Busy Gardening and Fighting With Computers

blue hydrangea address labelsI work online. I spend anywhere from 5 to 10 hours a day online either creating for my Zazzle stores or promoting products. But, after my laptop began giving me trouble, I was forced to buy a new computer. I’ve gone from a pc to a Mac and that means a learning curve. My biggest problem is figuring out the photo area. With the option of “pictures” and “iPhoto” I can’t seem to integrate the two, or access the photos I want when I want.

Along with all this brain crowding of technology that I dislike immensely, my vegetable gardens have been overflowing with cucumbers, zucchini, parsley, and now tomatoes. It’s almost time to plant lettuce and peas for the fall season so there is garden clean up to do as well.

Fortunately the weather has been great. In fact, it’s been very cool. When I went to the dump yesterday I noticed that some trees are beginning to change color! Does this mean the foliage season will begin early?

My hydrangeas, on the other hand, are not blooming. The plants have grown nicely, but the macrophyllas are disappointing. Now I am wondering if I fertilized them too much in Spring. Or was the summer too cool? I’m not sure, but after waiting a year for my beautiful blue hydrangeas to bloom, I have only ONE bud that will be blue. On the other hand my Pinky Winky is looking wonderful! A little lop-sided thanks to the munching from the deer, but it’s full of flowers and they look so pretty. Once I get my photos straightened out I will share my pictures here.
