  1. Hiya Dave,
    What lovely news.
    Congratulations. You will be short of leisure time now.
    And I like the presentation of today's GBBD post. Very original.

  2. Wonderful mosiacs of your September blooms.

  3. Wow. what an array of pretty blooms. I don't see that many around here.
    You have bee very busy.

  4. dave, I love the new technique for showcasing your beautiful blooms~How have the first weeks of school been for your oldest? gail

  5. Beautiful post… I don't know how you're able to keep up with all your blogging, photo-ing, outdoor work, etc. But I'm glad you're able to make it all come together – You do it all well. :-)

  6. I hope to participate this year. The past two years I have been in Jacksonville and what tree's changed did so in December and they were not pretty. Of course we already have colour in Kentucky due to the drought and heat.


  7. Hi Joco and thanks! I've been very busy. Hopefully we'll get a routine established that will work for everyone!

    Thanks GIAS!

    Also the Fall Color Project will be whenever you fall colors are at their peak. Use your best judgment and post on it – just be sure to let me know when you do. Glad to have you aboard!


    Yes we have – although not as much in the garden as I would like. Most of those blooms pretty much take care of themselves thankfully!


    She's doing good overall. Tired at the end of the day. I'm not a fan of all day long kindergarten. When I was a kid it was half a day. She comes home completely spent. It makes no sense to keep children that young all day since they are basically worn out at lunchtime.


    I'm very lucky to have great children and a great wife who let me do this stuff when we have time available. Once the shed gets finished up more I'll be able to relaxe on the major projects – at least until the garden fence and the…


    Sounds great Jake! Florida isn't well known for fall color – although I hear it does happen. A trade off for the warmer winters.

  8. Looking good Dave! You have added so much to your gardens with your Propagation techniques. Very impressive and you are the King of Propagation!

  9. Lovely blooms Dave… and presentation too. I love the caryopteris … I cannot get it to grow here! Must try again.

  10. I love the "postcard" effect of your photo groupings, Dave – a very creative and visually pleasing to show off each plant. And your sweep of caryopteris is gorgeous!

  11. Purddy purddy blooms Dave!

    I plan on participating in FCP again this year.

    Some of the kindergarteners who ride my bus sure don't seem to be out of energy at the end of the day. If I didn't know any better, I'd say they're more energetic then than the are in the mornins.

  12. Hi Dave, That caryopteris is outstanding! And lucky you to have an iris!

  13. I really love how you put these collages together. :)
