    WOW….if I have to figure out how to do that… find time to do all of that, I won’t have time to save and share seeds. I keep it all in my head because I never forget anything…..

    Hello….”what is my name????”  LOL  Charlene

    Gayle….thanks for that site!

    Wanda….have you been here long enough to see the cool GHs and garden acres that Noreen’s daughter has?  I used to have it saved to my favorites, but I lost that with my last puter problems.  Is it called Windy Acres…..Willow Acres…..(just thinking out loud here)  I hope someone saved to share again….if not, maybe Noreen will see this thread and share.  Charlene

    Yes, I have, Bette….so far it has worked great.  I hope it isn’t just beginners luck.  I also forgot to say that I dissolve an aspirin in the water….read that somewhere….or else a tip from Lair.   Charlene

    I have to join Facebook to look at it and I’m not making that mistake again.

    I get lots of good ideas from garden magazines and so many internet sites with so many ideas…..too many for me to absorb!  Also, my space is limited here. 

    Thanks for the site, though…..I’m sure others here will enjoy it.  Charlene

    Friday we got a 10# tube of 93% burger for $2.19 per pound.  Yesterday we bought a Prime Rib Roast for $4.49 per pound.  I plan on cutting that into steaks.  They will taste great this winter….and I am able to step out the front door and grill on the front porch year yound unless there is a strong NW wind.  Charlene

    I have started a “NEW” way and it seems to be working well so far (knocking on wood).  I put the cuttings in a jar of sand that is covered completely with water.  They don’t seem to rot and you know when the cuttings are rooted because you can see the white roots growing to the side of the jar.

    I have heard of it but never tried it.  I always intend to try the rhubarb leaf recipe, but like Gayle said….I forget until I see the PMildew and then it is too late…..”maybe next year.”….my favorite saying…..lol.  Charlene

    Aleida….I have no experience with Rose of Sharon, but I recall someone else on this board having a similar problem to yours.  She discovered that the buds were being feasted upon at night by earwigs.  Could that be a possibility in your area?  I know earwigs ate many of my plants this year.  Charlene

    Thanks, Gayle.  I haven’t heard anything and don’t do Facebook, so I’ve been curious.  Tim said she would call later.  I believe Flower hospital is the one closer to her home where she hoped to have the surgery but couldn’t.  Once she is transferred she will probably be able to have her cell phone and possibly her laptop, so hopefully we will then be able to get info from “the horses mouth”.  Charlene

    Very lovely flowers and pics this morning….Jane, those hummer shots are fantastic!  My hummers are camera shy, and I am not the world’s greatest photographer.

    I guess this is the time of year when we all realize why we grow Buddleia….and we also know why it is nicknamed Butterfly bush….mine have been like Grand Central Station lately:

    Posy….here is a pic of white lavatera.  If this is what the plant is, it is an annual for me.
