    Thanks for the reminder to everyone. I picked mine up at our local garden center, they were having a 1/2 price Labor Day Weekend sale on dirt, mulches, etc. I got my bale for 1/2 price. I was so happy.

    Bill, you asked what to spray your tree with, so this is what I use. If you wanted to drench your soil for critters in the soil, which I wasn't clear if that is what you asked, I use nothing. There is no need for me to do so in the soiless mix I use.. Thanks to a many members here, I was recomended to use a few to "spray". The ones that I have found to work beautifully are, Toni's recipe natural killer...linked on the bottom.. And this year before bringing them in, a combination of rubbing alchohol, pure neem oil, and some dish soap in a quart squirt bottle. Tonis recipe keeps them under control to non-existant all winter, while the other seems to kill pests immediately for good so far. Since using this method, it is the first time I have no pests after a while indoors... I like them both.. Goodluck everyone..Happy winter already! Here is a link that might be useful: tonis recipre

    The rain. July was more normal, but we still exceeded our monthly rainfall by seven tenths of an inch (the airport) or 2.4 inches (my back deck). Oh, yeah, and today's gorgeous...but the next five days feature high probability of rainfall. My zinnia have alternaria blight from all this.

    Don't hate me Amy, but pink is my least favorite color in the entire color spectrum so I won't be celebrating. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't enjoy a day that was obviously meant for you!!

    I love pink, though it shows up mostly in my gardens. I only have a handful of pink colored articles of clothing, which is a shame because it looks so good on me, lol. Actually, pink is universally becoming on everyone, no matter the skin tone, hair color, age, or sex.


    My young sprites review their calendar of national "days' every week, a habit we started even before covid closed the schools, so we've been learning all about the color pink. They will make sure that we and all of their friends celebrate it.


    Today, by the way, is National Kissing Day, celebrate it with gusto (amongst those closest to you)! It's also onion rings day, which our chef sprite will make is for supper.

    I'm wearing a pink tank top right now. Would have saved it for tomorrow if I'd known. I'll be sure to use the pink bath towels tomorrow. And when I go to the grocery store later today, I'll pick up a pink Polvorone to eat tomorrow.

    Is there a National Blue Day? Or any other color National day?

    This seems an appropriate place to ask this. I see people wearing clothes with the word PINK emblazoned on them. Usually T-shirts. They aren't pink in color (put me down on gardengal's team about that, but Amylou's enthusiasm for pink is fun), they just have the word written. I've always assumed they were Pink fans, Pink the singer, but recently I saw something that made me wonder if they are about something else...maybe breast cancer, but there is never the ribbon symbol you see with those items. Anyone know?

    They said all their pink shipments were diverted to Texas. That is puzzling because Amylou is in Alabama, isn't she -- wouldn't all pink things gravitate toward her? :-)

    Pants made in Brazil, plastic shoes from Greece, belt from women's dept of Neiman-Marcus Houston, pink and gold lamé socks and shoe laces from The Funny Farm in San Francisco. I had some pink mirrored aviator sunglasses, but I took them off in this photo. I was warned not to wear this on the street in central Texas - photo from 1981.

    Another pink fan here. I need the name of a good OPI pink polish. Last time I had a pedi, I went through 3 samples of pink polish on my toes and I didn’t like any of them. Finally went with the last one only because I was embarassed to ask the nail tech to try again. But I wasn’t happy.

    Happy pink day! I love pink! Just bought 4 hot pink Italian linen tops and a summer dress from TJ , The 4 tops are in two different styles. I collected all the pink ones from two TJ stores. And bought a few hot pink straw hats. It’s very hard to find hot pink straw hats, so I bought all the ones in stock, 8 in total. They should last me for a long time, It’s even harder to find pink riding boots, I ended up with two pink hiking boots.

    I'm not a fan of pink generally, but for some reason that pale warm pink that's near beige is attractive to me...could do a room in it....



    And of course flowers can come in whatever shade of pink they want and look absolutely stunning.

    l pinkmountain. in 1981, my natural hair color was auburn, but I dyed it medium ash brown to get rid of the red tones and the gray. By the time I was 50, my natural color was ash blond, and so I stopped dying it.

    This is one of my favorite pink flowers:

    It is also one that I've had the longest, and I kept putting it in larger pots, allowing it to grow into a very large plant. The flowers are iridescent and almost gaudy because their colors are so intense.

    Amylou, i didn't forget and wore this today. I love to wear pink as i think it flatters my skin tone. Hot pink too, but i don’t feel ’flashy’ and don’t wear that color much anymore unless it’s under a jacket.

    My favorite garden color combo is purple, pink and white.
