This had a bit of a false start earlier this year, before the weather cooled down again.

It's looking good! I heard it's really starting to warm up there.

24 Jul, 2012

 

At long last - everything is dry now!

25 Jul, 2012

 

That's great! Maybe it'll stay dry and warm for a little while?

25 Jul, 2012

 

Too dry now!!!!

25 Jul, 2012

 

Wow! Never satisfied! You don't know what dry is...it's when you don't receive rain for 7 - 9 months!!!

Trouble is though that to grow something such as this it has to be in a pot to survive. So in this weather I'm constantly watering.

"So in this weather I'm constantly watering" Welcome to my world of watering every day and sometimes twice a day. :>)

My beautiful Croton in the front yard was growing beautifully. I've been watering it almost everyday...then I realized the tips were dying back. It was due to the roots not receiving the water. The ground is that hard and dry now.

It's a pain in the whotsit!!!

27 Jul, 2012

 

"whotsit" Is that a snack food? LOL! :>)

27 Jul, 2012

 

It is, or another term for the "ass"!!!

27 Jul, 2012

 

LOL! I knew what you meant...just never heard it worded like this before. It must be an English saying. :>)

28 Jul, 2012

 

It's a word us bumpkins use a lot Delonix!

28 Jul, 2012

 

I don't think I would consider you a bumpkin. The English tend to be far more sophisticated than that... :>)

28 Jul, 2012

 

Shucks! thought that I'd get you with that one!!

28 Jul, 2012

 

No, I'm a little smarter than that... LOL! :>)
