AHHHH gardening weather.


The collage I did above I call "Age of aquarius". I used to love reading my horoscopes daily but our newspaper,"The Baltimore Sun" has become pretty tiny and shoddy. I now wait for the "City paper" to come out on Wednesdays to read their unusual take on horoscopes. I always get a laugh when I read them.

I admit I am a fair weather gardner. I get a few new plants and take care of them til the weather is so hot I don't want to go outside. Unless I sit out 15 min a day for the sun,I will burn from the house to the car. I am a whiter shade of pale. I may be part vampire also,I prefer going out after dark. But having been a redhead my whole life I lusted after a good tan. I am loving the mixes of the races nowdays and the lovely skin colors around. So my new flowers burn like I do in the hot summer months.

Hi Joy! Oh; I'm with you. I do not like hot weather! I live in the Northeast and can get through the three seasons okay. As soon as July and August come, I start complaining. Love this collage of yours! The colors are beautiful and a great composition. Thanks for your lovely comments on my Blog and YES! I think Lisa Bebi is the best! I've learned so much from her Blog and articles in Somerset! :)

Beautiful collage, Joy. I love the woman in green.

I too burn in the sun, and living out in SoCal now have had to learn the ways of sunblock every day. First thing out of the shower! In Chicago, it wasn't such a big deal.
