    Hello everyone, it seems i can start a discussion, but can't reply to anyone. What's the deal? So it looks like if i want to comment i have to start a new thread.

    Our weather has taken a turn for the better. today its nice out and not as humid. I bought more plants yesterday, for 75% off of perennials i couldn't let that go by. I spent this morning getting them in the ground and then went to town where i found azeala bushes marked down to $1.79, another couldn't pass up deal. so now i am about to head outside and find a place for them. I have to stop this, i'm running out of space!!

    Hope everyone is enjoying is having a good week..take care..phyllis

    Hi Phyllis--Weird that you can't comment on the threads already here? No big deal, though, as long as you can start another one. It must be frustrating for you.

    I'm looking forward to getting your weather. It's been so hot and humid here I don't feel like doing anything. My grandson can't understand that I say it's too hot to go to the beach!

    Sounds like you got some good buys on your plants. I need to get some and will as soon as this weather cools down a bit. I'd love to find azalea bushes for $1.79!

    Have a good week.

    Hi Phyllis and Lois,
    We had an absolutely gorgeous day today. Finally a day in the 70;s with extremely low humidity. I love it. They say we are going to have nice weather until Sunday when it was heat up again with humdity UGH.

    So Phyllis - that's weird about not being able to reply to what is already posted. I don't pretend to understand how this all works.

    I'm going to clean for my father tomorrow. It has been way too long since I was able to. I hope I can get everything done I want to.

    Have a great Thursday.

    Good evening to everyone!

    I think we get on the board when we can and have to do what we can. Good to hear from everyone.... You're helping the soil with all those plants Phyllis. You must have a beautiful showcase when they all are growing! Maybe we'll see some pics on facebook? I see some of my periwinkles got left when the rest froze over the winter. I'm trying to put them all in one place! Some are in other plant's pots! Our weather is getting better everyday. The rain is less but the grass still grows.

    Everyone having cookouts this weekend? I got invited to a football game Saturday and a cook out on Sunday. Maybe this time it won't rain and we'll get in the pool! lol

    Have a good weekend and be safe, Linda
