    Gary….I’m sure they will do great for you….you’ve got some healthy looking cuttings there.

    Wonder how long a display like that would last out of water? Have you (or anyone reading this) ever tried it for a party or such?

    Ann….I have never left them completely out of water, but I’ve done something similar by placing the flower in those tiny little test tube things that long stemmed roses come in and that works good.  Charlene

    My Mom always said…..(same difference, just different wording)

    Evening gray and morning red….sends the traveler back to bed.

    Evening red and morning gray, sends the traveler on his way.

    I am like Molly….really don’t know any but the basic butterflys.  We do have Luna moths around here, and I know it isn’t that because they are really big.  Hopefully someone can identify it for you, Del.  Charlene

    Good morning everyone…it is 23º here right now, but the sun is peeking out and hopefully the wind has died down.  That cold wind the last 2 days just “cut right through”….BRRRR.

    No big plans for me today, but I certainly got alot accomplished yesterday.  I slept good last night in my nice clean bedding….got the fleece sheets on now.

    Del….I hope Steve has better results at his DOT physical today.  I know he can’t afford to be w/out a job.

    Leslie….lots of my extra time is also spent doing errands, administering meds, and getting groceries for my BFF.  She doesn’t eat alot, however….very poor eating habits which isn’t doing her any good.  She only likes snacks, sweets, and pre-prepared food that she can stick in the microwave.  She won’t cook at all.  I’ve taken her soup several times….and she doesn’t like celery, carrots, cabbage, so needless to say, she doesn’t eat the soups I take her.

    Steve…..I read on another post where the lady in the red tank top seems to distract you….just why is that???  LOL  Any luck with Picasa yet….or I guess you probably haven’t had much time since you are working the weekend.

    Kathy….I heard that the Dakotas had dipped into the teens Friday night, so I feared that is what we would have last night.

    Have a great day everyone!  Charlene

    Good morning, Bette….guess we were posting at the same time.  Beets sound really good.  DSis called yesterday and she had just canned 12 qts of beet pickles and was about to can some plain beets.

    Did Addison like her spaghetti and meatballs last night?  That is also a favorite of Caden’s….only he calls it besgetti…..lol.  Charlene

    Steve…glad you got Shutterfly to work….no luck with Picasa yet?  BTW….mums look good!

    Del…very lovely flowers….I also really like that dahlia!

    Gayle….your GH looks full.  Can those plants stay i there all winter?

    Abey…..love that iris.

    This pic is off topic, but I don’t have any new flower pics, so I will share a pic of the ceiling I upholstered in my shop this week.  I was sick of looking at studs and insulation….and wasn’t having any luck getting help to put up the board I had….so I just upholstered the ceiling with vinyl…..lol….never done that before!

    Of course you can brag…and I understand why!  What a great pic.  The only fishing my GKs get to do is in a near by river, but they do go alot and seem to enjoy it.  He must like it as well if he does all of that without help from Dad.  Charlene

    She is a smart woman isn’t she Gary?

    Kathy….if you do buy some be sure to store them in your GH until you need them.  They need sun to power them.  Charlene

    Gayle….if i were to do only shrubs (that’ll never happen) I’d choose a variety of barberry shrubs.  They come in a huge variety of colors and can be pruned and kept at any size or shape you’d like (they also bloom….lol)

    Here is a nice selection of them

    [quote user="Stelios"]Those hostas may look good, plus they are easy to look after, but boy do they ever get big.  Can’t see myself cutting the stems one by one.[/quote]

    I have never cut our hostas off in the fall.  Over the winter the stems just disappear.  The only plants I cut off in the fall are the large phlox south of our driveway.  If I don’t cut them off, they seemm to stop all of the snow from blowing off the driveway.  Hope you have a “Happy Thanksgiving” with your family.  Charlene

    Lair….you don’t have to remove them one by one…..lol.  Seriously, Molly is always saying that pine neddles make good mulch…..sounds like you’ve got alot of mulch!  Charlene
