when the buds are on the camillias. I noticed the buds yesterday. I was concerned the drought would keep the camillias from blooming this winter. Happy to say that didn't happen.

Can't wait to see pictures, Sheri - those flowers are sooooo pretty!

I know it's fall, when I give in and buy mums once again, even though each year I swear I'm not going to put money into them again! Got 3 nice pink plants full of buds today at Home Depot!

It's spring here & we've already had 29C (85F) temps, a little cooler today though with some welcome rain. Saw some camellia plants (in flower!!) for sale yesterday, don't know how well they would grow in our climate & at this time of the year. I know very little about growing them but I did think they needed a cooler climate than ours. Happy days to you all.

I know fall is almost here because it's getting colder and colder overnight and we're starting to get more days of rain.

Dodge, aren't you a fan of cool weather?

Johnny asked the other day if I wanted him to pick up some pansys. It's too hot and dry to think of pansys.

We were given two hands to hold, two eyes to see, two ears to listen & two legs to walk. But why were we given only one heart?
The other heart was given to another for us to find.

Are you trying to tell us you don't shave in the autumn and winter? But what about wearing dresses and skirts?

Oh, my goodness!!! Snow on a camellia (tree?)!!!!! All this talk about snow etc makes me feel quite shivery all over. Haven't even seen a frost for more than 20yrs & that was a very mild once off. Brrrrr. Have to travel & pay through the nose to have a snow experience. Have to admire the gardening expertise required to keep plants going during colder weather. Happy gardening etc to you all.

Don't get so excited........That was an old photo.. Different parts of the USA don't ever get snow........Others freeze.............
I get snow about November /december.........We pay thru the nose for Heating.
Nov to april our furnaces get stuffed with dollars.

So enjoy you life.....We cant stand it above 80......We feel dead.

We heat with natural gas and it's SOOOO expensive. I sit here and freeze to death in the winter....I'm a scrooge and I keep the heat on about 63 unless we get company. I don't like it too hot in here anyway---that dry heat makes me feel like I can't breathe sometimes. Gas bills were still about $200 a month last year--hard to believe when we freeze all winter.

Heat shouldn't be so expensive.

Your heat is including water tho......More hot baths and clothes washing......Higher the bill.
Were in a rural area..........Are you in a Borough?
It is more expensive in those/

Water is in there yep, but we don't bathe or wash clothes anymore in the winter than we do in the summer. why I don't cook with gas like my mom does and their house is huge and their bills aren't much more than mine. Makes me mad to pay so much just for heat.

Last year we bought some electric heaters to help out. I run one in the bedroom for a while before we go to sleep so I don't have to turn the heat on upstairs. thumbup

Newer electric heaters are pretty safe nowadays.
