Catching Up.......

One of our Ornamental MaryJane Nectarine Trees This is our cat Timmy getting himself a beverage!
I've had some serious computer issues over the past week. I still don't have it completely worked out but at least I can get on here a little now. It will be another week or two until things are up and running smoothly again. I left off on Friday....a friend of mine from Pennsylvania was here for Gatornationals. Her husband is on the pit crew for one of the race car drivers who is his nephew ( I think, or cousin). Anyway, we went Geocaching on Friday. It rained most of the day, but we did it anyway. She has been doing it for about a year, but it was my first time Geocaching. I loved it! It's like a treasure hunt. If you don't know about it, you should really check it out. Go to
As I said, it rained most of the day Friday and then Saturday it was extremely windy all day and somewhat overcast. Sunday on the other hand was absolutely beautiful Florida weather. Itr was actually a little too warm. Bruce & I worked in the Garden. Got a few more things planted, fertilized, pruned all the roses. It was around 80 and I got some sunburn. We saw alot of Robins in the yard and also a couple of Cardinals. There were 3 Giant Swallowtails on our MaryJane Nectarine this time! In addition to them there were a ton of Sulfurs. When I was done pruning the roses, I sat in a chair, hanging with the dogs and talked on the cell phone to my mom for an hour while Bruce kept working. What can I say, I just don't have as much energy as him, especially on a lazy Sunday! I did take a few more photographs as promised, of the MaryJane Nectarine in the backyard. I hope to get out there again tonight and get a few more things done.
