, like "mommick" for ?mess up".





    Oh I love that accent! Sounds so romantic!!

    Good morning! Aren't they a mess? The idea of a romance between Cassie (I mean Mariah) & Nick is just so gross!
    I have Brazilian Minas Gerais coffee, Russian Caravan tea, & fresh peaches from the trees out back. Orange & cranberry scones for the sweet cravings. Have a good day!

    Hi Kritters!!!

    It's been awhile since I've visited, and I'm so happy to see lots of visitors to our clubhouse. Welcome Pixie and Teri!!!
    It looks like Blue has made everyone welcome and has cleaned up a bit to get the dust off everything. Before I leave, I'll feed the kitties.

    It's a beautiful day here at the beach, warm and sunny and little to no wind, which is unusual. This morning, the ocean looked like glass. The water is getting to it's warmest here, low 70s.

    I went to my local Farmer's Market this morning, and got tons of fresh native veggies ( I have a small veggie garden, but haven't had much of a yield yet)
    The market is great with all kinds of produce, fish, baked goods, and herbs. There are also soaps, salsas, oils, etc. It's fun to talk to all the vendors and folks strolling about.

    Going to make something good for supper for the Captain.....not sure yet, but I'll use the fish I got today. (Fresh caught sole)

    Happy Day Everyone.

    I spotted something wonderful today. Morels! Growing in someone's mulched side yard. I didn't stop b/c I had a load of perishable groceries in the car. Would it be too terrible to knock on the door, introduce myself, and say "Pardon me M'am, are you going to eat those?" (If anyone does not know, Morels are about the best tasting mushroom in the world. It is the one with a cone-shaped cap with ruffles. I have never been lucky enough to find any growing but I know one when I see one!
