    Janet…very impressive.  I am envious of your big yard!  Looks like lots of blooming things already and soon to be alot more.

    I also am curious….what are Octobers?  I’ve never heard of them.  Charlene

    “Nope, not yet” is still appropriate for my area…..lol…..you could keep that same title for several more weeks the way things are looking here.  Another interesting letter, Ron.  Charlene

    Good morning everyone.  It is 30º here this morning.  The weather dude did say a couple of words that I liked….”blue skies, and sunshine”.  Only supposed to get up to 40º but that is warmer than we have been having.

    Just another day in my shop….today I will be working on this chairs’ mate.  I love the fabric that this gal picked for the pair of chairs.  I told her they’d fit right into my house, but she didn’t tell me to take them…..lol.

    Have a great day everyone.  Charlene

    Ooops…hit post before I was done.

    Molly….our 2 DGDs have had their school permits since last September….and so far, so good.  It is also pro week here.  DGS#1 and DGD #1 will both be going.  I may just go and see them all dressed up, but not going to the grand march.

    Rocky….sorry about your migraine….hope it is better today.

    Del….you take care of yourself!  I hope you also start feeling better. What is IBS? Charlene

    Janet….thanks for clearing that up….I know what Chrysanthemums are.

    My DMIL always referred to flowers as “posies”…..she said it was because she could never remember their true names.

    Gayle….that is like I had never heard of Mexican Sunflowers until I came to this board.  We have always called them Tithoinia….Charlene

    Ili…the leaves on your Snowball bush do look exactly like the ones on the plant that Janet shared with me.  My worry is…..that may be a different variety than the snowballs that are hardy for here.  Most of the Snowball bushes that are hardy for my zone 4 area have a round leaf.  BUT….I love that she shared it with me and I am going to give it a try.  Charlene

    [quote user="caden"]I live 25 miles west of the Mississippi River……near Maquoketa………….[/quote]

    Oh yes….I know where that is!  I live in NE Iowa….a stones throw from Minnesota….but my brother (Bloominguy) lives at Farley which is just west of Dubuque….you are just south of Dubuque, correct?

    Eva….you are closer to Caden than I am.  Eva is about an hour or so west of Dubuque in NW Illinois. 

    You are in zone 5 where you live…..I am in zone 4.  I have seen you post before but never realized that you were a “neighbor”.  Charlene

    I would put then in a wet paper towel or coffee filter…slip them in a ziplock….and put them in the fridge…..or even in the garage.  They will root out inside the paper towel and have a good start when you are able to plant them outside.  I am only giving this advice because I have done it before and it works….in zone 4….and I am giving advice to a zone 4 gardener.  Charlene
