Hey, everyone.
We haven't had too much activity lately. Life happens, responsibilities change habits and leisure time. How about we just have a CHAT session from this month going forward. If the thread gets too long Rolling my eyes. we'll start another thread. Feel free to start up any thread at all regarding your favorite gardening subjects in this desert area!
So....... "... how does your garden grow?"Thumb of 2012-11-08/Aguane/36c5f1

good idea Susie. And we are able at ATP to have our settings personalized. When I log on it shows me the last post I read so I don't have to scroll in that particular forum.

I am excited the weather is cooling off at last. Tomorrow is supposed to be 74 in Phoenix with a low of 49. Saturday is to be 63 with a low of 40. I am sooooooooooo happy!!!

I was at the dog park Hayden and McDonald and it rained for a short time. Dogs didn't even notice.

I loved waking up with two quilts piled on top of me! And now, with the windows open, I am snuggled in a cozy bathrobe that hasn't been out of my closet since last winter. Love the cold months in Phoenix.

Margaret, how pretty it must be and how fun for you to have snow!!!!
Susie, I love the smell of snap dragons...I had some extra spicy ones a few years ago and they were amazing.
Linda, we had rain too. love it!

It was 40 degrees here last night and my single Morning Glory plant looks a lot worse fr the wear. Sad, it has been blooming all fall on my balcony. It's so cold today and I'm loving it!!!!

Linda, did you know Susie makes quilts? They are beautiful!!!

Hi Becky ! Smiling

Yes, I knew she did quilts and I collect small ones to hang on the wall when I can find them.

We were 37 F last night and due for a freeze tonight. I have many, many pots of large multi-colered Coleus and red leaf Hibiscus that may expire tonight. Sad I love the cold but I love all that color as well so hope they make it. I have taken a lot of cuttings incase.

Morning glories do not like the cold, sadly. Hope yours perks back up.

No, the hibiscus are about 8 ft. tall and would break and the Coleus are just too many and too heavy to bring in. Covering does not always work for the Coleus anyways. Sad The wind is blowing and sometimes that keeps the temps up at night ! Thumbs up

I don't think so because I usually lose my plants just before Thanksgiving . Crying

So why do you plant stuff this time of year knowing that they may die? Shrug!
