9/30/12 Stuck in the House

It rained most of yesterday and all of today and more is predicted for tomorrow. We have had only short walks around the neighborhood. Kelley, of course, doesn't mind getting wet as long as there is no thunder and lightening ( so far so good on that score). Kelley deals with the boredom by sleeping a lot. I have been trying to straighten out my computer ( with mixed success) and this afternoon took a few pictures inside.

When it rained a few days ago I used the down time to re-pot some long neglected cactus. Some of them were so happy they put forth flowers.

I have had these plants a long time and many have lost or faded tags. I think this is a Mammillaria

 Mammillaria longimamma uberiformis

 We have had two frost warnings ( but no frost yet) so I brought several pepper plants inside to finish ripening. This is a cross by a friend of mine - Crvenperka x CAP 1546 - the pods are an inch or so long.

Another cross by the same friend - Bhut Jolokia x Galapagoense - this pod is 3 inches long.

Perhaps tomorrow  we will get some breaks in the predicted rain or we may just have to get soaked.


  1. John,

  2. Thanks Julie- They nor the peppers could survive a Maine winter.
