As georgiagarden3 said it so well, we'll start this one with her quote from earlier today.
First step ; face the group & repeat after me,
"My name is ________and I am a certified coleus addict
Step Two...Close your eyes and take a deep, cleansing breath. As you inhale think of all the positive things in your life (other than Coleus). Sunshine, rain, time to garden...imagine your own list of positive things.
Step Three....admit the Truth about how many named
Coleus are growing in your home,garden,or nursery
also admit to the Pinching in public.
Step Four: Take one dose of COLASE, a recommended CALCIUM fortified product. The time you spend in the bathroom is GUARANTEED to keep you out of area gh's, and will inhibit pinching (Public/private), or coleus gardening of any kind. It WILL, however, facilitate your carrying out Step 3.
Step Five: Complain about your coleus not surviving the winter in cold zone 5 so all the addicts in the tropical zones will feel sorry for you and send you cuttings.
Step Six: Buy cargo pants and photographer's vest so you can pinch your own cuttings just in case your addicted friends get sick of hearing you whine.
Step Seven: Feel sorry for yourself; eat chocolate.
Step 8: Watch what everyone posts and keep lists for trading or begging in the fall.
Step 9: Refrain from going to online Coleus shops like Rosy Dawn Gardens... but, if you do, have someone hold on to your credit cards.
STEP #10: Whenever you anticipate driving past a GH, put on a pair of horse blinders (keep in the glovebox), to keep your eyes focused only the road straight ahead.
Step 11 ,Cross Country Coleus Connection!!
STEP #12 Make sure a tree falls on your vehicle while you are on your way to the GH.
Step # 14, NEVER ORDER FROM GLASS HOUSE WORKS!!!! LOL
Begin saying "Coleu" rather than "Coleus"
Boy!!! do we have a LOOONG way to go.......
