I am so pissed off!!! These dangnatious aphids are killing my okra plants. Before I knew it I had lost 3 plants...now 5. I washed them all off the underleaves 2 days ago and they are back again. One of my plants, (the tallest), is ready to flower...I am so excited. My Mom brought over a long tube-like sprayer filled with some kind of poison, and I really don't want to use it. I am going to try washing them off again today and keep a close eye. I also need to re-fertilize again.
We have had a lot of rain the past week, ? due to the hurricane out in the Atlantic??? I don't really know...it has been very breezy too, which has been a relief temperature wise...loving it!
I am sitting here watching the Weather Channel, and it looks like Florida will be spared...which I am grateful for, for sure. I sure hope Earl stays away from the entire coast. My brother is a boat captain, and is with his client's boat in New York right now, so I am watching things closely for him.
I may take myself back over to the beach and check out the wave action, and of course my newly found awesome succulents over there!!
I am working from 6pm-2am tomorrow and Friday, and then will have the weeekend off! Isn't tht awesome??? I just love my new hours...and am so grateful.
I have made over 100 beads from paper for my blog pal, Lynn over at Getting My Feet Wet, which I am sending her in return for a thank you gift she sent me! It is crazy I know, but when you hear the story, you will understand!
First, I had sent her a beautiful bracelet made by Ugandan women, which was a complete surprise for her. This was an initiative started by the beautiful Soulbrush, over in England.
Lynn then completely blew my socks off with an even bigger surprise which came in the mail. I was completely blown away! It was one of her treasure pocket books!!! Here are a few pics!
So because I recieved this unbelievable creation from her, it set me to thinking about what I could do for her...and that is how I started making her a few more beads. Not to take away from the Ugandan women...this was just for fun, and as a help to Lynn, cause she makes such neat things with all of her embellishments. I hope she will like them. I won't show a pic, so they can be a surprise for her.
Thanks again, Lynn for the beautiful treasure pocket book!!!
I leave you with a photo I took in my rear view mirror of a probable 200 yard long median filled with beautiful blooming Plumbago!
