Come September has just been released. Order it now!
In Virginia Bickel?s second book, she turns from
historical fiction to mystery. Come September is the
story of Daniel Lindsey?s quest to identify the young
woman found unconscious in front of his store, and to
find out what she was doing on Mesa Street, in El
Paso, Texas. She brings to this genre her skill with
character development and dialogue. You won't be

This picture was taken on the Wednesday the 9th of May
2001. It show the stage of growth that the standard fuchsias of Waveney
Sunrise are now at. For this time of year they are looking good. I'm
hoping to do well with these plants later in the year. Bearing in mind
that they won't be allowed to flower until the end of July, beginning of
August, the heads of the plants should be three times bigger by the date
of the shows.
This is another shot of the Standards taken from the
other side of the garden. The ivy-covered building they are growing
against is my outhouse, in which I keep all my garden tools, pots,
composts, and my bikes. There are lots of blackbirds and thrushes making
nests in the thick ivy on top of the building. I spend many hours in
summer, just sitting out and watching them feeding their young. The window
to the right is the window of my spare bedroom.
These are two plants of Star of Pink and are looking
really good for the month of May. I took one of these two plants to the
Moorgreen Show last year and won the award for the Best Fuchsia Exhibit in
the show. By the looks of them now, I could be doing the same this year
unless something unforeseen happens. What looks like a very good plant can
soon be ruined in a number of ways. It can be attacked by aphids, vine
weevils or other pests. It can catch a disease like mildew in a wet
summer. You can maybe miss watering it for a couple of times, or
over-water it. All of these things can spoil what is potentially a show
winning plant. So from now until the show date, you need to take great
care of them.
