Today in the Yard

Today, with the help of two men, the plants came inside.  It took  us over an 
hour to figure out how to fit them all in my small enclosed  porch.  I cannot 
believe how much they grown over the summer.  Not to  mention the fact that I 
have acquired new tropicals and divided others.  I  will have to crawl on my 
belly like a snake to water them and clean the cats'  litter pans so that is 
going to be fun -- NOT.  I gathered a lot of pine  cones to fill the pots and, 
hopefully, act as a deterrent to the cats.   Jim, the little shrubs you gave 
me are getting big, but I still have them in one  pot together.  Don't know 
what I'll do next year, but I'll just worry about  that then.  I would have 
seriously cut back the brugmansias, but they are  all loaded with buds and I just 
didn't have the heart.  I still have one  jasmine in a hanging basket that must 
be brought in and transplanted to a  regular pot.  It is rainy and muggy 
here, and my arthritis is screaming my  age right now.  It's not supposed to turn 
colder until later this week, but  I couldn't wait any longer to tackle this 
always dreaded job as I am  working at the polls tomorrow from 6:30 a.m.
