Thanks for the clue, I hadn't figured it out yet. I hope you have as much fun with my spell check errors, Daniel and Spud, as I have with yours. We are all in this boat together, it seems.
Thanks Daniel. I'll try that.
Here's the quarry where I get my sand and gravel:
That is their "quarry" in Wyoming. Not "guard". This new computer automatically puts words in that it thinks I mean. I've got to get used to watching it, or stop it from doing that.
Joan, I don't yet know what your bottom picture is. I got the streets mixed-up in my head when I went looking for it, so didn't find it today.
Your top picture is the J.R. Simplot fertilizer factory. The dark areas are holding ponds for the slurry from the pipeline that comes from their guard in Wyoming. They use that slurry to make fertilizer. The grey areas are waste tailings.
I am content! The slugs have their love affair! All is right with my little world. Wish I could say the same for all others in the world!
You're welcome, Daniel. Good morning! How are you getting all that work done? I am a lazy slug, and I still don't feel guilty, just enjoying it. Thankfully, I have a lot of support.
Will Ning be back from China soon? I wonder if he notices many changes in his country since all the trade that increased since the days when I was there, the mid-1980s. It was very primitive then, even in the cities. That is one place I would like to return, even though I don't want to do any more travelling. I shall travel through the stories of others. I hope Ning shares his stories with you and me.
Have you noticed any changes in temperature or dates of season change? I think I have, i.e. we haven't had our first frost yet.
I created this lovely garden for my enjoyment, and now I get to watch as the love-slugs enjoy it with me. We both feel great emotion over the whole thing. The slugs and I are getting ready for a wet winter, with little snow, or a cold one with lots of snow, or the usual winter with no difference what-so-ever, according to which Farmer's Almanac I read.
I just looked and Weather Spokane, Washington Long Range Weather Forecast stated
"Wetter than usual."
My firefighting family will be happy to learn that.
These are the two sites I noticed. Are they quarries?
Daniel, I propagate Echinacea - Coneflowers by seeds and divisions, using the usual method. I leave the seed heads uncut until spring because they attract Goldfinches. I save what seeds that remain and use them for seeding outside, or seeding inside starting in about February.
Grandma divided her plants, taking a patch about 6" x 6" and putting it in a new place. She also left the seeds to overwinter and let the plants reseed in the patch. I usually don't go to the effort to divide plants unless it needs dividing.
"Echinacea comes from the Greek 'echinos' meaning 'hedgehog.'" What an appropriate name for this plant! It looks and feels like a hedgehog!
This is the echinacea variety I have, echinacea primadonna deep rose
It glows and shimmers when I look closely at it in the garden.
