    Del….does your plant look like this?  If so, you may have just identified my mystery plant for me.  As you can see mine is about ready to bloom….and they are pretty blue star flowers.

    [quote user="luvmyb_b"] I’m sure it would be much cuter in November though, wouldn’t it?[/quote]

    You noticed that I didn’t put a smile on his face. 

    DS was just over and said, “You a little bored, Mom?  I saw the snowman.”  LOL  Charlene

    I have noticed that same phrase at the beginning of Joanne’s posts quite often…..I always wondered what it means.  Charlene

    Del…..get out some olive oil and pour it on it…..let it soak awhile and all will be removed and it will not hurt the finish…..don’t know how to get rid of the smell, though.  Charlene

    Sue,I agree with Molly….the sooner the better.  Have the holes already dig so you can lift them and transfer them to their new home ASAP….maybe they won’t even know they have been moved.  I’ll bet you $100 that you will not be able to get all of the Gooseneck Loosestrife….it has an unbelievable root system.  Charlene

    Now that was a good find!  Last Spring when cleaning up my beds I found my deadheading scissor that I had lost the summer before…..I was sure happy to find it even though it is nothing more than a small scissor….it fit my hand better than most.

    Maybe you have to get those “necklaces” that you hook your glasses to…..LOL  Charlene

    What did you get me?  LOL….just kidding.  It is so nice of you to think of Del when plant shopping.  It doesn’t take long to spend big dollars when plant shopping, does it?  I look at the price tags and it makes me appreciate all of the plants that I start from seed.  Charlene

    Don’t ask me why that printed out that way….I simply said that is was nice of you to think of Del when plant shopping and how fast the money goes….makes me appreciate my seed starting when I see the price on plants.  Charlene

    No plants out here yet, either.  By the looks of my GH and the seedlings still indoors…..I don’t think I’ll need to buy anything this year.  Charlene

    [quote user="hazlnutz"]The secret to healthy tulips is to let them die back and dig them up each fall if you have severe winters.[/quote]

    Tulips are planted in the fall for Spring blooms.  I have pretty severe winters, but the tulips do survive…..squirrels is the only danger they have here.

    Sue….lots of pretty Spring flowers there!  I think you are the 1st to post a pic of bleeding heart this year.  I hope mine survived this awful winter….too early for them to be up yet, so time will tell.  Charlene

    The leaves look very similar, but mine are brighter green rather than deep green.  I do believe mine might be in the same family….feel like I’m getting closer to discovering what it is….right church, wrong pew….lol.  Charlene

    Our local GH also has alarms that go off if the temp falls below a certain temperature.

    SOMEDAY….I am going to open a greenhouse….and it will be called  The “GREEN” greenhouse.  All of my plants will be planted in recycled containers.  Small plants will be in cool whip containers, mid size will be coffee containers and blue bunny plastic containers, and large will be in gallon ice cream buckets.  I have an upstairs at my shop full of containers for this purpose.  I know I will have to drill holes for drainage…..probably just a dream.  LOL  Charlene

    [quote user="growingranny_va_z7"]Charlene is it possible that the difference in the color of the leaves can be the difference in the amount of light yours gets compared to greenhouse lights,[/quote]

    That is possible, Molly….especially since mine has been in a north window until I recently moved it to the GH.  Maybe the leaves will get darker in color.  I will share a picture of it when the blooms open….should be very soon!  Charlene
