Lovely gifts!

My daughter got me a wonderful sign for mothers day. "Gardening; the slowest of the performing arts". It's hanging on the door of the new toolshed that my her husband built for me. The shed looks like an old outhouse. On the inside instead of a toilet there is a bench,with a lid that lifts up, for storage. He did a wonderful job on it.
I would like to add a small lean to on the side to put a small table for potting plants. Overall it's the best gift I've received :)

Daniel, a beautiful zucchini.

Kathy, blues in the garden have not been easy for me to find. I look forward to you and me getting acquainted with our cameras and transporting photos to A/N. I continue to have problems. I signed up for a class to learn more.

First Zucchini of the summer.  I am happy.

Kathy, would love to see your hydrangia!  It's truly rewarding to grow a beautiful plant from an unpromising start.  I love doing that.

I'd love to see those photos!

I've usually found it easier to remove the memory card from the camera and read it directly on my computer. Before I had a computer with card reader slots, a USB plug-in memory card reader did the trick. The card shows up as a "Removable disk", and the pictures are usually in folders like DCIM > 100NIKON (or similar).

Folks might have better advice in the group "How To Do It!"

I wish I could get the camera to transfer photos to this site. My older hydrangea, that I bought for .50 about twelve years ago, has so many brilliant blue blooms, I'm afraid it will break under the weight of them. I almost removed it last fall. It had not bloomed well for the past four years. A small start from it has gotten almost five ft tall and has as many blooms as it's mother plant. I suppose it was all the early rainfall that did it. Whatever the reason they are the brightest shade of blue I've ever seen on hydrangeas.

Despite the fact we have many deer around these parts, they don't bother with my yard and garden. My SIL just hit a deer with his truck two days ago! And I saw my first Japanese beetle yesterday in my red raspberry patch. NOOOO!  I have to cover my sweet potato starts with coffee cans overnight to prevent rabbits from eating them down to the ground.

Chris, I am glad to learn you turned a wretched task into an opportunity to participate with neighbors to solve the water problem. There is nothing like a strong sense of community, especially during difficult times.
