Re: Weekend

It's business; selling news. I usually go to NOAA to look at their
predictions and models, which show the variants. Our weather is good;
nice and cool after those blistering days but no rain so we are cool and

One of my summer projects is to repot all my inside plants, including
those I bring in during winter. 16 down and 4 more to go. Of course
these last four are pretty big; two in half barrels. Although all have
been in desperate need, I had several blooming succulents. But I am
determined to get this completed this week. Also, pruned out some thick
branches that were shading out beds below. Looks so much better; plenty
of leaf and a more open canopy.

Got my book club to read Botany of Desire so am refreshing due to a presentation on Wednesday. 

Loving these cooler nights and days. 

I also will chip in for whatever is decided for Bonnie. One thought, is
there a garden in her home town where we could contribute in her name?

Subject: [CHAT] Weekend 

Here's hoping each of you is having good holiday weekend to wrap up 
this miserable summer. The media hyped hurricane Earl to the max - 
I'm sure they were capitalizing on its being the anniversary of Katrina - 
though it never looked to me as if it would amount to much, and of 
course it didn't. After a long life of hurricane watching I can usually 
predict them about as well as the meteorologists. 

Weather here today is gorgeous - brilliant sunshine, temps in the 
low 70s, but since we did not get a drop of rain from Earl, and 
haven't had a drop since the downpour two weeks ago, it's terribly 
dry again. Add to that the biggest crop of ragweed I can ever remember 
seeing, and you get a pretty bad hayfever situation. After only a few 
minutes out watering some containers, my nose and eyes are streaming. 
Oh well. 

Whenever someone decides what to do in memory of Bonnie, be 
assured that I will be glad to contribute.
