Looking forward to the new site! I’ll make sure to spread the news when its ready! Thanks Sissi!9 Feb 2018 at 11:20 pm #196070KeymasterEdna
It’s going to take a little while to get this done. The site is old and is massive, so Sissi has a huge job to do. She is working as hard as she can to get us all fixed up.10 Feb 2018 at 6:46 pm #53384SpectatorKathleenB

It’s pretty easy to post images now that I’ve discovered the little “picture” icon above (on the top right when you are posting). To be sure my photos are a good size to post, I always reduce the size to 480 x 360. The difference in resolution is completely unnoticeable (unless you are trying to create a huge masterpiece). Put your cursor where you want to insert the picture. Click on the “picture” icon above, then click on the camera. Find your photo – Open, & then Please Wait a few seconds until the Source URL completes & then click OK.
Our first fall frost happened a couple nights ago, so I was busy hauling a few Brugs in to shelter, but most of them are watered by a couple sprinklers that I have set up, so I turned the sprinklers on at 01:00 a.m. and left it running until 09:00 later that morning. The lawn and veg. garden were white with frost , but the brugs were fine. Chilly, but fine.
Now starts the fall “Haul-In”.
I didn’t have time to tidy anything up, but here are some pics of a few of the last blooms of 2019 on my Brugs:
Miss Emily MacKenzie:
Culebra (just budding up):
Painted Lady (pale in the cold) :
New Orleans Lady:
Cindy Ann (first day open):

What a great display from you Alvin, even though the temps are against you.
Cindy Anne continues to impress with its growth and blooming habit
You even got Snowbank to flower, I tip my hat sir!
Good luck with the haul in, never a pleasant experience
