I decided to have a little test to see what I can glean from these so I went out and bought a few things. It was quite challenging. I thought I would like the results as I would feel I had a good sense of the outcome. Unfortunately, I was totally wrong. The flowers are not only very different but the colors as well. The red and yellow were quite different to what I expected. I will try again and try some other colors.

A. Pansy and Lilac

B. A few varieties of a Rose bush

I could not get a clear shot of the red but the yellow was very close.

A. Hyacinth and Tulip

B. A few varieties of a Lily

This is the same rosebush as in the first picture. Here is one of the tulips. I could not get a clear shot but you can see the color is really yellow.

A. Carnation and Dandelion

B. A few varieties of a Rose bush

Here is the last picture. There were quite a few different colors and colors. The flowers were not as close as the last time. You can see the yellow is not as vivid.

A. Roses and a few Lilies

B. A few varieties of a Rose bush

Again here is the same picture. The yellow has faded and also is not as bright.

In my efforts to find a new garden center, I have discovered another one in Manhatten called West Village Seeds. I have not been there in a while but did a quick visit. When I went to look at the catalogs, I found quite a few different catalogs that were filled with seeds from the same company. They also have all kinds of seeds from different plants. I will try some of their seeds on my new house plant.

What do you think about that? There is also a book they have that is filled with flower arranging and other gardening suggestions.

Today is going to be a day of lots of rain here in the Northeast. I don't know what a lot of rain in New England means, but it could be quite the wet day here.

I have been watching the Weather Channel on TV all day. They have had to have a different map for the United States, because it looks like we have a lot of rain in the East. In fact, they have the word for it... tropical storm. It is supposed to be tropical for the East Coast of the U.S. The storm is moving north so we can avoid it and maybe it will miss us. You just never know with these weather storms. We also have to watch out for tornadoes and all that has to do with storms.

Here are some more pictures of my house plant that I planted from the Garden Catalog.

The days are getting warmer and longer, the weather is getting nicer and so is the time to plant some seeds. We don't get plants until May, so it is a good time to start planting some seeds now.

First, I want to tell you about the seeds that I planted last week. They are all planted and are outside waiting to come up. They are all vegetables and flowers. I have a lot of greens to plant because I just love to eat them.

The first thing I planted are the herbs.

First on the list is Basil. I bought this plant from a seed company called Seed Savers Exchange. They have about 5 varieties and all of them are available for purchase. Some people have all of their herbs in their gardens because it is nice to have fresh basil for when I cook.

Next on the list is Carrot and Parsnip. I have never had these before so this is my first time to plant them. I am not sure if I like them, but I will find out eventually.

The third seed that I planted are Peppers. This is what you plant if you want your garden to have a lot of peppers. I bought these, again, from Seed Savers Exchange. I had read a book that told me that I should plant these every 2 weeks because they do not want to share their space. I planted them out there and we will see how well they do.

Last but not least, is my first tomatoes. I started one from a seed called Temptation. It does have one problem though, you have to pick the fruits off and not eat them. I planted this in a garden pot and now it has a permanent spot on my porch. I will try to get a picture of this one.

I am on my third summer vacation to Florida. In January, I decided to try and become a real life "lifer". I am now 4 years old with the Florida sun! I wanted to be here for longer because I get homesick for the cold weather and the snow. However, I will not be spending the next two years in Florida. I am still sad but at least I have the rest of the years of growing up to look forward to. I am really enjoying Florida and I have learned a lot from living here.

First of all, the weather is a nice warm weather. However, there are the cold nights in winter. I have not realized how much I enjoy the cool weather until I am here. I went to a few local malls, and you are surprised at what they look like. I did not expect that this state was full of malls. The malls are usually built in areas where the houses and businesses are not near or at the main places in the area. You can usually tell if it is a mall because you can usually see the buildings that are usually malls (shops and restaurants).

I live right on the beach in Palm Bay, Florida. I like the sun and the beach.

This picture is of my room at my Aunt Tommie's house. The room I was sleeping in was painted a soft yellow. I just thought it was the coolest thing. I did a lot of painting in my room.

I think the biggest thing I enjoy about Florida is the life. It is very different. It is not like where I live, Michigan. It is different. I am talking different about the things that happen here.

In Michigan, I don't think much of anything really happens. People get married, then have kids, and then one day they get on their death beds and say, "Do you think I lived a good life?" Florida people get married and then have babies and kids and dogs and cats. They just live in Florida. I never thought I would be interested in this lifestyle, but I do. I like
