Happy Bloom Day


Pride of Barbados

Happy Bloom Day. Technically, I'm not there to see my blooms, but I did take pictures a day early so I could post them. Tomorrow I'll send some interesting things from central Indiana, where it was 75 degrees when we got off the plan yesterday! Amazing. But they have been as dry as we have been wet, and the crops are not bearing up well at all. The corn is very dry and some of it looks half-dead. It's going to be a bad year for farmers around here. And the horses have to be fed hay because there isn't much else for them in the fields. A sad state of affairs. I wish we could have sent them a little of our rain, but I guess that's just now how it works.

Well, that 75 degrees sounds lovely. I just returned from Tulsa, where it was over 100 every day. Yuck!

Enjoy your visit!

Hello Diana,

Sometimes I just wish for 75ยบ before midnight here! Your friend may not need to water your garden today. Erin came ashore and in NW Austin it's 9 AM and already raining.

Your Esperanza and Pride of Barbados and Black Elephant ears all look great in your garden, [I've killed a few Esperanza] and your Plumeria is lovely. I have a yellow Plumeria, too but it's not open yet.

Enjoy your visit to Indiana - if you run into Carol from May Dreams Garden, say hello for us in Austin!
