….of wildfires, stock markets & hydrangeas…

….”37,000 people now evacuated from their homes across British Columbia”….”World stock markets hit records highs as Chinese GDP beats forecasts”…

Patience, stress, worry, & uncertainty are some of the buzz words of the day for many displaced British Columbians as wildfires rage out of control threatening too many communities and requiring more and more evacuation orders in the central area of the province.

Cheers to all the offers of support from far and wide for those affected and those assisting the first responders and firefighters who are working unceasingly as hot, dry, conditions persist across the province….

SOMETHING ABOUT….”although the Chinese economy was holding up better than expected in the first half of the year & will likely continue to do so for a short while longer, a slowdown is likely inevitable.”

My green thumb came only as a result of the mistakes I made while learning to see things from the plant’s point of view. ~H. Fred Dale (Thanks, Anne)

Gardening is cheaper than therapy and you get tomatoes. ~Author Unknown

Science, or para-science, tells us that geraniums bloom better if they are spoken to. But a kind word every now and then is really quite enough. Too much attention, like too much feeding, and weeding and hoeing, inhibits and embarrasses them. ~Victoria Glendinning

Weather means more when you have a garden. There’s nothing like listening to a shower and thinking how it is soaking in around your green beans. ~Marcelene Cox

Cheers to a fine summer Monday that sings—how green is the ‘garden’ that’s my day!
