I was exploring new blogs via the WordPress Reader when I discovered some very bad news.
What was the nature of this bad news?
By the way, they stole a lot of my blog posts too (From the looks of things, Tygpress has been helping themselves to all of my blog posts).
The blog administrator of I Do Run was the one who brought this to my attention with their blog post, Please Read — Your Blog May Have Been Harvested!.
There was no way that I was going to let Tygpress get away with their transgression. So, I filed a DMCA takedown request on Digital Ocean’s Report Abuse section of their website (Digital Ocean is the hosting provider for the unscrupulous blogger that…

It is the beginning of August and for us it is the middle of Summer but the heath and drought have ruined a lot of plants so now it looks like Autumn.
It is the second year in a row, I think we should start looking for plants that tolerate more heath and more drought.
I took this picture 2 days ago and now this tree is almost bare, all the yellow leafs have gone with the wind.
My gernaniums look all death, luckily I know they’ll come back when we have had a lot of rain and lower temperatures.
Even the hen’s and chicks are burned !!!! I have put most of my plants in pots in the shade but as we may not use the waterhose cos of the drought, I have to water them by hand, a huge job.
Have a great weekend all !
Begonia’s, sooo pretty !! They love a shady place in your garden, in a pot or in full soil. However you can keep them in a sunny spot too but then they need a lot of water.
They are bulb plants and not frost hardy so in Autumn before the frost begins you take the plant inside and keep it cool but frost free or you harvest the bulbs. To harvest the bulbs you get the plant out of the pot (or soil), remove as much of the soil as you can, put it in a garage on a newspaper and let the leafs go yellow and dry, then cut the leafs off, then put the bulbs in a newspaper, one by one and put them in a cardboard box. In Spring you give the bulbs a new pot and fresh soil and keep them light but frost free before putting them in your garden after the frost is gone. The bulbs can reach a very old age.
Are they not pretty as a picture ???They bloom for a very long time.
