"Bonnie, the Orioles and the Indigo Bunting are beautiful. I so wish we got them here in No.Ga. I posted a pic of our yearly visitor a male Gross Beak but I put it on the wrong page and you have to zoom in on it to see it.I as so proud to get that…"
"it is really beautiful,I have seen more Wisteria this Spring than I ever have, maybe these folk's have the 7 yr. type also. My hubby won't have it in our yard due to it being so invasive,but I love it."
"everyones Miniature are so pretty, Catherine, most of my succulents stay out side all year and they kind of die don when it's cold and in spring they just fill back out and are beautiful again.Good luck ,The Sempervivums are especially hardy."
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... :-)
