I can't believe I haven't been here for awhile. I've been really busy the past week. I am house-sitting and Cat Sitting 8 beautiful Cats-5 Siamese (3 Seal Point and 2 Blue Point & 3 outside kitties). These are my Step-kitties since I can't have Cats. The Jack Russells would not appreciate a Cat in the house much less on the property-he,he. So I get my fix with my friends Cats. I am watching them for 2 weeks. Along with a gazillion plants I have to water, Pool, and house. It's all good tho!!! The White Bowl I needed because you know who broke the original bowl and pitcher, so now it holds my big fern. And I finally found a Printers type box to hold my little stamps and seaglass and rocks and whatever.

Oh smack! Yesterday I went to the Local Nursery (Homestead Gardens) and used what little bit of (Myrtle Money) I had earned, only $27 big ones, it was a bad year of buying things, but it worked out for me. This was a whim purchase, but I've been needing a climber rose for my trellis. This fragrant pretty rose is called "White Dawn" and it grows 12' to 14'ft. So this should cover my trellis nicely. And I'm going to incorporate a 'Purple Clematis' to intertwine with the rose and maybe some morning glories. I think this will be pretty. Purple and White, Oh, I can just see it now. I know this isn't the best time to be buying plants with the extreme heat we have been getting but I will take care of this after I plant it!Here is my rose in bloom. They aren't big but they smell nice. The only thing I hate about Roses are the THORNS, man I hate those things. But I guess you can't be a gardener without experiencing the pain along with the beauty. I guess like "Beauty and the Beast" the thorns that is.

Evening Everyone. It's Hot, Hot, Hot and don't forget Humid. I walked outside and to my surprise this was waiting for me. My first Veggie Bounty. 3 Maters and 1 squash. My Veggie Garden hasn't done what I thought it would do this year, I don't have a clue and I feel like a failure!!! Oh Well, there's next year. Anyway there's enough for me to have a scrumptious Tomato Sandwich, YUM. That's all I crave in the summer. Is my first bite of my own tomatoes, melting in my mouth coating every taste bud with their tomato goodness. Yes, Dinner is soon :)

Yeah another addition to the Deer Population in our Woods. Isn't she/he beautiful. As you can see Mama Deer was trying to protect her from that young male lurking in the woods. And believe me he wasn't in the woods just lurking for long, he had a mission (that part was censored). Poor Mama. Wish she could've just kicked him!!!! Usually every year one of the Deer at the bottom have twins, but I haven't seen any twins this year. This is my first sighting of a baby...Too darn cute. We have alot of Deer on the property but they know we don't bother them as long as they stay down in the lower forty. Plus the dogs keep them down in the wooded area.

My little garden area on this side of the yard is coming together nicely. I still have alot of work . The more I walk around this area the more the ideas pop into my head. Like MORE PLANTS. And maybe even a small knot garden, who knows what I'll be doing next. I do have alot of time on my hands now that I'm retired. But these things are what I was thinking about having while I was working all those years. And now I can finally put the plan to work. It might take a while and alot of hard work, but I'll do it "One Plant at a Time, One plan at a Time"
I am a collector of all things but I have been collecting plant seeds for only a year now. That's why I wanted a little greenhouse so I could get a jump on this issue (another day another story). Let me know what you think?
