Oh sharon that is quite a daily challenge for you and hubby... It does help to be together at the Hotel/room.  It has been a rough winter for mostly everyone l Know up here in Minnesota. 

I nearly Killed that COT plant.... But it is so different that I do like it very much.... Thanks for the imput... I should tell you that I really don't know how to care for that plant .  What can I do to improve it??

Last few months I went in and had Gull Bladder surgery and two months before that I had knee surgery as I tore my muscle around the knee cap by tripping and falling down in the garden last fall.  The GOLDEN AGE IS NOT TOO GOLDEN MORE LIKE BROWN TO ME!! Ha ha..... I do hope you get this message... I actually have been looking for you for quite a long time here!  Nice you are back... Hugs Jan

Sometimes snapdragons winter over... I planted these from seed and you know what a mild winter we had last year.. they don't always do that.

I live in Montana on the Hi-line so our growing is Zone 3, we can grow some zone 4 plants depending the area you live in and if we have an open winter or not. zone 4 plants like that snow cover helps protect them.
