I'm trying again...if no picture shows up, it was supposed to be a plate with home-grown cucumbers from last August.

Well when I put a picture up I used there simple uploader and I noticed that it had a bunch of code but the picture did show up

Got all my tender plants tucked in and mulched for the winter today. I hated to cut my banana trees down when they still look so good, however I left them last winter and the slimy goo left when they froze was more than I want to deal with again.

Hi Lynda,

Sometimes I get the gobbledygook and sometimes it actually works and my picture appears. Probably a software glitch.

Hey everyone "Batten down the hatches" rain,wind and cold for the next week. You can feel it already. Maybe all the leaves on the big leaf maples and cotton woods will come down at once. Take all tender plants in NOW, it's time to snuggle under a quilt with a good book.

Thanks for the tip, Diane...I'll look that cranesbill up. I planted a beautiful G. pratense called 'Midnight Reiter'...deep purple leaves that is semi-dwarf with large dark lilac flowers. But it just sits there! What's that saying? First year sleeps, second year creeps, third year leaps. I want it to leap the first year!

Whoever started this group: can we get a nice pic up instead of the 3 resident brown silhouettes?

Hi Lynda, I have so many varieties of Cranesbill Geranium it is hard to pick out a favorite but if pressed it would be G.dalmaticum or Dalmatian Cranesbill Geranium which is evergreen and the leaves turn orange/red in the fall. the flowers are small, mauve to pink. I also have a favorite white with red stripes. blood-red and of course all of the lavenders,pinks etc. Several years ago I discovered them and made it a point to collect a lot of them, they all do well here and make a neat ground cover or border plant.

Has anyone successfully wintered over purple fountain grass? I have some perennial pfg that does well, but the annual is so beautiful! I wondered if I dug it and
brought it inside, it would keep for next year (they're spendy!)????
