Thanks for the new thread, Janice. Your picture looks good! I don't know how my garden is going to look with all this heat and drought. My pictures may be few and far between this month. But I will enjoy seeing everyone else's.

Thanks, Tee. My garden is in its' Fall decline. I late planted many different Morning Glory varieties sent to me by friends this year and they are coming into their own. They are not invasive here, as we have cold winters.
JoAnn, I hope you get your pics back!

I'm with you, Jo Ann. Just random pictures taken here and there. A few things still look fairly good. Your hydrangeas sure look nice!

Veronica, what is the orange spotted flower in the center of your shot? I think I just ordered that from Bluestone but I can't for the life of me remember the name. *Blush* Anyway, so pretty!

Another sweltering week here too, Cinda. Maybe some rain by the end of the week.

Group hug for all of us who are suffering from the weather, drought, and declining gardens. Group hug

SongsOfJoy -- I noticed you said you are on dialup and asked for a new thread. I am a moderator of another forum, and a cubit, and would like to ask you a question. I was under the impression that Dave implemented the "pages" to the threads to help with the problem of slow loading for dial up users. After he did that, in my forum, I quit worrying about long threads, and no one has complained, so I thought Dave had solved the problem. Did you notice any difference in the way pages load after that? Do you have your profile set to have the lowest number of items per page (20)? Please tree mail your answer to me - I don't want to change the topic of this thread. Especially since this is not my forum. But, I would really like to know! Thanks!

I don't think so...I have seen them called both. BTW blackberry is the more common as the seed pods look just like a blackberry...Thanks for calling that to my attention.. Smiling
