Well, it's just March 14th, but the weather outside is absolutely Beautiful, finally got some Brugs, moved up to the back Porch, next I can move to the GH
they look like they can sure use being outside, for some reason, a couple of them are really leafed out in the Basement, while others still look like Sticks
maybe it's the ones from really good stock
last year I tended my cuttings carefully and was waiting for the 'y' to form. Well, my only surviver is the big tall one that has new little growths all up and down the stem. It went outside today to enjoy the fresh air and 79* weather.
Is it time to begin the feedings?
I am glad you had at least one survive, I also put some Brugs outside, our temps today was 81, tommorrow it will be about the same
with the night time 55 degrees, it is time to start Feeding them, Tuesday is the First day of Spring, have a good Evening
Birdie you are not alone, I have grown Brugs for years, last year I had heart attache and my children convinced me to get rid of them as they were a lot of work, ( I had 97) well I MISS THEM so I tried starting more with cuttings, and seeds and each one have failed, and I have no idea why, I have 5 that survived including one that was named for me, but I need more cuttings, or buy some plants. I just can't give them up.
The biggest Brug killer in winter is a combination of cold temperatures and wet soil. This is the perfect breeding ground for the fungus that causes root rot. Brugs do better with a little benign neglect. I always seem to lose the ones I baby too much.
During winter dormancy, it is import that the root systems are strong and healthy. The energy stored in the roots is what is going to keep the plant alive during dormancy. Cuttings that were started late fall or early winter don't have much of a root system so the mortality rate can be high. The best thing to do with newly rooted cuttings is to keep them growing during their first winter. Provide temperatures over 50ºF. 50ºF should be the minimum temperature. Fertilize lightly and keep them under light to get good strong stems. You still have to keep the cuttings on the dryish side of moist because it is still possible to get root rot. Warmer room temperatures help against this.
Of course, you can go beyond benign neglect. I did that last year and the result was the loss of over 75 Brugs.
I started having a variety of health problems early August, 2010 that required hospitalization and couldn't care for my plants. I was able to talk the gentleman who helps me with the ranch to water my Brugs for me, but he couldn't do it often enough to keep many from dying. During one of those hospital stays I injured my back for which I had to have surgery late May, 2011. Because of a rare genetic problem, I have to avoid most pain killers and I ended up back in the hospital several more times this past summer. I mention this because it has a direct baring on the loss of over 75 Brugs. This was a bit too much neglect. What makes it more painful is that I bought them all. I'm out several thousand dollars worth of Brugs.
The loss this past summer actually had its beginnings last winter. We had a near record cold winter for this part of Texas. We had a rolling blackout early, early one morning. By the time I discovered the blackout, the temperature in the greenhouse had dropped to below freezing, probably for several hours. This is what my Brug looked like last March. All the Brugs along the outside edge died but most of the others came back. Because I couldn't care for them properly, they started summer in a weakened condition. Then in the summer, the combination of a record drought, hot weather and lack of humidity, my Brugs went into summer dormancy. Most lost all their leaves and branches. When it was all over and I counted up my losses, I had lost over 75. I overwintered a few that appeared to have some living roots. When I pull them outside later this month, I will have to check the roots again because so far only one of those has sent out new growth.
My back has recovered although I will have to rely on help to move the pots for me, but I will be able to go out and water and fertilize the survivors by myself. I mourn the Brugs I lost especially since many favorites were among those lost. The survivors are truly tough.
I hope you are in good health yourself. I love the tulips! We don't get enough cold for me to have tulips here. We didn't get a late frost this year so it looks like I'll see some peaches and plums on my trees. Now if I can just talk the squirrels into letting me have a few when they ripen. LOL.
Well darn it, I just lost three of my new brugs to weather, I put them outside yesterday when they said we would get rain, and I was going out for the day, that rain turned into a mighty storm with LARGE hail that even closed the Interstate for an hour. and it shredded those brugs to pieces and smashed the pots, now the temps are down in the low 50s
Looking good there, Love the Iris, Tommorrow, I will have to take Photo's of my Critters, I have found a new use for my GH, now that the Brugs, are in the Ground, I ran out of Space, so I just potted some up in Bigger Pots.
BTW, it's good to see you post
I've not forgotten you my friend...
I have a brug bud formed and skirt is showing but no color and of coarse NOID, I could boot my rump sometimes. losing tags but I know it will be beautiful. It has several blooms on it...
Love you all.
Blessed Easter to you all...
Pretty Brug, I am right here, I also have some photo's of my Critter's, also I have been busy, getting new Carpet, I also have been up at the Hospital
it's not me this time, it's my MIL, she is having a really rough time right now.
well here are some photo's, this is the Baby Rabbit, that I saved, the next photo is of the other one
I just came in from sitting out brugs. WWhheewwww!! I did get warm. If they all bloom, it is going to be heavenly...
Look at all your baby's. i love it. Did you inherit the chicks from the grand kids????
Sure has been quiet over here. folks must be out in the gardens...
no I didn't inherit the Chicks, I bought them so the GK's could enjoy them without having to care for them, I have all the Brugs planted in the ground, well all
that I have space for, then I have some planted in big pots, Yes it will be heavenly when they all Bloom
I agree everyone must be Gardening
Very cute chicks. I've never heard of hens that lay Easter colored eggs!! If you have any extra Brug pieces, I'd love to root and plant again. the only survivor was the 5 ft tall one that bloomed last year. One's better than none though!
they are Arcanums, they are so cute, the one looks like it has eye makeup, Hey I got my first egg Yesterday, it was a small egg, so I am pretty sure it was the
Bantam Hen, that laid the egg, well have a great evening
I don't know much about raising chickens as my first and only attempt ended in disaster — neighborhood dogs got into their pen — but my son has about 50 of the Ameraucanas who are similar to Araucanas and also lay blue eggs in various shades. He must not have the pure breed because some of his chickens produce green eggs and various other shades. http://www.mypetchicken.com/chicken-breeds/Ameraucana-B5.aspx
I'll stick with cattle. Coyotes don't usually bother them although we have begun to have a problem with vultures and Mexican Eagles.
I am so excited!!! on my war back from picking up the newspaper from the drive, a wondrous thing appeared before me. An old dead looking Brug stick (a Y!) that I actually had meant to discard...was sporting little baby leaves all up and down its "dead stick body".
I can't help but wonder if others ,long gone into the woodland garden area, had potential life remaining somewhere in a deep hidden cell. ;-( Oh well, now I have two and will focus on gratitude for them. Wonder what they are??
Never, never throw away a slightly dead-looking Brug! Check for feeder roots instead. As long as there are live feeder roots atill attached to the buried trunk, there is a good chance that the Brug will put out new growth. I've had some come back after being seemingly dead 6 mos. Just keep the root ball slightly moist to almost dry so you don't drown the roots and then wait. Only when the feeder roots are brown and falling apart can you truly say your Brug is dead.
Is it possible that my first two brugs(planted from cuttings this spring) could already be getting ready to bloom? The Frosty Pink is only about two feet tall but definitely has a Y and the new growth is looking "different".
The Ecuador Pink, also from cutting this spring, is not quite at a V but is growing like crazy. Everyone says brugs require patience so I'm pleasantly surprised about the fast pace. Must be the heat and rain, in an area prone to drought this is a perfect spring.
Luckily, you received cuttings taken from above the mother plant's "Y". Your plants are behaving normally. The only growing tissue your Brugs have at this point is flowering tissue. Later, as your Brugs' root systems grow and mature, your plants will send out new vegetative growth from below ground. That growth will be straight and tall. That is the growth that tries your patience. Each cultivar is different, but some may grow up to 12' before they put out their first "Y" and bloom.
Never pinch out the tip of those vegetative growth shoots in hopes that they will branch and bloom sooner. The snipped shoot will branch but it will not set blooms any sooner. In fact, it will only slow blooming. The vegetative cycle is genetically set. Snipping the tips re-sets the cycle back to zero.
OT (sorry)- I want all of y friends here and on other threads to know just how much I have learned from you and how special each and every one of you re to me.
It is looking grim on me renewing my DG membership in a couple weeks, I have had much increased medical & pharmacy charges, and find myself hanging on a wing and a prayer.
Good evening everyone
I am so glad everyone. likes my photo's, there should be a lot more, I have Buds everywhere, Sheri, I so hope you get to be on DG's, you're very dear to all of us
well have a great Evening, everyone
WOW!!! Those sure are some beautiful flowers! What is the red one with leaves that look like a Christmas cactus? Oh, & yes I must have an angel as my membership has been renewed till 2013. Thank you Angel, whoever you are!!
Wow!! Beautiful...bet it smells wonderful, especially in the early morning around your house Hopefully some day (soon) I will be able to have even just 1 blooming Brug here.
A neighbor on my short morning walk has a number in her yard, and I'm awaiting the 1st flush. That fragrance that must be in heaven is..such
a wonderful morning gift from above.
Heading out around 6:30am to go to VA. to a DG round-up on the Blue Ridge Mountains. I'm very excited. This will be my 2nd one and many of the members who were at the NC one a couple months ago will be there.
I water mine every morning, they look good, but are stressed, not a bud anywhere, I am sure when it cools down, both of us, will have plenty of Blooms.
for some reason, the Cerus has to be 3yrs old, before they Bloom.
Hey, it's good to hear from you
Now I understand the Night Blooming Cerus parties to watch the bloom open. I used to have a rather large mature cactus in the Cerus family that bloomed a very big, very similar blossum...one night only. Oh how I have missed that annual show.
that's great news, I sure hope you have Blooms soon, I think you can take a stem, let it dry out for a week, then plant it in soil, I had a Crown of thorns, that had a broken
stem, I put it in soil, it rooted, then I shared it with my neighbor, it's growing well for her, we finally got some Rain for the last 2 days, I have at least 4 Brugs with Buds
so hopefully soon, I'll have photo's
Looked closer today and buds are already formed, that couldn't have happened overnight, must have been there before. Maybe they did form overnight, our weather has been perfect for it: rainy afternoons and hot days. Everything is growing so lush, and just a little ways from here is drought. Thank my lucky stars.
glad to hear it, Congratulations, on your Buds, everything is lush here also. when rain isn't in the forecast, I water every morning at 7:30
it really does them good, so they can stand the afternoon sun, I also have a Plumeria about to Bloom, anyday now
I am hoping to see the first orchid cactus and the firstbloms of phicks cross I grew from a seed I purchased. no rain here so watering almost 6 hours a day total for all gardens. I don't water the grass out front as no one else does on our block. we all have burmuda out there. My back yard is lush because I am paying out the ying yang to water. I am even draining the washer rinse water outside now. insidebasement garden is where peach versi, milk n honey, and the phicks cross are. I have buds on betty marshall outside. Here is Kaitlyn, bless her heart, she blomed all winter until april.
She looks to be gearing up for some flushes as soon as it rains I bet thee are buds. Silly rain lillys think it is raining because it gets cloudy and then I water. All the rain keeps going past and around us. *sigh*
new arbor on south east fence, since all the trees and 11 ft shrubs have been whacked out by the neighbors. It is very sunny ou there, but this area has shade by 1 pm
here is the other arch on the north east corner of the patio.. we moved it from the middle to the corner so we could walk out that way off the pario. I have built shade with living walls of sunflowers and morning glorys. the brugs on the pario are opposife this arch.
This used to be the bean patch. We got almost a bushel of beans this year . now it is full of tomatoes, peppers, moring glorys , maranthus, lilac de fleur moon flower, mariglds, zinnia, sunflowers, and a number of other things. including my banana tree.
I bulit this living wall of vines to shade the squash... it seems to work.. 4 o clocks are opposite this view.
I will show you the brugs outside next post. sorry to hog the thread.
Nice,Nice, & Nice, it's really Good to see you Posting, with all your Nice Green Things, I am Glad to see you Hog the Thread
feel free to anytime, I have a Double that's about to Open, it has 3 Blooms, I'll post it as soon as it Blooms
we're lacking the Rain also, I have been watering, I had a Cross by Patricia Watson, with all kinds of Buds, well with
the Heat, almost all of them fell off, you gotta love the four o'clock they Bloom all the time
Elizabloomsbeth - You always have so many beautiful and breath taking blooms. Thankyou so much for sharing them with us. I have been praying for a NB Cerius for a long time. NOt a single Brug bloom yet. How often do you feed yours, and what do you use???
Thank you for the nice comments, mostly I use Miracle Grow, I usually feed them once every 3 weeks, I also use 10 10 10 in the bottom of the hole when I put them in the ground
in April, my Best Friend, told me that's what works, it sure does, Thank you Karen
Before it gets cold,cold, I can help you out with the NBC, I started mine from 1 leaf, they are so easy to root, they're also easy to care for in the winter, just
don't over water them
jerodsmom wrote:Wow Elizabeth, You have so much going on in your garden. Your blooms are lovely !!
I agree! I had to bring my brugs in they were struggling this summer, betty marshall is budded out, and kaitlyn is blooming outside only 4 blooms, but I will take them, your blooms are all gorgeous, Elizabeth. I only have a few brugs now, most of mine failed this summer didn't get them inside fast enough. raining nw, wish I would have some cerus blooming, might be anoither year before I see any.. still no double in this house yet..
I am so Glad you got to see my Pix, here is something, that you crossed, I did surgery just to make sure, sure enough I counted 5 skirts, now Klein Lady crossed
with Genevive, has many more Buds, so hopefully they will all open, you have done a wonderfull job with that cross
I got my mums last year for 5 cents at end of season, they are in ground in the new area, budding out. I am so kacited to see them make it thru the summer. Betty Marshall is prolly blooming now, I need to go down and take a look at her.
you're way ahead of me, I had a morning Glory tree, that didn't make it, sorry you didn't get to see the Bloom, that's always disappointing.
yesterday, a lady stopped by, she bought a jade from me, she also wanted to know about the Brugs, so I gave her a clipping, she wanted
some Prickly Pear, so she traded some Giant EE's for them
my Prickly Pear, blooms yellow with Red in the center, these have to be left outside, they have long spines, with little Red like hairs
I have to seperate them with tongs, they make a great living fence, also you don't have to worry about anyone making off with them
does the morning glory tree do well inside, in the winter?
LOL I know how you feel, Rox, I want all the doubles and triples she has shown, I have yet to see one, it won't be this year for flame either. he got deleafed and whacked and is now a root ball waiting for next year.
I have two brugs left in ground, four root balls in a tub outside, and several small babys I started way back in early summer going of maya, dola, and peach versi. we will see if they make it or not.
soon there will be one last show, I have several Brugs with Buds about to Bloom, I have taken all the one's that wasn't about
to Bloom, up in pots, ready to go in the Basement, I won't put them down there, until the temps drop.
Santa Rosa, is I know 12 ft. tall, & just full of Buds
I am steady digging, Saturday, the Brugs, will all be in the Basement, so I am hoping, that all the Blooms open before then, anyway
the night time temps, are starting to drop, Thank you for the nice comment
I will taking all my Brugs in soon, I'll see what it looks like after I take it up, do you have Charles Gramaldi, I am not sure if my spelling is correct
but I am looking for that one. here are some new Photo's, had to show my Mums
I will sending out your Peach seeds & Prickly Pear , this Tuesday, I have a bunch of Buds, just waiting to open
I'll get photo's of all of them before taking them up, Monday night I think I might have to cover them with sheets
the Temps will be really dipping down low, then rebound Tuesday, I am sorry that you're sick, I hope you have a
a few more Blooms, the temps have dropped a little, so I have been, taking some already potted up brugs, canna's & some houseplants to the basement
I really like & dislike this time of year, the GH is stuffed also, well here are some more photo's, I took while taking a break
all nice and green and very beautiful, Well Done! Son and hubby managed to get everything in to the basement and Garage today.
I set a bug fogger off in the garage, had already treated everything to go into the basement gardens... the huge banana now sits fuly inside the sunken sump pump well, since it doesn't ever get used. perfect fit, but a buggar to get out of garden, trollyed thru the house and down the 13 steps to the garden area.
I totally understand that, I had a helper yesterday, getting a lot of the potted up Brugs, to the basement, I still have a couple huge one's that I also
need help with, my SIL, as well as my DD will help this Thursday, I hate to see the yard without Brugs, but it's that time of year
I am so glad you had helpers
Here is what I have blooming... A puppy!!! Hello Elizabeth. I am Back. right now I have nothing blooming but one Xena with one bloom. Best bloomer I have had this year is Painted Lady and one called Serendipity. Have them in their pots in the shade. so they did very well. My camellia is blooming already. I think it is early but they are...
Dahlias are blooming.
Anyhow this will give you an idea. How are the kitties doing???
Love and miss you.
that would be great, I will be taking up, Angels Exotic this weekend, I will cut you a piece of it, in trade, for the CG, Dmail me your address
I will Dmail you mine. Monday should be good
the Kitty's moved in with my DD, she just had to Sepi, she seems really happy there, both my DD's moved out, all there is here now, is DH & myself
I like having the whole house to ourselves, I like your puppy, it's good to have you back, Love & missed you also
well Ladies, it was a full day, today, all my Brugs, are in the basement, I was really Lucky, to have my DD & SIL to help me out, now I have to get
some more soil, to finish potting them up, next year, I will really try to make them standards, the Bushes take up to much room.
now my yard has the Dessert look
love that bloom, I have grown so many gingers from seed and not one bloom. I gave a costa to my sis in law and she got it to bloom, go figure.
Front and back sure looks bare with out the plant jewelry.
Well I just got rid of one of my White Brugs, Good thing, I had way to many Whites, I gave it to a sweet Lady, that works at Lowes, she couldn't get
over the Scent from the one's Blooming in the basement, as soon as I get them all potted up, I will take Photo's of my Basement GH.
Have a Great Day
Got this note From Dee's Daughter...
Beth McGinness Like
I am her middle daughter Beth and I'm sorry to have to say but we lost mom on August 30th to a massive heart attack. I don't know if you all knew she was fighting breast cancer and was on her 3rd round of chemo. I think the medicine was just to much for her heart. :0(
Mom was only 58 yrs old. I'm sorry I know she loved gardening and she love her garden sights I wish I had gotten a green thumb like my mom had. She could make anything grow. Flowers brought her so much joy. heart thank you for caring about her. Tell everyone to remember her fondly and think about her when the flowers bloom. She will be your angel now as well as ours
I am so sorry for the loss of a dear Plant friend.
We miss you and Love you Dee...♥♥♥
scuse me while I cry.. I really wanted Dee to see the things she sent me. I guess she can see everything now..
sister called me, the cancer tumors are again building fluid and she now has a quarter lung capacity and her heart is full of fluid so they are going to drain it next week, i am frustrated because I can't go there to be with her..her fighting spirit is amazing, she says she will do anything to stay alive a little longer, and she isn't feeling any pain, just the suffocating part, and she says as long as she doesn't feel like she is dying, she will keep on doing what ever she can.. silly girl is working out in her yard tommorrow in the rain with her oxygen tank LOL
Tough Enough!!!!! All we can do is love each other while we can and LET each one KNOW it. So Now I'm saying I LOVE YOU MY GARDENING GIRLFRIENDS, WITH ALL MY HEART ♥
Yes, I'm yelling it from on top of my Computer, yelling to keep from Crying. Miss you Dee, We do love you still...
Have another Friend Alert, Needs prayes. Hope you don't mind Elizabeth but Doris is sick and in need of prayers...
Name: Doris Klene
Charlene this is Doris's daughter she wants me to let you know she was taken to the emergency room last Monday She threw up a lot of blood and passed a lot of blood so far they are still doing tests. please ask her friends for prayers, Thanks.
Praying for Doris, God Bless her.
Lovely potting bench I love love love it.
love the gorgeous brug blooms too!
busy outside all daytearing down and pulling up and all that stuff. planted a few new viburnums and crape myrtles, a white beauty berrry bush to go with the bright purple and some cuttings of the fragrant white passion vine I found out in the country, I put them at the base of both arbors, along with the native purple passion vine.My night blooming jasmine and the night blooming jessimine are making the otherwise smelly basement really nice to smell now. LOL .
I have a new cross of four o clock, waited all summer to see if it took.. so proud of it..
the yellow rose and the dahlias are going bonkers right now..
Ms. Doris is home. They sent her home yesterday. Was still tired. Believe it was caused by a cyst that had burst in her , so hopefully she will have no more problems...
Beautiful pictures girls. Love them. Nice potting bench, Elizabth.
Love and hugs
Beautiful, I love all of them, I wish passion vine would grow here, I love that one
Thank you, for an update on Doris, our Prayers was answered, so glad she's back home now
that potting Bench, really amazed me, all Hubby did, was see the photo in Country living Magazine, then he made it from the Photo
he can make all kinds of things, if he wanted to, if we can get passed, that round to it thing
Love & Hugs back at ya
Elizabeth you know passiflora incarnata will grow in OH. I have a HUGE vine in my back yard. It dies to the ground in winter and then takes over it's spot in the summer. I even get a few fruits to eat. I can send you some if you want, but it does take over, you have to be sure you have a place for it.
O.K Ladies, send them seeds, I have a fence on the other side of my yard, I would love to see that there, How Pretty is that, love the photo's plus Fruit
Great, I will have tomorrow of what I got today from Lowes, 3 huge aborvities for $5.00 each, Love the end of the Season Sales
really pretty, elizabeth. I just had to strip mite infested leaves off most my brugs, poor kaitlyn is all blooms now and no leaf. I am going to set off another doom fogger and order some forbid. I HATE MITES. it is a highly effective mitacide, and now I am ready to spend the big bucks just to rid my whole yard and gardens of those things.
I can totally understand, that,I am trimming a lot of my Brugs, do you have Rosalla? it turned into a bush for, so I did major Surgery on it, I also have a Pretty Pink one
that I lost the Tag, it was the only one that Grew into a standard, I can fit about 6 in a Video mailer, if you're interested? I had to run back to Lowes yesterday, Roger
wanted one of those Huge Palms, so I called Deanna, she's one of the managers, to ask if I could buy it for $10.00 she said sure, so now it's in my Living room
will post pix later
sounds nice, I think I will wait until spring to try any cuttings.. I have terrible luck with cuttings over winter.. all the cuttings I took in august are already rooted for send outs, so that seems to work best for me..
I still do not have a yellow... I did have a jean pasco and and a CG, but sent them away last year for some reason..
what kind of palm?? king palm, parlor palm, qween palm, sago palm... LOL
Very pretty. I have the small palms. that looks like a larger one.
These Morning glories are called "Hige" I hope to have seeds. Petals remind me of feathers...Very pretty bloom.
My Serendipity getting ready to bloom. Buds are forming and looking so nice. We are cooler and have been getting rain and they love that!!!
Hugs and Nuzzles
Charleen and critters
Higes are beautiful.. I grew several last year and years past.. this summer, tho... none of the seeds I planted came up.
Oh, I was just wondering about the palms, I do not grow them, but my DD does, she has inherited a very old collection from her great grandfather.
my red hige, red yarrow , yellow african marigold, and more
look at all your Beauty's, Love it, I went yesterday got Roger another Palm for the other side of the couch, it makes the living room look
very Tropical, poor guy, today I put him to work, putting insulation over the crawl space opening.
here is what else is Blooming.
that is so very Pretty, amazing is right, I have Birgit on the way, small one, so it will be next Summer before it's big
enough to Bloom, Brugs are amazing, I now have the Desert theme going on in my yard
The Versa Peach I was showing, I got a close up of the double and the single, both are so beautiful...
I also have a white one, Noid, but a nice sized bloom. I have some of my brugs planted into old tires...
1. single VP
2. photo of VP
3. White noid
4. Brugs plant in tires
4. Double VP
Just Beautiful, all of them, Talk about Recycling, Great idea, I am so Glad to see you have Blooms
I hope your nice weather continues. I love seeing your Photo's.
wait until you see my Desert Theme, you won't believe it's the same yard
Debra, what is a CP??? Sometimes I can't remember crap!!!! Must be today!!! Carnivorous plants??
They do down here girl but I don't know about Kansas. You could experiment. Leave one out side and bring some inside. for Backup in case it doesn't...
I have some more photo's of what's Blooming, also my timer, when I am really trying to get things done, it works, you done have to sit it forward in
the Spring or Back in the fall, which should be soon
very nice... my timers are all set as if the sun rises and sets across the yard east to west.. since all the plants in all the rooms are in the same direction, I thought it would make them happy. and, it does. a few off towards evening and then the last go off and they rest up. Pretty color on that brug there..
I went out and yesterday we got the potted brugs into little greenhouse. Brought some cuttings in and have them trimmed now. So no jungle look, too much but still have lots of plants inside.
Girl, you wouldn't like our weather at all, when it's 45 degrees, it feels warm if the sun is out, but windy & cloudy it's cold
it looks like we will have a warm up this weekend, it's a good thing, I still have some plants that need to go in the ground
some hens & chicks, I am doing a rock garden. I'll post Pic's as soon as I get it done, have a great Evening, stay warm
Everyone is correct about the Bulbs, as long as the ground isn't frozen, you can plant Bulbs
Debra, I know you're still Busy, as all of us are, I have a Love Hate relationship with this weather, I love the Color's of the Leaves
Turning, but the Cold, I sure don't like that.
Charleen, are you still having nice weather? my oldest GS Lives in Ga.
I hope you had a really nice day, today, it wasn't bad weather wise, here, I know it was warmer there, going on a road trip
tomorrow, to visit a Friend, I always look forward to that, she's more like a little Sister, than just a Friend, I'll check back in
when I am Home, Have a Great Evening.
I had a Great time, visiting, as always, I love to go Visit, we exchanged Christmas Gifts, I always like to have everyone
Taken care Before Thanksgiving, so I have $ to shop on Black Friday.
anyway, I got back home, then went to the Breeder's Cup on Saturday, I won on the last Race, so it was a
Great Weekend. have a Great Day
Blooming in greenhouse
Blooming in house
Strawberries and cream with seed pods.
Still out in yard Monster and One of Geo. Hilders Brugs. Can't remember name. It for his Grand daughter, Autumn's Glow may be it!
that is a Beautiful sight, esp. the yellow one
Good to see you
is everyone else, working in the Yard while it's Beautiful out? I have almost got all the Leaves up, I bag them
up, then use them for insulation against the foundation of the Kitchen, well have a Great Evening
I am now using a carpet knife, to take all the Leaves off my Brugs, after you cut your clippings, you can keep them in a 5 gal. Bucket
using an air stone, to keep the water from smelling bad, you'll be surprized how quickly they root, with oxygen in the water
also you want to change water at least once a week

some reason or other, I have lost them, but P&C, does really well for me.
