So many apples - really loved the apple juice we bought in Wisley! Lovely garden and soooo big!

We had heavy rain throughout the night. Over 2" of rain. Whenever we have multiple inches of rain, my native garden turns into a pond and stream for 12 to 24 hours. I like it. It changes the scenery a bit, and I've been planting more wetland species or wet-tolerant species to better emulate the natural habitat. The only problem is my woodchip path all floats away every time it floods.
I'm thinking about adding a small boardwalk pathway instead.

Cool mailbox!

I've seen too many of my neighbors' mailboxes destroyed to put such a nice one out.
Thank You. We live at the end of a dead end street but even then things can happen. I asked my Becky to use some of her gourd art wood burning skills on the to liven it up. Any excuse to use my post hole digger really.

Who's in the avatar please? Is that you, DM? Or a beekeeper next door!

Don't you just want to have an artist in the house - such a glorious piece of artwork - Fab!

If you want a clematis, please get 3 evergreen ones on an obelisk - you don't really want your old and brown clematis branches to greet the postman. It's so nice to have letter box at a height postmen can reach. Some letter boxes are next to the ground. Very vicious - these people should go around one day working as a postman!

The avatar is actually @vette-kid who is so allergic to poison ivy he dressed this way to fight it off. I borrowed his picture from his post for a while:ROFLMAO:(y)

What do mean please when you say obelisk? I am afraid my Atlantic translation service must be down right now.

Whoa! Poison ivy is serious business.

Should have said garden obelisk

Bought a few pumpkins for decoration. The past few years I had been growing them, but the plants refused to grow this year. It's worth noting that I put in almost no effort, so I'm not too surprised that I didn't get any. Maybe next year.

I can remember a time when my dating life could have been described in a similiar fashion.
