    Charlie…I said that Margba had started a thread inquiring about the Aero gardens and Bette had given information on that.

    Gayle….is right….go to the all about seed forum and at the top there are actually 2 threads that give lots of information about seed starting.  Charlene

    My guess is also heliotrope…and they smell so good…a vanilla scent.  Charlene

    Steve…I am envious…blooms in January?  I will try to remember to remind you to plant crocus next fall……try is the key word there…lol.

    Kathy…your Kalanchoes are doing well!  Mine are budded, but no blooms yet.  I don’t have the orange one anymore…..it got aphids in the GH last winter, so I sat it outside…..it didn’t like that.

    Melissa…that is a gorgeous lily.  I think we have one very similar and it blooms later than most of the others.

    This is called a tubular plant.  I got it as a plant last year.  I took a couple of cuttings and had to transplant them yesterday….the cutting has buds on it.  The hummingbirds liked it.

    Good morning everyone.  Larry gave the weather report, but now we are wondering if we got some rain or something during the night because they just announced that school is 2 hrs late.  I guess he will find out when he heads to get groceries.

    Monday in my shop….and I will have a helper.  I had a loveseat and 4 chairs delivered on Friday, so he will tear them apart.  I did throw his time card away….lol.

    Sue…that storm passed over here, but all we got out of it was a skiff of snow….and that was ok with me.  We usually have enough food in the freezer that we don’t have to make a mad dash to the grocery store when a storm is forecast.

    Leslie….I wonder what the shots were about?  That would scare me in the middle of the night.

    Melissa…your busy schedule makes my head spin…..I’d have to make a note where the kids were when, or I’d probably lose one of them…lol.

    Molly…hope you find your cell phone.

    Have a great day everyone.  Charlene

    Hello Melissa and Stella.

    Melissa…it sounds like you had a very busy day….what else is new?  LOL  How is the DH working nights going?  I know that is a major change for you guys.  I hope the girls appreciate their clean bedrooms.

    Stella…most retired people say that weekends are the worst….and I thought that same thing when I was home following surgery.  I am glad you had time with family both yesterday and today.  Charlene

    Marilyn….sorry to hear you are getting nasty weather.  we only got a bit of snow last night, but it is colder than it has been…but still above normal temps for here.  Larry got Bunny Tracks (that is my favorite)  He prefers the Chocolate chip cookie dough, but I don’t care for that.  Stay warm and safe in that weather.

    Charlie…quiet Sundays are good…gets you rested up for the work week.

    Eva….congrats on the April wedding!  I am glad you know this girl and like her.  Our DDIL was DD’s best friend and was here almost every weekend, so we were comfortable welcoming her into the family.  Glad you had a day with family…..that is always fun.

    Donna….I am sad that the shots didn’t help your pain.  You have certainly had more than your fair share of pain, etc.  I hope the surgery helps the pain in the other hand….eventually.  I know right after your surgery, there will be pain to endure with the healing process.

    Kathy….I am hopping into the tub when I am done here and then will see what is on TV….a quick glance through the guide tells me that 2 CSIs are about all I can get in my bedroom.

    Julie….what a jackpot that is!  You have such a good area for hostas and I am curious to see what other flowers she has.  That is nice of your DH to befriend this guy….and sometimes being nice pays off, doesn’t it?

    How nice…you said plates…did they eat with you?  I am glad to know that they do appreciate all you do for the church…..and what a nice surprise for you!  I hope you didn’t already have supper ready.  Charlene

    Kathy….I am trying some seeds in my bedroom right now.  It is much cooler there than in the closet where I usually start them.  If they don’t germinate, it is back in the closet for them….lol.

    Gayle…are these BFbushes that you saved seed from or did you purchase seed?  I got 2 different varieties of BFB from Park seed last year and I swear everyone I planted last year germinated, and also this year.  I am in pursuit of a white one.  I got mixed seed and not a single one last year bloomed white.  Most of them were lavender.

    Karen….it would be fabulous if vitamin D helped your Mom out.  My Mom used to have to get a B12 shot every 3 months or so.  After she got the shot, she had so much energy and felt so much better…..maybe I need a “dose” of that….lol.   Charlene

    LOL at Steve.  Yes, Charlie, they were having some difficulties, but it seems back to normal now.  If I had gone to church, I wouldn’t have even known the site was down….lol.  Charlene

    After I posted this morning, I couldn’t even bring up the website.  An hour ago, I could pull up the site, but very slow to bring up posts or reply….now it seems back to normal!  Knocking on wood and thanking you, Jill, for the quick response.  Charlene

    Sandy….it is very possible for me to mislabel envelopes of seeds, but impossible to send you sunflowers because I don’t grow them….lol.  I did grow Teddy Bear last year, but didn’t save seed.  Mystery seedlings are always fun.  Charlene

    Good morning everyone.  I am typing quietly because DGS is sleeping in the next room.  We had to watch Wizard Of Oz when we went to bed, but I shut it off after a short time because we were both tired.  I suppose he will want to watch the rest of it when he wakes up…..not me!  I have seen that movie too many times in my life since it is a favorite of Larry and both of our kids.

    Today after DGD goes home I will do the transplanting of seedlings and repotting of cuttings that I planned on doing yesterday.  Not sure what else the day will bring.

    Karen…you mentioned about recording your Mom…..I wanted to tell you a story.  My Mom grew up in a family of 17 and they were poor as church mice.  She had so many stories to tell of her childhood.  I got a tape recorder and every Sunday when I went to visit her, we’d do a recording session.  I just left the tape recorder at her house.  Don’t you know….one day when I wasn’t there, she decided that she’d add some more stories to the tape.  Some how she erased hours of recording that we had already done.  She passed soon after doing that, so I never did get her life story documented.

    Sandy…yay on the seed growing.  It will be a couple years before you see a bloom, but I hope it will be worth the wait.

    Have a great day everyone….thanks for the biscuits, Molly!  Charlene

    That looks 100% better.  Did you plant what you cut off in another pot?  I know I have a problem throwing anything away….lol.  Charlene
