What are you planting Thee? Most plants in my new garden are bits taken from other plants... a long way to go until they look effective.

Thanks Abwal, actually the gazebo is a cool spot in summer... must be because it is low and under the trees...plus the NE breezes come through that area..... I am usually too busy to enjoy.

:lol: Well, since you don't seem to have livestock needing that grass, midgin...

How about we start with the tea party about 10am, cruise around all those wonderful niches of midgin's gardens, lunch on the lawn (or lawn substitute :roll: ), then move on to the Pina Colada's...
