... and it is not even June yet! I said after the crazy and cold winter I would not complain and really I did not mind the coldness this past winter, just the constant changing and raining. It would 75 degrees one day and snowing the next! It definitely looks like we are in for a LONG HOT summer though. I am sure to survive though.

The good thing about it being hot is that the nursery that I use starts marking things down trying to sell out of everything because they don't want to work in the heat of summer. This is the advantage for me anyway. Went today to get 2 plants for the teachers and almost everything was marked down, of course except the two I had to buy.

I have been wanting a clematis vine forever and the little pot is $20.00. Got one today for 5.00. YAY for me! Hopefully I will be able to squeeze some money out of the budget and go get a few more plants before they close.

To give an update on my yard and goals.. I got my kio pond dug weekend before last. It is still not up and running yet, got to get the pump, but getting closer and I am excited about that. I weeded the garden last night when I got home and I have about 4 or 5 baby squash coming up. I am SO excited. It is still growing very slow, but things are blooming. I may not get very big products out of it but feel like I will get something out of most everything I have planted.
I called my aunt a couple of days ago and told she better go trim in her flowers beds because I am at the point where I am enticed by any twig I can find to plant. I have run out of things to plant. I guess I will have to start working in other people's yard to get my fix. I have become a "GARDEN JUNKIE". I am not real sure what kind of help there is out there for that. I guess it could be worse. I am having fun and enjoying it and it is great GREAT time I spend with the creator of it all. However I do need some new article and books to read. I think I have read the same 4 I have from front to back about 6 times each now... So if anyone would like to feed my craze, feel free to forward on any articles if you have them. But until then...

I know girl, it is so hot. I have no idea what Summer has in store! I think it is great that you are planting everything in sight!

I had a clematis at our last house. It was so big and it put out flowers as big as my face!! I really wanted to dig it up and move it when we moved but I was sure it wouldn't survive if I did that!

I love squash it is one of my all time favorite veggies!
