My computer went down a long time ago. I am now using my daughter's computer and fast internet. This summer was at first a slow growing period, but toward the end of July, after our monsoon, things took off! Then I had all kinds of blooming plants. My moonflowers waited til September to really bloom in the cooler weather. Same with the cosmos. The snapdragons, however, bloomed all summer. I really was surprised when a bel pepper plant sprouted up in one of my containers.
So, I have been daydreaming about next spring already. Planning more surprises for my back yard garden. Also, I made a stepping stone, and plan to do that this winter for a pastime. Surprisingly, I like working with cement and plaster.
