  • I feel like a young kid again, playing in the rain. There were some have-to-do things earlier and there was no sense trying to carry an umbrella, especially when it took both hands.

    Now we've noticed our leak around the chimney has returned so I get to go out again! Well, I might as well see some benefit to going out to get soaked.

    At least there is no lighting and thunder, at the moment. I have an aversion to being on our roof when I hear rumblings.

  • It almost looks like an orchid flower...absolutly beautiful...your blessed to see such wonder...we really got drenched by the rain yesterday here on Blue Ribbon, the curbs looked like a river a couple times...between the soaked yard and the bombs bursting in air both the cat and dog had a rough evening...but I slept like a baby while they cowered..today is a vary special day and yet kinda sad because as of midnite I am now 52.

  • Well, Happy Birthday chefgrape! Not bad to have a whole Nation celebrating your birthday.

    That bean flower does look like an orchid. I probably could have passed it off as one with just the close-up.

    If you get a chance, come by our garden club meeting tonight. I would love to meet you in person.

  • All we look for is you.

    We swapped a few seeds last night, brought a sample Japanese cucumber but mainly just conversation and questions.

    A new attendee showed up who lives just a few blocks away and she seemed to enjoy her visit.

    Regarding the questions, we usually have a computer with internet connection and we look for answers together. Often to identify a mystery plant, but last night we covered salad spinners, some squash recipes and a few unique veggies.

    Folks come and go as they need to, so being there at a certain time is not too important,. nor having to leave early.

    We start at 7:00 and turning out the light depends on what we all have to do in life, our energy levels or sometimes when we arrive. Usually we break up around 8:30 +-
