    I was wondering around the yard this morning, thiking about things. Ive been doing that alot in the last few days. My gardens and plants are my passion so this is pretty hard to take in.

    Recently Ive been neglecting them...ALOT!At one point even was thinking of who I could send my plants too that I know would care for them. :'(

    And as I wondered around something caught my eye...well several things. As I was looking at the many different surprises my plants have given me this morn, Im am NOT giving up gardening! I love it, Im good at it and my plants love me!!

    Heres some of my surprises this morning around my yard.

    My dwark cannas are in bloom again!! I didnt even know they were getting ready too!
    The light pink one

    A BUD ON MY "GREEN" RESCUED ROSE!!! :eek: :eek: And to think that just last week, I thought it would die!!

    And my biggest surprise of all.....my lemon tree (the one I thought would just die off) is in BLOOM!!!!!:D :D

    And it seemed that Mother Nature knew my thoughts and feels cuz this little guy landed on my Passion Vine right next to me and let me take several pics of him and get pretty close to it before it finally flew away.

    I would miss all this if I gave up gardening! Nothing makes you feel more rewared than when your gardens surprise for a job well done.

    Pinkie when you mentioned in your blog that you were considering giving up gardening I was saddened because that would mean that you would maybe not feel as at home here as you are now. So to read this thread and to see that you NOT GIVING UP I'm doing a happy dance :sete_056:

    Don't let anything keep you away from it or away from us here :smt023 I know you can do it!

    You can't give up something that gives you so much joy. Your butterfly is a gulf fritillary. He's laying eggs near the tips of your passion vines. See if you can find some. Passion vines are their exclusive larval food plant. 8)

    Glendann bless her heart told me about something her friend had told her. Theres something called Moisture Proofing. Its a over the counter spray that you spray on and it creates a barrier on your skin that blocks contact of sweat from the skin!!! :eek:

    I cant find it here but I have my mom in North Fl looking, my best freind in Southern TX looking, a freind in CA looking, my grandmother in IN looking, another friend in NY looking and a aunt in NH looking, sister in law in CO looking, hubbys uncle in WY looking , hubbys grandmother in NV looking , a aunt of his in Southern FL looking, and a ex boyfriend in WI looking....I just called or emailed everyone last night about it and I have yet to hear back from anyone if they found it or not.

    LOL I WILL find it!!!! That would be a god sent!!
