As usual, I had to read every word and giggle all the way through. You are a master of plants and words and thank you for sharing both.

God Bless.

Man, just when you think you are so far gone as to be beyond any reasonable hope for help ... someone else shows you that you can, in fact, seep to much deeper depths than you thought were ever possible and here I thought the ladies who are over in seed snatching were slightly deranged, while at the same time being at least slightly amusing.

They do shoot canoes, don't they?

OMG, this was the absolute BEST plant story I have ever read and I see so much of myself in there! Especially about the spending on the plants... credit, hiding pots, lol. I would have died and gone to heaven to get the cull packs you are talking of. All I can think of is, what store around here would DO that and where can I get my hands on them? Lol you are a master garden story writer and I enjoyed this so much. Thank you!

Thanks all for your kind critiques and empathy with my gardening addiction! It is nice to know I am not alone in my obsession with plants.

Shoe -- if you want to know how VERY deranged I am, you can find my "Dead Piano" story in this thread, along with some other folks' hilarious home and garden misadventures.

Jeremy, you rule! There should be more people like you, (well there are and they are all here at DG) The world would be a much better place! Hope to meet you next time I come to Jax.

After reading what must be the funniest thread I have ever read in the forums ( Dead Piano)...I have to thank you for a sore tummy (all the belly laughs!)

" I could see myself in him in a few more decades, the wild times long behind me"...
that had me falling out of my chair! Oh what a character you must be! What a great sense of humour so many of you have...remind me to tell you about the "Great Elephant Poo Heist" in the next couple of days tummy can't take any more right now!

Very funny, Dyson!! Thanks for the link. Probably the response most of us would have in that situation.

I can see the story continuing --- the wife comes home and finds me crying. "What's wrong?," she asks sympathetically. I begin to choke out the words through my heavy sobs..."I was hiding in the garage, I saw..." Whereupon, before I can finish the sentence, she comes clean and admits all her indiscretions only to have me say, "That's not what I'm crying about! It's my mealy-infested Ficus! (but I do want a divorce)."
