    Why do the "good" neighbors always move away & the crappy neighbors never leave? The people across the street are kind of horrible people but not really bad neighbors like yours. They're just kinda angry & the kind of people that won't even wave when they drive past you. We've watched their roof shingles blow off in storms, seen a very large black snake on their roof crawl into their attic vents, & when they had about a dozen chickens my aunt (who is their next door neighbor) watched a hawk...

    We just drove back from TX, through OK and MO with some pretty nasty weather all around us. We've had some hard straight-line winds at home, too, but what saved us from tornadoes is that it just didn't get warm enough to have the contrasting temps. I hate to complain about our weather when they're still getting tornadoes south of us! One tree broken, and one leaning pretty hard up by our driveway The broken one is a mountain ash (rowan). There were huge numbers of buds, almost ready for...

    It's mostly cloudy, but not bad here today. However, I can't set foot in the garden or I'll sink in up to my ankles. Things are very slow to come up, and I'm not yet sure what will and what won't need to be replanted. I tried three Wyatt's Wonder seeds. I put one in the ground with a cut-off milk jug over it to hold the heat in. No sign of germination. I let one germinate indoors, and then planted the sprouted seed out (with milk jug mini-greenhouse" over it). Nothing has shown up...

    I really feel like I need more single-click response options than just "thanks" and "like". I like the safe planting, but not the storms. They did some damage in my yard, too.

    Kdestra-- I'd look at treehoppers. They are legion, and some have pretty specific ranges, but that's where I'd start-- similar to this: https://bugguide.net/node/view/10205 I'll add another: https://www.flickr.com/photos/pcoin/4007677401 The color will vary somewhat from one individual (or one location) to another.

    Freddie is already in there with Queen when they were inducted in 2001 so I think he could wait. His solo stuff was good but he only put out one real solo album, Mr. Bad Guy, & then his only other album outside of Queen was with Montserrat Caballe so technically he wasn't solo on that one. I've been a Queen for years now,even saw them live with Freddie in 1983, & even I don't see why he needs to go in solo when there's plenty of others that should be there instead. I'd love to see Boston,...

    Sorry wickedwillingwench, I know what you're going through. My husband got what they kept calling a "good" cancer. Which used to just make me wanna slap 'em all because there's really no such thing. He had **bigwordsrecitedfrommemory** nodular sclerosing Hodgkins lymphoma, stage 2B about 12 years ago. He's fine now but going through chemo was awful. He didn't have to do radiation for reasons too long to go into here but it was a very long year going to Georgetown for chemo & then up to...

    I used to watch him on PBS in the 80s, long before it was a cool thing to do & just found him fascinating with his "happy little trees" & that huge Afro. I couldn't get over how he could create an entire landscape painting in 30 minutes real time (more or less). Oddly enough he was in the military & was the guy that had to be mean to the recruits & yelled at you all the time, a Sergeant in..wait....the Air Force. He painted in his off time & said when he got out of the service he wouldn't...

    Col. Fryght, I think you put as much work into your pumpkin plants as I do into my entire garden! Kdestra-- I love the rescue patio set! I expect Green Man to join you for tea. :)

    Yeah, the costume enhancement is tempting, but I'm afraid the dog might make off with it ...so she could roll in it. (pew!) Love the garden helper, K.! Nice of you to re-home the wagon.

    Here's the type of rhythm instrument, gourd and Job's tears shekere, that I hope to make sometime, though I'm not growing that shape of gourd, and I'll probably choose some more natural-looking cording. (haha-- like this, only not like this.) https://www.niceshopus.com/content?c=shekere&id=7 I have no idea about the supplier-- not recommending nor denigrating, just using their picture and giving them the credit for it. While I was looking for a decent shot, I stumbled across another...

    Col- Yeah, yours is an entirely different routine for a different goal. There's no way on earth we observers could ever consider it lazy! I just try to do the best I can with the conditions I have. I know I'll never grow a respectable giant, but variety I can manage...generally. I'm not going to get cocky or anything! haha! I'm really hoping I can make a go of Wyatt's Wonder, even though I don't expect anything near what they give for possible maximum size. They say 110 to 120 days,...

    Wow, Mayor-- 40 pumpkin plants! Holy cow! (I'm thinking I might find room for 15 or so!) I went ahead and put one single pumpkin seed-- a Wyatt's Wonder -- in the garden, covering it with a milk jug. If/when it comes up, I'll take the covering off pretty quickly so it firms up enough to face the wind and sun. If it doesn't germinate (the ground really hasn't warmed up yet. We've had lows in the mid to high 30s in the last few days.) that's no big deal. I'll try again in another week...

    Thank You! -- Now I feel like I should have done a better job with the depth of focus instead of just snapping a general impression-- haha! At least the one with the bee was easier, because the beetles weren't piled up on the stamen. They were closer to the same plane.
    I do get what you mean, They're fascinating in a horrifying (to me, because of how destructive they are) sort of way.
