"I found a couple of nurseries that HAD it (out of stock now) so that is encouraging. I've dealt with Brushwood Nursery before.. I think he's a good guy and worth talking to about possibly reserving one for you with the next available…"
"This one is worth looking for. I have to concur, the prettiest I have seen. I particularly love that the photo captures the colour of the ribs in the sepals and colour of the stems. Haven't had much luck with clematis here but probably…"
"Glad you like Omoshiro. She is pretty but for me doesn't bloom heavily.. a light bloomer. However, at my sis's house she is a better bloomer. Clematis are a funny lot sometimes. Maybe you could add some chicken…"
"Tanya this is one of the most beautiful Clematis I believe I've ever seen. I have 3 , 2 Jackamani took yrs to bloom but it is thriving now, and 1 that is 2 shades of pink. My hubby put a Ceder Limb in the ground for me and we hung bird houses…"
"Kathleen, thank you! I nearly killed it this season with Meijer weed and feed. OMG, I was horrified at what it did to some of my perennials. Live and learn. Most are making a comeback, thank you, Lord. Omoshiro is…"
"Just lookin' in for a minute.. I don't have time for two forums really and my family and extended family are all on FB. Anyway, as always what I see here is fun! Arden, wish you could've been with me this morning.…"
Yes, we had a horrible drought last year also, here in IN. I love the rose, but why did they have to name it Ketcup and Mustard, that's like naming your baby Mayonaise or something - just because the colors are right.

me neither Tanya...Michaels has a discount wall of stuff and I am always picking up things to use in mosaic....I bought 4 gorgeous cups to break up at a local thrift store but they are so pretty I can't bring myself to break them. .25 each.. SO im drinking coffee from them and if they break someday I'll use them.
Tanya, tesserae is any materials glued to a surface to form a mosaic. sometimes just called "tess"....I'm excited to start a birdhouse using some of the ideas from the website you posted...my kind of stuff!!
Tanya...they do make gray grout or you can use a little black acryllic paint to make white a little gray...one of these days I want you to glue the tessara to a project and completely grout it. You wil see a difference i the finished craft. go ahead and jump in....
Thanks for the welcome Tanya!! I just stumbled onto this site and am already in love with it!! Thanks for the fairy forum recommendation. I might consider that one. Your gnome picture is cute!! It was cold too here in WI today. Looking forward to a warmer week.
"Thanks Charlotte and Lorraine. These astilbes and ferns are against the north side of the house, so they are in shade most of the day. Lorraine, you're right that astilbes (and ferns) will scorch if they get too much hot sun."
