Under the Weather

“Under the Weather”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana 


Today we had rain off and on all day today, which is good.  Slow, steady rain seeps deep down where the plants can really use it.


I am a little under the weather myself today.  Started feeling sick mid morning and barely made it through the work day.  When I came home, I went straight to bed and slept for six hours.  Hopefully, tomorrow I will be able to post what is going on in the garden.

    Feel better soon — I’ve had a bit of a cold, but nothing too serious. I hope your bug is short-lived.

    Hi Jan-Hope you’re feeling better. I did post my plectranthus pictures on my blog. http://www.athomeinthehills.blogspot.com When you’re feeling better, I do hope that you’ll stop by. Nancy

    Thanks, Nancy and Phillip. I am feeling a little better this morning after about 13 hours of sleep. I don’t know what hit me.

    Thanks, NancyJane, I’ll be checking out your photos.

    I’m glad to hear you are feeling better. I’ve been catching up on my reading, I’ve been away for a little over a week. Your garden is looking wonderful! I like the way the Liriope looks around your beds. The one I have gets too tall.

    It’s been pounding rain here on and off all night up till now: 4 p.m. almost. We need it. I’ve had the asthma thing going on, so I commiserate with you. Hope you’re back up to snuff soon!

    Thanks, Randy. That lirope is the creeping lily turf, but I do not have too much trouble keeping it in bounds.

    Hey, Brenda, it has rain a little today, but more is expected tonight. I am feeling just about back to normal today after a long sleep.
