Due to the storm, to be named Jerry, crossing Florida we received rain for 2 days. Part of the storm escaped and came to visit NE NC and are we ever thankful for that. The temps have lowered and sleeping has been peaceful. But there was a draw back, the rain saturated the phone box and knocked my ringer out. So I get e-mails saying "Call Me" .... The grass is starting to turn green again and will probably be back to normal by Sunday. We have another day of rain to go... The Ginger Lilies are happy and the birds are eating worms again. I guess all is right and I'm waiting patiently to call Michigan, for my brother is under going major surgery today. All prayers will be appreciated..

New friend

I am proud to announce that I have a new friend.
On you ask people to be your friend as in art, memories all the different groups. Well we have a few of the people running for president in the group and so I decided to see who would bother to check and accept your friendship. I got my one and only reply today, and based on that, I realized that if his group bothered to answer then they did care about the people.. Well Rudy, you passed and I am so proud that you did, it makes my choice simple now..
He was on my list of people that had the right qualifications..

October art exhibit

I'm not missing this one. The first art exhibit online for WWAO is still running and will till September 30th 2007.
We are all getting ready for the 2nd exhibit, October 1st through October 31st.
Each will be hosted by a different member.
Last month I had so much trouble trying to resize my photo that I completely reduced it to cyber space and lost it completely. I have studied more about pixels/inches and finally got it right.
My pretty white fawn that a few ladies named "Princess Outlaw" is my choice. The reason they named her after us was because I painted 4 paintings of Princess Outlaw.
I will be putting the information here and on Eons as I did for the first show. That was a real trip, due to what I believe were a few jealous men. What they didn't realize was that the more they posted the more the others seen the post and the first day over 1500 people visited. Bless men they can be more helpful than they realize by protesting.

Movin' on up

Good news from again. The manager of the group "Sand Country Gardening" was unable to continue with his duties so I am now manager. The major portion of my flowers are grown in sand with a little help from Miracle grow slow release in the spring and help from Mother Nature. We received a little rain thanks to hurricane Humbarto coming to see us compliments of Texas and a front coming down from the North...

Why do they change??

I'm adding 2 photos today, one of my Mums which were white when I planted them, and are now a rust color. I know we are in a drought here, or maybe they got sunburned.
The other is, depending on what part of the country you are in, a Beauty bush or Seatic Berry Bush. I started that in 1999 from a stem from the original bush that was at hubbies home place. It took three years to get it growing and on the 4th year a few berries. Hubby is so happy this year to see it lush and full.

Tropical storm "Wimpy"

As you know NE North Carolina has been in a drought this year, actually several years, and we were due to get dumped on this week-end from a tropical storm. HA-HA that was the biggest wimp I've ever seen. We had four rain clouds with approximately 1 minute of rain in each one. Less than 1/16th of an inch. So back to a little water to keep the plants alive.
If all goes well I should have a new picture tomorrow. Till then..
