    Kathy…i had to go out and check my label…Snowwolf is right, but rather than yellow archangel it is

     Lamiastrum galeobdolon silver frost. It does well in sun, part sun or shade, but it doesn’t get as shiny in shade. Charlene

    How cool is that?  I love the fact that you live in a floating cabin…and even more impressed with the floating gardens.  Very nice…thanks for sharing here.  I do hope more people see this.  Charlene

    That is gorgeous! It looks tropical, yet natural….love it!  A lot of planning and work went into that area, didn’t it?  You must have a large yard.  Charlene

    Julie is dancing in Boston right now, but she should be back soon.  You might have to keep this bumped for her until she returns.  Charlene

    Gary….Larry retired a while back, but he does have a part time job 2 days per week.  I have to admit it takes some time getting used to spending more time together.  I still go to work…and I am guessing he is happy to have his “me” time when I am gone.  I know I enjoy some “me” time when he is gone.  We will get used to this and so will you and your DW. (I have to be careful what I say on here because he now visits here….I told him to not read anything in parenthesis….lol) Charlene

    Tina…I think that may be just the frond emerging from the ground, but time will tell.  It does look like my rabit’s foot.  I do not know if the Rabbit’s foot would survive winter outdoors.  I got mine from Molly, and I think she even treats hers as a house plant.  Whatever you have there looks like it will be pretty and happy it survived the winter for you!  Charlene

    Tina…glad to hear that we didn’t miss Sandy’s birthday.  I am guessing the family just observed early.  So we will wish her a happy birthday tomorrow.  I knew you had it covered if she had posted her birthday on that thread…nice of you to take on that job.  Charlene

    Our yard has looked like a cemetary full of ghosts before.  I have a huge bag full of old sheets that I use just for that purpose.

    Sharon…your daffs and HH will be fine.  Gayle, probably a good idea to protect your camellia, though.  You’d kick yourself it you lost every bud.

    Anns…if you have any questions on seed starting, come here with the question (garden chat) and you will get an answer for sure!  Many of us are getting to be experts on that topic from years of experience.  You are lucky to live in a warm zone where many things can be planted right outdoors.  Charlene

    Several of my family members grew bamboo….let me tell you, that stuff was on a mission to conquer the world….lol.  I hope the 36″ trench contains it.  It is a lovely plant with many uses.  It appears you have quite a large area in your yard, Anns.

    You did post this in the right place.  We seem to put all of our posts here in garden chat because it is where all of us gather.  I just happened to notice your post in Garden Pics last night because it was listed here on the right hand side as a new post…so I checked it out.  Charlene

    Good morning everyone!  We have quite a crowd here this morning…good to see.  The fire feels good and I appreciate the food.  I am sure Larry hasn’t eaten it all since he isn’t much of an eater.

    Donna…I am so sorry that you had another sleepless night.  I am afraid you may be sleeping through the website service this morning.  The chair statement made me laugh out loud.

    How nice to see Anns visiting here this morning, and nice to see you, Stewart!  Please stop by more often…both of you.

    Charlie…that is cold.  Our temps are like 29º. but we have a really cold wind…and the wind is supposed to be bad all day…..40-45MPH….yikes.  I guess we’d better battan down the hatches.

    Sandy…Happy birthday!  When is your birthday?  Did you give the date to Tina?  Wow…quite a serious proposition from your Dad.  That home is near or on the lake, correct?  Would you be living with your Dad, or is he offering you the house and he will move out?

    Molly, Leslie, and Marilyn…enjoy the church services and whatever you decide to do after wards.  I think a hooded parka would be needed here…tied tightly around the chin to not blow off…lol.

    I am not sure what my day will bring….time will tell.  My immediate plans are to finish off this cup of coffee and get another one.  Have a great day everyone.  Charlene

    Great job at posting a pic!  I see what you mean that a trailing plant may be better planted in your log.  Since I am not an expert on what trailing plants do well in your heat, I hope someone else can give you some ideas.

    Hey…it appears that Vinca do great in that area.(beautiful plants)  There is a Mediterranean  vinca blooming vine that may work for you in the cedar log.

    Vinca Mediterranean XP Mix

    The most vigorous trailing vinca you can grow, Mediterranean mix provides lush bright colorful blooms for containers and hanging baskets. Easy to grow, Vinca excels in heat and humidity with continuous flowering from early summer till frost.

    On our menu tonight is chicken stir fry with rice.  We do enjoy that so much, I wonder why I don’t make it more often.  It is quick, easy, and good…what not to like about that?  Charlene
