"Tory ,you are really blessed to still have your precious Mother with you . I lost mine 11 years ago this month on the 24th of Nov. I miss her so much. Cherish your time and gardening with her. God Bless"
"Jan, I hope you have your Long John's on to keep you warm and of course warm sock's. It has been chilly here in Ga. already but not as cold as there. My Bro. and Sis in law live in Nothern No.Dak. and they certainly get cold there too.…"
Elizabeth, I found an old photo of when my shutters used to hang on the fence above the little bench and eventually rotted. The shutters have a nice edge on them so when you put them back to back there is plenty of room in between for the soil. I turned them upside down also so the soil would stay in and not wash out when watered or rained on. You could do this with any shutters but these are a some kind of heavy plastic so will not rot. Thisis the 4th year I've had them.
Just wanted to drop a quick note to say Hi... the weather here is really starting to turn spring like so I will be able to plant the cosmos you sent me very soon... although it's been absolutely gorgeous here during the day it still drops to freezing at night so I am a little leary about planting them quite yet.. another 10 days or so hopefullly will do it.
I will post some pic's for you to see once they start to grow... :-)
