We have had quite a few weeks of rain and they say it's only going to get worse as the next week comes. I went out to see how the flowers on my deck were taking all the wind, rain and ucky heat we have had and I saw snails on everything.
The Hoya had some really nice blooms. I'm happy to say the snails did not like the taste and moved on to more appealing greenery.
Then I saw how happy the Poinsettias were out in all that weather. I kept two left over from the holidays and put them in a large pot. They grow wonderful here in Florida and you can see many very large bushes in neighboring yards. These will go out back if the rain ever stops and somehow right on que as Christmas approaches they will start to bloom their beautiful red color.
That is if the snails don't eat them all gone!
Didn't I read somewhere this plant was poison? It's not killing the snails!
I do know there is a Snail Bait product on the market, to kill these little pests but my yard is completely organic and green... I just can't kill anything unless I use a natural product. I have said in previous posts my yard is registered with National Wildlife Federation and is a Backyard Habitat. So these little buggers get to eat my plants!
Then I saw nothing but stems left on my parsley.
The rain is to continue were were told. A tropical something will be coming next week and also there is another system in the Atlantic and NOAA said to "Watch this One".
Guess I should smile about this because I will not be in Florida for the next month.
I'm flying to Oklahoma to spend some much needed time with my three grandsons who finally came back to the States. If I'm lucky I might get to feel Fall as it comes into the Midwest in September.
I'm so happy!
While in OKC I'll try to take a few moments to gather some photos and do a post or two on my visit.
Stay dry everyone and have a great transition into Fall!
