Good Morning,

I watered the downtown plants on Monday and will do so again today. While watering I had a brief visit with Mike Bendit of CM3 Auto. He said he's polishing up his business with a new sign on the way and plants underneath. I encouraged him to wait to plant until after our hottest days are past for best results. All plants are under stress right now due to the heat and lack of rain. It is possible, I believe, to plant now IF plants are watered generously and not allowed to dry out.

Good Morning,

"Embrace the wonderment and beauty associated with landscape beautification." is what Dr. Charlie Hall, President of America in Bloom and Horticulture Professor at Texas A&M said in a recent email. That's lovely isn't it? I encourage you to do exactly that and to share that wonderment and beauty with you circle of friends and acquaintances.

Good Morning,

Hot and dry. Well, it is July. It is very important that your prized plants are watered regularly. It allowed to dry too much death will ensue. We are watering our downtown plants every other day. Help with watering is always welcome.

I found an article that interviewed Dr. Charlie Hall, President of America in Bloom and Horticulture Professor at Texas A&M, who had the following to say about plants. I know that you may have heard this before, but I think it bears repeating.

Good Morning,

We have a new member. Her name is Theresa Smith. She approached me when I was watering the plants in front of Smokin' R the other day. She cannot attend our meetings because of work, but she volunteered to water EVERY Thursday. She does not use email, but her phone number is 979-236-1608. Please give her a call and welcome her to Columbia Blooms. If your watering date happens to fall on a Thursday call her to tell her she has the day off from watering.

Good Morning,

A volunteer and I refreshed planters and window boxes downtown on Monday with some new plants, soil, and mulch. All of the planters and window boxes on the south side of Brazos have been refreshed.

Gary took a weed eater to the sidewalk area and the weedy area where we planted the first window box.

Marigolds have reseeded themselves and are blooming. Other plants that look really nice are Ruellia, Periwinkle (or Vinca), Portulaca, and Purslane.
