Maybe not the best photo, but this was creeping about whats left of the silverado sage out front. When I was watering I noticed it move, and it was enjoying this big water droplet and smoothed it across its buggy head like a cat cleaning its face with a paw. That's something I wish I had on viedo.
It's still wearing a bead of water.

pumpkin sprouts and new bed pics
Category: garden plans and adventures | Posted: Tue Aug 08, 2006 6:30 am
Ok, here are my little survivors. We actually got rain today. It was so foreign I just stared out the window for a really long time.
Here is the beginning of my new bed at the back of the house. The stones are actually markers for two deceased furry friends who I could go on and on about. I thought this spot was a nice place to start and to make it special. I went and bought a couple of caladiums because I had near killed the bulbs I had started, they are the teensy ones in the front row. Theres a really pretty salvia in there too, that had the tiniest green on it. Yet another that barely made the heat. I hope they all fare better in the back.

thrifty pumpkin sprout
Category: garden plans and adventures | Posted: Mon Aug 07, 2006 5:59 am
My computer is finally back up today, I had changed some rooms around and hadnt gotten it set back up. Went to IKEA *kicks self*. How dare they make things they know I need! actually need! I had to get a tv table and a shelf. They had 'em even cheaper and nicer than places I would think would have such items. Um, yes so my problem with that place is that when you have the barest of furnishings and I'm a confessed thrift store furniture junkie, you can find stuff that looks great and can go with your thrifty finds. Woot!
OK, this is supposed to be gardening. I planted pumpkins, and hot diggity if two seedings didnt pop up this morning. I thought the few fall things planted had baked or boiled in the soil and these managed to come up. I've been watering carefully, I guess something lived! I'm not sure which kind of pumpkin it is, I dried seeds from last years jack-o-lantern fun. It was a big one though.
I also planted some caladiums in the back yard last week. I've begun a bed along the back wall of my house. I used posts that were originally part of the pole barn I live in. I think it's a good recycle.
