As you can imagine, it's been raining here lately, A LOT! The girls came Thursday, the day I thought I would write a post, and I had the camera outside taking pictures of them in the pool. I placed it on the table outside to do something else. The next day, when I wanted to take pictures of the girls again, I couldn't find my camera! It occurred to me that I had left it outside on the table. And it had rained ALL NIGHT AND ALL DAY! Remember Tropical Storm Andrea last week? Well, it came through here and dumped a lot of rain on us. Now we are experiencing sun and high temps with extreme humidity! Have you ever felt like you just had a hot shower after walking around outside doing hardly anything, and when you went inside, you got cold? That's the way it feels here! Anyway, the camera will not work, so I found my old camera and now I can take photos until the new one gets here! Yay for Amazon! Walmart had waterproof cameras but they were over $200! Now why would I pay that much for a camera? I can buy several of these for that price! And they do the same thing!
With all the rain, everything is growing and getting greener by the day! The garden seems to be doing good, if the squash bugs will leave the squash plants alone! That happens every year! Something eats the summer squash! I even plant them in different beds, but with the same result! The beans are outgrowing their stakes and are blooming! They have pretty purple flowers on them! Speaking of purple, the wisteria is blooming again! I just adore wisteria! Day lilies are in full bloom as well! Looks like the nectarine tree has produced lots of nectarines again this year! And, I've been getting red plums from the plum tree! They are delicious! The raspberries are producing a handful at a time and are delicious, too! Before long, the blackberries will be producing!
I hope everything is going good for you in your gardens! From what little I read now-a-days, from ya'll's blogs, it sounds like ya'll are doing pretty good! I'm trying not to sit at the computer too much now! From all the sitting over the last few months, I seemed to have gained weight! It doesn't take much for me to gain weight; that's why I exercise so much! I don't even over-eat! Maybe it's my thyroid? Anyway, I'm trying to take authority over it now before it gets worse! It crept up on me, so I'll keep ya'll informed as to how I do over the next few months. With vacation coming up, it will probably not be easy to work it off! We eat way too much when we go on vacation! Oh well, I'll get back on it when we return home!
Enjoy your week and thanks for stopping by! Blessings from Bama!
