All Good Things Must End My Friends.

No, I’m not closing down this blog. The good thing that is ending is my three-week break from courses. This morning the classroom once again lit up as another quarter begins. This time however, I expect a more sane and reasonable work load. Last quarter just about did me in but now my toughest courses are behind me and I’m heading down the stretch to practicums and field work (to take up the entire year 2013).

As a last hoorah before the new quarter, Richard and I took a quick trip to Kentucky to spend a few days with family and friends. Other than the brutal heat (temps in the six digits each day we were there) we relaxed and enjoyed the time we had with Mom and Dad and others. I came back with a car load of plants to beautify our yard. Enjoy some of the photos I shot while in Kentucky. If the plants take root, this will give a hint of what we look forward to next year.

Enjoy your weekend. And for those of you in the US (especially central and eastern), stay cool if you can.

My potted garden thrived even while we were away!
We came home to find our first two ripe tomatoes! Yum.
The beginning of our Kentucky garden in Ohio. 😉

    1. The second flower is a cone flower. It draws bees when they bloom, but when the center ‘cone’ turns to seed, the yellow finches will feast on them. Glad you liked the photo.

      We were in Louiville for two days. I thought of y’all and hopefully on a future trip home we will be able to pop over to Lexington for a visit. Would love to meet you and Sara face-to-face!

      Stay cool; it seems you are having it worse than we are here in Cleveland.

      Hugs back,

  1. Tomato plants are like a magnet for insects destroy entire garden and I always used to plant them separately another area of yard. Leaf minors are the worst. These can be controlled by simple home made organic insect killer. Put several cigarettes in water spray bottle with water . In two days it should like like dark tea. Spray. It will kill and control bugs and does no harm to plants or fruit.

    1. Richard was taken aback when I told him I had to make a run to CVS for a pack of cigarettes! LOL! BUT, I’m going to give it a try. Thanks for the hint. 🙂

    1. Thanks Barbara. I will finish putting out the plants today, and will get started on my classes by this afternoon. Thank you for the well wishes. 🙂

  2. Coneflowers are one of my favorites. Your potted plants did do very well! Enjoy those tomatoes! (I know you will!) Or have already done so.

    1. Thanks Naomi. I’m putting out the last of the plants from KY today. The weather should be a bit milder. And then I’ll be hitting the books this afternoon! Thanks for stopping by. 🙂

    1. Ooooo… Hope “they” are right and that you get a reprieve from the heat. It was in the three digits while we were at Mom and Dad’s, but it has been in the upper 90’s here at home. Today’s predicted high is 79 degrees. Yay! 🙂

    1. 🙂 Glad you like the photos. I have thoroughly enjoyed the break from academia and am a bit saddened that it is time to jump back into coursework. This quarter will be less intense however, so I hope to keep up with everyone more regularly than I did last quarter. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week. 🙂

  3. Love the photos, Ms. F! Especially those tomatoes (you’d better keep your eye on them know that I know there are some ripe ones about 😉 )!
    Seriously, though… best of luck this quarter!!! A LOT of work, I’m sure, but something tells me it will be over before you / we know it!

    1. thanks SIG. Hopefully this quarter will be a less intense and more enjoyable than last. And the tomatoes ? . . . there are PLENTY for everyone, so come on over and pick a few 😉 Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week.

    1. I hope so. The flowers are a bit droopy after the long ride on a very hot day from KY to northern OH, but next spring they should be beautiful and I’m looking forward to the birds! Thanks for stopping by. 🙂
