    I have grown them from seed but they usually revert to the parent plant, the White Autumn Clematis. They are not easy to start and disappointing unless you want the white ones.

    I wish I could help with that but I had beautiful cannas for years, one year not one came back up. And it wasn’t a particularly cold winter that year either although it may have been a very wet one. I have not replaced them again.

    Welcome home Stella, it sounds like you had a busy trip! I forget how busy a family with young ones can be. Lately the best part of any trip is getting home and back to what passes as normal for me. My kids tell me I am becoming and old F**t! They are probably right about that but it is what it is. I know what the dogs are like when I get home, they make me feel so guilty for leaving them. The cat couldn’t care less as long as he has food in his dish.

    It has been such a long time since I was on Orange Beach! At that time there were no condos there. Any time I see a beach it makes me want to be there. Your pics are beautiful! Thanks for sharing them.

    I didn’t even know it was Sweetest Day, that is new to me but if your DH brought you flowers he is a good dude:) I would reward him with Prime Rib too.

    Good Morning all..I have been here off and on but didn’t dare start the thread because usually there ends up to be two. It is a picture perfect day here, a little cool but sunny so as soon as my laundry is finished I plan to get out there and get busy! Yesterday I got the lawn mowed, it didn’t look high but it was thick! Today I will do the greenhouse lawn and continue to try to make some sense in there too. I have ignored things too long in there while working on the parsonage so there is a lot of cleaning and dumping of things in there. I have a lady who offered to help but I would be too embarresed to have her see it now. Once I get the mess cleaned up I will call her. Yesterday I went to a friend’s and picked kale, apples and tomatoes. I got all of them taken care of and she wants me to come and get more. Maybe the first of the week I can get over there again. I need to get to the store sometime today to get dog food (yes again!) and a ham hock to go into the kale. She has a huge patch of collards growing but I don’t like them until we have a frost, then they are sweeter. I hope everyone has a perfect day today!

    Mine are all still sitting in separate vases…I have yet to arrange them. The only time I have ever dried anything in water was Lavender that I put about an inch of water in the vase and let that evaporate.

    I have Firefox and never saw that either. I have so many virus scanners and adware scanners on this thing I am surprised I can even navigate on here.

    I cut mine when the color was right, put them in vases with NO water.

    Good Morning or should I say good afternoon? I have NEVER slept this late in my whole adult life! I have to get over to a friend’s house to help them pick their tomatoes and kale, she has bone spurs in her foot and can’t do it and she asked me if I would help. The sky is clear, the sun is shining and it is supposed to be a beautiful day for working outside, maybe if I have any energy left I will get the lawn mowed when I get home. I love this weather but it won’t last long before it will be C O L D and that isn’t what I like.
