Oh, I understand Dickens. I've been planning one for a long while. Last one was in 92. I was down sick once for a while and was off from work, but I don't count that as a vacation.

Hi Everyone! It's Wednesday afternoon.....the slide into the weekend will gather momentum now!

It is so pretty here today. I'm loving our sunshine. And all the little baby green tomatoes stretched and said, Wheee!

Ok. I exaggerated. I'm not ever sure if the tomato plants have bloomed yet. But you have to admit, it was a cute thought, tiny baby tomatoes soaking in the sunshine. Right?

Yes, it was very cute especially knowing plants have feelings. I watched a show on MythBusters where they experimented using exact same plants, soil and conditions with the exception of human interaction. They tried everything from at first sweet talking and then yelling and moved into using music. I would never believed what music actually made a difference and caused the plants to grow faster. Those little buggers like gothic music. It caused them to take off like no amount of sweet talking could do.
Other experimenters have hooked up sensors on plants and then clipped off pieces. The plant would register the pain and would move the needle that they said was a scream. Every time I mowed the lawn after that, I could imagine all of the blades of grass screaming in pain. I know, I know. I need a life. lol
Good night everyone.

Good afternoon EB, Doll, and all other Whitley City posters!

I think Tennessee has shifted down and become part of the Rain Forest! It has rained steadily all day, mostly a fine mist falling. Everything is drippy wet, and oh so lush and green. And if it's this pretty in West Tennessee, I can imagine how beautiful it is in the hilly areas of Kentucky!

I hope everyone has had a nice day. This weather makes me sleepy.

Poor Dickens. We too have had a terrible spring. I'm afraid that now it will turn blistering hot and prevent us from enjoying the summer.
However, today is nice and I'm going to enjoy it even while I'm working. Everyone be blessed.

Hi EB. I've been outside piddling around. It's not raining right now but it's so humid out there. It feels nice to be back in the cool house.

I cleaned out the bird baths. The one in the back yard is the hardest to do because the bowl is larger and heavier. I have to be careful in tipping it over...just far enough to let the dirty water spill out but not too far where I could lose my grip. And I have to unwind the hose and drag it across the yard, then wind it back onto its reel. Showeee, the birdbath was dirty! No wonder I've seen such dirty little birds dragging around! Well, it's as clean now as my tipping and fresh water could make it.

As much rain as we've got lately, you'd think I wouldn't have to water any flowers but the ones in pots dry up quickly. I added some fertilizer to their water today too.

Blessings back you....don't work too hard!

Ah Cletus, what a lovely word picture of the happy mountain life!

Last autumn a friend gave me a cutting of her clematis vine, as a gift. I was so proud of it and planted it in the back yard at the base of the shepherd's hook where I hang baskets of flowers. That vine thrived and this spring it really took off and I was happily awaiting its blooms....when my friend told me she had mistakenly dug up a wild honeysuckle vine instead of the clematis. Their leaves are very similar. Oh my goodness! I love honeysuckles growing along a country road but didn't want it in my yard. They take over too quickly. So last week I pulled that honeysuckle up. Goodness, I was surprised at how sturdy and how deep its roots had grown. It took me an hour of good pulling and digging to finally get it up!

Honeysuckle vines can be made into pretty wreaths and baskets. Have you ever tried your hand at that?

I knew a lady from Monticello, Ky that would take her whole clan out to harvest vines and then she would make all kinds of stuff. She had several stores in Ohio that she took orders from and did that as a full time job. She had set this up even before the internet. A real little enterpriser she was.

I remember a long time ago my dad telling me that some aunt or cousin of his could make the prettiest little cups and saucers out of dry pine needles. He said she plaited them, then fashioned them into different shapes. I can't tell you how many times I've tried and I haven't got anything worth seeing yet. Maybe if I had a pattern.

But I did make wild grapevine wreaths one autumn about 15 years ago. I made 3 to give as Christmas gifts and I kept one for myself. Every Christmas it hangs on my wall....it still looks just as pretty but one of these years I might update the ornaments I tied on it.

Oh, Cledus, your little mountain home sounds just perfect! I bet those fresh country eggs fry up mighty tasty.

My porch is bare compared to yours. There are 4 flower pots on the front porch and 3 on the side. The 3 are still empty because I haven't got around to buying flowers for them yet. We've had such a rainy, chilly spring.

Good afternoon, EB. I hope you're having a good day.

I'm sitting in front of a fan, staying rather cool, while an a/c serviceman works on my central unit. It stopped blowing out cool air on Friday, just before Memorial Day Weekend, and I've passed some very hot days here! Fans don't help much when it gets muggy hot here in Tennessee. I'm hoping all the unit needs is a good cleaning and fresh coolant added....I'll know soon.
