Hi Jan, Sorry I missed you you when you sent chat message. My Daughter called from NM and was talking to her when I saw your message pop up.Your AV are so pretty, also your Christmas and Easter cactus. This time of year COTs are resting. When you get them outside in the sun they will take off. My Clematis have big buds on them.
I have not been on in a long time. Hubby has Lymphoma. We found out about 8 months ago. He is in a wonderful hospital, however it is a 2 hour drive. They have what they call the Family House that only cost me 35.00 a night. It is only about a year old so it is real nice. It is built like a small motel so we have our own room.
Mike had his stem cell transplant this week so they told him he may have a couple rough days.
God has Blessed him in that he has not been real sick from chemo.
It's time for my pj's so will talk again soon. Sharon
Hi Jan and thank you for being my friend. Yes, it is nice to have other cold climate gardeners. We understand each others challenges growing in colder zones. Try again on my website. I think it is case sensitive. I have had no one say anything about user problems. I look forward to your posting. When I get some more time I would love to look over your gardens. Smiles, Lark
Your clematis are just beautiful. Love your pictures. I haven't had much luck growing them. I've killed 2 already. I was surprised when I saw the start. But within two days it was gone. I had used Deadline around it. Hopefully it will find the strength to regrow. Happy gardening. And yes, I do spend a lot of time outside in my garden. I have my summers off and I like to play in the yard.
"Oh yes they do sprout here LOL I have one tree (my favorite of course) that was badly damaged with a late heavy wet snow last year... So she went to work making seed like crazy! I have thousands of seedlings at her base this Spring! I've…"
"The 1st several years mine bloomed beautifully - but scent was lacking... This year we had a really mild winter and not only is she blooming her head off she perfume's the entire garden! Go figure LOL"
