They are changing it for the worse and not making it better. I have been on here since 2008 and have saw so many changes but this is the worst change that they had done. They are making it harder to get around this site.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

It's cooler here today as well - only 15C (59F) today after about 23 (73F) yesterday. Fortunately the forecast for my plant sale on Sat. is sunny with a temp of 21 which is nice. We haven't had any rain for over a week and none on the horizon until next Tues when we are supposed to get a light rain. I was turning over the dirt in my new garden this afternoon and by mistake caught the edge of one of the newly planted lilies The root ball came out as it if had just come out of the pot and the dirt in and around it was barely damp. I've been watering in a morning and then the evening the day later waiting a day and doing it in the morning again and so on so every other day. I can move topsoil a few inches after a rain and there is no sign it rained. We have great soil but it sure doesn't hold the water. I have to mulch, mulch, mulch. I need some new mulch for the new garden and to top up a lot of areas in my other beds.

I made a Fairy Garden this spring. It didn't turn out exactly as I had hoped but crafty things usually don't. But, I like it none the less. I've posted a couple of pics on my SparkPage. I had to take it in 2 halves to make it clear enough to see details.

LOOKS LIKE IT WILL BE COOL ENOUGH NOW TO FINISH THE MULCHING THIS WEEKEND---MUCH COOLER TODAY AND I AM LOVING IT. BUT HEAT IS COMING BACK NEXT WEEK SO I NEED TO GET MY SON OVER HERE TO PUT THE UNITS IN THE WINDOWS FOR NEXT WEEK.

It is a hot day here too, 90's and humid but it is suppose to be in the 80's tomorrow and the rest of the week.

Lemon juice has a cutting agent in it that cuts grease type products and that sound like what it was on that mulch. If all else fails go to and auto store and get that stuff that cuts grease and is a hand cleaner and it is not harsh like bleach is.

Lecates - I had a similar problem with my brown mulch. The only thing that got it off of me was to soak my fingers in bleach but a lot of people can't take that.

I've got my planters, a bag planter, and window boxes done. My husband has been working at getting a new garden ready. We've converted most of our front boulevard into a lily bed. It looks awfully sparse when first planted but it will eventually fill in. I was thinking of maybe adding a few annuals to fill in right now but I'm not sure. It's been so nice to work outside and the weather has been nice and warm. We could use a bit of rain though. Our soil is quite sandy and the water from watering and/or rain just disappears quickly. I could water every day and have been watering this year already. None of my neighbours do but they don't spend as much time gardening as I do either, lol. My plant sale is Sat and I've got all the pots lined up in like groups under our car port. I've had them out in the sun to bring them along but they've done quite well and are ready for sale so a few days won't hurt out of the direct sun. Happy gardening everyone.

I USED GARDENING GLOVES TO PUT DOWN THE MULCH BUT THE BLACK CAME THRU THE GLOVES---COULD NOT GET IT ALL OFF MY NAILS, EVEN THOUGH I WASHED MY HAIR AND USED HEAD AND SHOULDERS, WHICH USUALLY REMOVES STAINS LIKE THAT. SO i HAD TO PAINT MY FINGERNAILS SO THEY WOULD NOT LOOK SO BAD TODAY. ANYONE HAVE ANY HINT ON WHAT TO DO TO PREVENT/REMOVE THE STAINS FOR THE NEXT TIME AS i STILL HAVE LOTS MORE MULCHING TO DO?

NANCY, I DID TAKE IT EASY AND WORE MY BRACE WHILE DOING A BIT MORE.
EVELYN, THAT DOES SOUND PRETTY--MY APRICOT ROSE BUSH IS BLOOMING LIKE CRAZY RIGHT NOW---THE BUDS START OUT BRIGHT ORANGE AND THE ROSES TURN TO A LIGHT APRICOT ORANGE ONCE THEY OPEN.
I FINALLY GOT ALL THE VINCA PLANTED YESTERDAY---ENDED UP DOING THE CIRCLE BED IN THEM TOO AS I COULD NOT FIND ANY ORANGE FLOWERS THAT WOULD WORK THERE. DID BUY SOME MORE FLOWERS YESTERDAY FOR SOME PLANTERS I HAVE---TODAY THAT IS WHAT I WILL WORK ON AND HOPE TO GET ANOTHER BAG OF MULCH SPREAD TOO---BUT HAVE TO DO IT EARLY AS THE TEMPS WILL CLIMB INTO THE UPPER 80'S HERE TODAY---THE PAST 2 DAYS HAVE BEEN LOVELY. MAKING DH USE THE GRILL TODAY----LOOKING FORWARD TO A NICE BURGER FOR DINNER TONIGHT.
HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY! THANKS TO ALL THE VETERANS WHO RISKED THEIR LIVES TO KEEP US SAFE AND TO HELP THE REST OF THE WORLD. emoticon

LOVE SNOWBALL BUSHES---THEY ARE SO PRETTY.
I DID GET ONE AND HALF FLOWER BEDS MULCHED YESTERDAY---TOOK 2 BAGS JUST FOR THAT----AND DID WALK IN THE PARK BUT i TRIPPED AND TWISTED MY KNEE----SO DOING THE MULCHING DID NOT HELP IT AFTERWARDS---AND I WALKED TO LOCAL FARMER'S MARKET AND BOUGHT A FEW MORE PLANTS---SOME ZINNIA AND A GRAPE TOMATO PLANT AND A CUCUMBER PLANT-----SO MY KNEE DID GIVE ME FITS FOR DOING ALL THOSE THINGS--BUT I WORE MY BRACE TO BED AND THAT REALLY HELPED.
HOPE EVERYONE HAS A DELIGHTFUL DAY---HOPING TO GO FIND SOME ORANGE FLOWERS FOR MY CIRCLE BED---I ALWAYS PLANT ORANGE THERE.

THEY CUT MY MEDS IN HALF SO I'VE BEEN ABLE TO DO A LITTLE AROUND THE PLACE. YESTERDAY I GOT THE ORCHARD & HALF THE YARD MOWED & PLAN ON FINISHING THE REST OF THE YARD THIS MORNING. PLUS WE NEED TO PICK THE STRAWBERRIES. OUR IRIS STLL GREAT. EXCEPT THE COLORS CHANGED AND MY YELLOW LILAC CAME IN PURPLE! I ORDERED A YELLOW MAGNOLIA. I HOPE IT'LL COME IN YELLOW. SUPPOSED TO STORM THE NEXT FEW DAY BUT WE HAVEN'T GOTTEN ANY & THE HUMPIDITY IS LOW SO THAT HELPS.

TRAFFIC IS TERRIBLE & THERE'S SO MANY WRECKS. WE'RE CLOSE TO 44 & CAN HEAR THE SIRENS ALL THE TIME.

HOPE EVERYONE HAS A GOOD & SAFE WEEKEND!

Sugaro... funny how cats are eh? I had 2 that acted like they hated each other and would actually lay in wait to surprise the other. When the tiny one died, the older meaner one pined for her something awful. You both need time.

I got a lot of my gardens done in the last couple of days - chest cold or no. I just hope it wasn't too early for the weather we've been having. This week I'll be cleaning up the plants I have ready for my annual perennial sale on the 31st. I'll move them under the carport as well so when the sale is on, no matter the weather, we can go ahead. Last count I had 135.

We were fortunate that the hail storm missed us. I hope those that had it didn't suffer too much damage. Have a good weekend - long weekend in the States I believe. Ours here in Canada was last weekend.

I KNOW I MADE THE RIGHT DECISION. TO ME, QUALITY OF LIFE MATTERS. AND SHE WAS AVE ANY. EVEN HEMI, MY ONLY CAT LEFT, MISSES SCRAPPY EVEN THOUGH THEY REALLY DIDN'T GET ALONG. HEMI HAS BEEN EXTREMELY VOCAL & CLINGY.

I HAVE BEEN ENJOYING THE SEASONABLE WEATHER. EVEN THE RAIN. TOO MUCH OF THE COUNTRY HAS BEEN IN A DROUGHT & IS IN NEED OF ALL THE PRECIPITATION IT CAN GET. CAN DO WITHOUT THE TORNADOES & HUGE HAIL THOUGH.

Kim - I am so sorry to hear about Scrappy. I know when we lost our Chloe last Dec. it was like losing a child. Like you, I blamed myself - if we'd been home we would have known right away to get her to the Vets but of course, it would have been too late. Her time had come. We'd seen it happening slowly but it is so hard to accept that we didn't/couldn't when we should have/could have done more. Time will help heal and you will be more able to remember more of the good times you had together. I'm glad your family was there for you.

KIM, IT IS VERY PROBABLE THAT THIS WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN CAUGHT ALL THAT MUCH EARLIER AND WOULD PROBABLY HAVE BEEN TOO EXPENSIVE TO TREAT---YOU GAVE HER A GOOD LIFE AND LOVED HER AND SHE LOVED YOU---OF COURSE YOU WOULD BE UPSET AND MISS HER DREADFULLY---YOUR ISSUES HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH HER GETTING SICK---THINGS HAPPEN A LOT QUICKER IN CATS THAN THEY DO IN HUMANS. EVENTUALLY YOU CAN MOVE ON---AND YOU GAVE HER A LOVELY PLACE TO REST. WE BURIED OUR PRETTY GIRL AND PUT A ROSE BUSH OVER HER AND THEY ALWAYS REMIND ME OF HOW PRETTY SHE WAS.

IT'S BEEN A ROUGH WEEK FOR ME. LAST WEDNESDAY I HAD TO PUT SCRAPPY (MY MAINE COON MIX CAT) TO SLEEP. SHE WAS 13 YRS OLD & I HAD HER SINCE SHE COULD FIT IN THE PALM OF MY HAND. SHE HADN'T BEEN ACTING HERSELF FOR A WHILE & HAD A WEIRD COUGH (NOT THE SAME AS HAIRBALL). SHE WAS ALSO LONG OVER DUE FOR GROOMING, BUT HER SHOTS NEEDED UPDATING. I WAS TOLD THAT SINCE SHE WASN'T FEELING WELL, THAT THEY WEREN'T LIKELY TO GIVE HER SHOTS. SO, I MADE AN APPT 2 MONDAYS AGO. SHE HAD LOST ABOUT 2 POUNDS OVER A FEW MONTHS. THE VET WAS CONCERNED & WANTED TO DO A SERIES OF BLOOD WORK & X-RAYS. I ONLY HAD ENOUGH MONEY TO DO 2 OF THE BLOOD WORK & THE OFFICE VISIT, WHICH ALSO WIPED ME OUT, MONEY WISE, FOR THE REST OF THE MONTH. I WAS TOTALLY UPSET. MY FOLKS CAME OUT TO HELP CALM ME DOWN & HELP FINANCIALLY (OF WHICH MADE ME FEEL WORSE). MADE ANOTHER APPT FOR 2 WEDNESDAY'S AGO TO DROP HER OFF TO FINISH THE BLOOD WORK & GET XRAYS. LATER THAT DAY AS I WAS LEAVING AN APPT OF MY OWN, I CHECKED MY PHONE & SAW THAT THE VETS HAD CALLED & LEFT A MESSAGE. IN THE MESSAGE HE TOLD ME THAT SHE LOST EVEN MORE WEIGHT IN JUST 2 DAYS (I SAW THAT SHE HAD STOPPED EATING), AND THAT ALTHOUGH HER BLOOD WORK FOR THE MOST PART LOOKED GOOD, HER LUNGS WERE FILLED WITH TUMORS. A TYPE THAT WOULD HAVE STARTED FROM SOMEWHERE ELSE. I FINALLY GOT TO MY CAR & ABSOLUTELY LOT IT. WHY DIDN'T I DO SOMETHING SOONER. WHY DIDN'T I TAKE BETTER CARE OF HER. I DON'T KNOW IF I CAN HANDLE THIS. SHE WAS THE ONE WHO WOULD COME RUNNING WHEN I CRIED, KNEW WHEN I WAS UPSET. IF I HADN'T BEEN SO WRAPPED UP IN MYSELF THIS WOULDN'T BE HAPPENING. I CALLED THE VET BACK & TOLD HIM THAT I DIDN'T SEE THE POINT OF PUTTING HER ON SOME MEDICATION TO ENCOURAGE EATING , WHEN IT WAS CLEAR SHE DIDN'T HAVE A GOOD QUALITY OF LIFE. THAT I WOULD BE IN LATER TO BE WITH HER WHEN THEY PUT HER TO SLEEP. THEN PROCEEDED TO CALL MY FOLKS IN HYSTERICS. BEGGING THEM TO COME OUT, THAT I NEED TO DO THIS FOR SCRAPPY & THAT I NEEDED THEIR SUPPORT. I KEPT APOLOGIZING TO SCRAPPY OVER & OVER. I SPENT THE NEXT FEW DAYS WITH MY FOLKS. WHERE THEIR PROPERTY BUTTS UP TO A BEAUTIFUL WOODED AREA. MY DAD & I BURIED SCRAPPY IN THE HOSTA FLOWER BED, SURROUNDED BY BEAUTIFULLY SINGING BIRDS. SHE LOVED TO WATCH BIRDS WITH ME OUT THE WINDOW. NOW IT'S JUST ME & HEMI, TRYING TO MOVE ON.....
