August gardening

the little miniature water lily in the tub on the deck has had a few blooms.  Its too bad they last only a few days. 
 The yellow plums are actually quite abundant.  We are eating them as fast as we can with ice cream, or the best -- mango swirl frozen yogurt.  Figs are ready,too.  Tomorrow we have some of them.
This cone flower (echinea) is holding its blooms for a long while.  This is one of the planters that I put on the deck last year.  This one holds far too many plants that are butterfly flowers. I made it up following the directions in a magazine for butterfly flowers.  I have a few more planters on the deck.  The willows are from the rock and alpine gardens show.  These special little willows like a lot of water, so I am not sure if they will survive a move to the back garden.  Since the vegetable garden is hopeless due to all the tree roots it might become my extended rockery and catch all plants place. I might want to move this crowded butterfly planter out into the garden, along with the big delphinium, from another pot.  The deck is just looking too cluttered with all the pots.  I must think about down sizing, too... and give away pots, as well as books and so many things that really should be cleaned up.

With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of plagorism
or copyright infringement? My website has a
lot of completely unique content I've either written myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any ways to help stop content from being ripped off? I'd certainly appreciate it.

Yes, I have had people take my photos without permission and load them to their own account. I don't see any photos on your site. On photos we can add watermarks and then chase people who use them without permission or payment to try to get some settlement under the copyright infringement laws. This is a lot of bother, with time and money spent; and that is why, I think, people get away with stealing copyrighted material.
I see your site uses cookies. I did not read all of your 'privacy policy' and I did not find your home page. I do not know how you could protect your information. Perhaps you could put a visible statement on the posts that this is your intellectual material and it is not to be used without your permission. Research the laws on it through a lawyer if you are serious about this question... and NOT anonymously by spamming other blogs.
