Summer Garden 2014 - The Year of the White Flies

2869

I took a year off from gardening this year and Paul had his hands full. We were infested by white flies. He sprayed every weekend and they are still swarming. In a few weeks we will cut everything back for the fall and hopefully that will solve it.

Brian's Moving On

We got to have Brian here for a while this summer. Now he is moving on to the next adventure, but he won't be as far away this time. Here is a picture Brian took from his perspective of P&B Garden after he cleaned the pool. We loved having you home, Brian !!

This weekend Paul helped me in the garden after he finished playing golf on Saturday, even though he was tired. We got a lot done including planting a few new perennials and trimming the trellis vines. Enjoy our summer phlox and rose of sharon tree in full bloom. Happy Independence Day !

I am in the 5 percent of the population that has a severe life threatening allergic reaction known as anaphylaxis when stung by a fire ant. The red or black imported fire ant now infests more than 260 million acres in the southern United States.

Late Bloomers

2869

We are having a very late spring this year.....usually by April 15th, we have our first bloom on all our roses. So I have been enjoying this beautiful double begonia while I wait for Don Juan, Mr. Lincoln and Belinda's Dream rose to open up. Good things come to those who wait.

University of Texas Fire Ant Project

2869

They're back ! Fire Ants, Spring 2014. I researched progress made by our great state of Texas to eliminate fire ants, something that has turned into a life threatening hazard for me. I found that the University of Texas in Austin has a Fire Ant Project.
