Stop posting photos of your gardens! My hubby now wants to move to Canada where he can live surrounded by beautiful trees and have a lush garden!

(I think the Mississippi heat is getting to him.)

:p

you would be more than welcome !! just remind him it also gets some what cool in the winter, 0f being a nice day and some times minus 35f with an unmentionable wind chill value!! you also have a longer growing season, ours started cool and wet this year, vegy garden just never took off (weeds sure did though!!!!) flower gardens look very full and kinda wild this year, what we aimed for color all summer long.

you mean these sorts of photos? lol :shrug:



One thing ya gotta remember in my neck of the woods all this garden growing weather is VERY short lived compared to your warm seasons down in the south. Frost is still deep in the ground in late April almost every year. Labour Day is a good guage of when our first frost day in fall occurs.
Like they say, we have 9 months of winter, and the rest of the year is good sledding..... lol

He lived in Labrador for a while when he was a child (his dad was in the Air Force) so he knows about the winters. He is just really impressed with the lush greeness of your gardens and the beautiful trees and landscape he could see in the photos. It doesn't help that we had a high of 102 today and it is supposed to hit 104 by Friday. Plus, we haven't had rain in a month and everything is getting brown and crispy.

Was it also quite humid?

We have had humid weather lately and it just kills me when I'm working outside. 80% humidity doesn't work well for me, I don't know how y'all do it.
