Got a bit over two inches of rain in the past week. Humidity has been over 90% daily. The mushrooms and assorted fungi are happily sprouting in the lawn on and on the wooden bench I've been meaning to re-finish for a few years now :) I have decided not to make a career of picking horses because so far I haven't done real well at picking plants according to what I think the coming summers weather will be. Most of the Xeric plants I have mail ordered are not very happy. Who knew Lewisville was going to do an imitation of a Louisiana bayou this year? Atleast the cosmos that re-seeded themselves from last year are happy. May well need a chainsaw to cut the spent stems come winter. I have learned that Texas gardening is not for control freaks. So se la vie; Let Go and Let Garden. (Some of you might get that joke). Have a Great Day!

Good Day

It is clear, sunny with just a little breeze to keep the skitters away. A great day to sit on the back deck and relax.

Hope everything goes as planned and you have a wonderful, care free, safe Sunday.

Take care

believe me I know all about "Let go let garden"
there is a trick to it, you want something that can tolerate drought, yet not turn to mush if it rains alot, on the morning side of the house the sun is cooler than the evening side of the house south side gets more sun than north side, I cheat a bit I drive around the neighbor hood and see what is doing well in the neighbor's yards and the do the same thing.
for me the saying "progress not perfection" helps, anyway I have had humming birds and butterflys this year can't ask for more than that if it is a weed and it still has a pretty bloom it can stay!

Hi GG
To paraphrase Dr Seuss

The time has come,
The time is now.
To think of the weekend
I don't care how

Fire up the barbeque,
And cook a steak.
Or take your pole,
And fish at the lake.

Where ever you are,
Where ever you be.
Relax and enjoy life,
Just like me.

Where ever you are,
Enjoy your life.
And I hope your day,
Is without worry or strife.

Take care and be safe
Gary
