PlantFiles is getting a new look! Just in time for spring, we're rolling out a new look for the best online plants database. It will also work with your smart phones and mobile devices, so now you can take it with you on garden center visits or botanical garden tours. Questions or comments? Please post them here.
I would love to have a chat with Aunt Bett as well, sadly enough she died in the 70's at 80+ years old. The more I write about her, the more I wish she was around to talk with. I have many questions now that I never asked then.
Eyes, so nice to hear from you. I like to think that she would fit right into this world today, with all her wit and wisdom. She truly was special.
Thanks to you both for reading and for commenting.
Great story as usual. Aunt Bett knew her business and I'd trust her doctorin' knowledge completely. I mean, it is the root of modern medicine (no pun intended). Joe Pye was probably what we call a placebo nowadays.
Perhaps in writing you are having "conversations" with Aunt Bett, Sharon.
Interesting that watching JP grow was equated with doing nothing, since it seems it grew so fast,you could really see it grow, so never were they doing nothing. Just watching something grow is something, eh?
Nice story.I have some Joe Pye seeds - I don't know that I've seen it here.
