Sharon, I look forward to reading your articles more than anything else on DG. I love reading about the way things were way back in the day and it reminds me of when I tagged along in the garden with my grandmother who could plant a dry stick and make it grow and bloom...

Thank you for another wonderful article. Can't wait for the next one!

Funny about planting a dry stick. I planted some 4 o'clocks earlier and picked up a stick from a discarded pile where I had trimmed one of the butterfly bushes, plus there were other small sticks that I piled in the same spot. So I marked the spot where the 4 o'clocks were with one of the sticks. I went out over the weekend to check on the 4 o'clocks. The stick that marks it is now full of green leaves, a new butterfly bush.

If I had meant to plant that BB there, it probably would not have grown! I don't think we have a bit of control over Mother Nature...she has a mind of her own, and throws in a smile or two of her own.

Thanks for writing, nice to know when I write something worth reading.
Hope your garden is growing well these days.
