The Bamboo Jungle

The Bamboo Jungle This week is almost behind us. Really don't know where it went. Planted the Agave Americana after they arrived. The person I bought them from on ebay advertised 10 babies but instead sent me 26! How wonderful and generous is that??

The heat is on again and doesn't seem to be able to get the next five day forecast correct for anything! Yesterday morning they said the temps would be in the 90's then a couple hours later they changed it to the 80's and now this morning they are back to the 90's !!! And we are supposed to take their word for our forecasts??? Flipping a coin would be just as accurate!

Speaking of, what's with these girls (women) with the stick bodies? Don't they eat? Some of the gentlemen forecasters don't look like they are starving to death, but the women look like they are at deaths door! Also, did you ever here of brunettes??? Yes, the African American ladies have dark hair, but all the white ladies are either blonde or quickly turning blonde on that network. Me thinks a producer there is into blondies! ;-)

Back to gardening talk. One thing you need to watch out for at this time of year in the deep south, especially, is underground bee and wasp nests as well as those in the trees and tall shrubs. We have some kind of nest on our property up by the highway and these critters swarm every vehicle as soon as they turn in to go down the long, winding driveway to our home. Yesterday my son was attacked and it was like something out of a horror film! Luckily, whatever we have doesn't sting, but they can swarm all over you with-in seconds and that is what happened to him as he pulled his little Carmaro into the home stretch. He was banging on the front door (locked) and screaming to get in but my visiting daughter and I were back in my room on the computer and watching tv with lot's of fans going and didn't here him. He finally used his key and came in to tell us of his horrendous adventure with the "killer" bees. NOT! Being the commedian that he is, he had us rolling on the floor in tears before his story was even half over. Hmmmmm, I must remember to roll up my window the next time Db and I venture out to the store....Later gator!
