Hi Everyone, It is still so very hot in Florida, but early in the morning, it is coolish. I mean Really early, like 5:30 A.M. That is usually when the puppy wants to get up for her first walk of the day! But, cool or not, at 5:30 AM, I am in a hurry to get out the door and get it shut before some frog or lizard gets in the house! We have so many of those now, what with all the rain we've had and the humidity and the onslaught of bugs it brings. If I sound a bit bitter, well, I am! I am so tired of pestilence, that first thing this morning I was looking up on the kindle how to get rid of all the above!
And don't tell me that I should just look the other way, that lizards and frogs eat bugs and that is a good thing. NOT! Because after eating all those bugs, then what happens? Nature deposits your porches with a big mess, if you get my drift. So it is a battle all the way around. Oh, for cool weather!
The Zinnias are getting a bit old looking and other flowers are waning. I am anxious to plant my cabbages and will do so about the middle of the month, if it cools just a bit. In Fall, about all I plant are cabbages and broccoli, plus mums and marigolds.
