    I was too busy making ice tea indoors to know what you fools were doing outside….lol.  I just know I came out with more tea and saw that maxi pad on Joanne’s face….I laughed and said, “I am not even going to ask what is going on”….LOL  Charlene

    Good morning Del, Rob and all who visit later.  We are at 14º this morning and supposed to reach 40º today….and then watch out!  We’ve got a cold front moving in for the weekend that the high temps of the day will be lucky to be above zero.

    Del…..you with your side, Rob with his wrist, and me with my knee…..what a trio we make….lol.  Now we know what we have to look forward to in the “golden years”.

    I am glad it is Friday.  I have a couple of benches to cover today and a snowmobile seat to do….other than that I will just be sewing cushions for 6 dining room chairs….an easy day.

    Have a great Friday everyone.  Charlene

    Very lovely assortment of flowers here today…..love them all.  Carol, I do believe that Penstemon are sometimes called Beardstongue…..and Monarda are called Bee balm.

    No thank you…..I am not shopping for a watch

    My phlox got very tall in the summer of 2011

    I thought that I would post a shorter vine because I know Leslie bought several trellises and she said a couple of them were smaller.  I think if I were to grow this short vine it sould be in a hanging basket and let it trail down.  Charlene

    I grew the red Penstemon hartweggii from seed a couple years ago…..they did not winter over, but they bloomed the 1st year and did attract hummers.  Charlene

    ATTENTION EVERYONE !!! If I ask for anymore seeds this spring please tell me  NO !!!

    [/quote]

    LOL…we don’t don’t say no to anyone here….if you want more seeds we will send them to you in triplicate.  I sent you seeds and you didn’t even ask for them.  One can never have too many seeds.  Charlene

    Vicki…it would be a pleasure to meet you.  As you read, the gathering at my house is in July and there is also a gathering At Flowerpower’s in NY the 1st weekend in August.  It sould be great if you could make one or the other…..or maybe even both!  Would you be flying or driving?  Charlene

    Thanks Gayle….I did edit it now.  I guess I can’t eat lunch and type at the same time.

    Alma…..CowgirlOK (Vicki) has been on board for awhile…..I think she reads more than she talks, but I know I have sent her seeds several times….and she was on the seed train.  Charlene

    We had 43º today!  WOW….unusual for January….but what is around the corner is alot colder than that.  The UPS man had shorts on today….I questioned him about that!  He said that a few months back he had made a joke and said that as soon as it was 40 degrees he’d be in shorts….his fellow workers held him true to that promise.  We had a cold wind inspite of the temps, so he told me he was going to go home tonight and take a hot shower and get his long johns on….lol

    Kathy….we have often talked about the similarities between Wendy and Ericka….but I never realized they were the same age!  Ericka was 35 in Dec.  If they grew up in the same school, I bet they would have been best friends!  Sorry to hear about Steve’s friend passing….so sad.  I hope Steve handles it well.

    Stella….when we are on our front porch I pften watch dogs taking their owners for a walk, so I know what you are saying.

    Nancy….so glad that your son only got a bruised ego from his accident.

    Lair….you and Tim went out for luch….what’s up with that?

    Karen….happy to hear that you had a good day teaching.  I know when the time comes you will fall right back into it….and what a good surprise to come home to seeds!  Double good day!

    Molly….your dogs are your buddies.  I grew up with farm dogs….and their job was to guard the farm at night.  They had the garage and outside buildings to keep them warm in the winter, so they didn’t freeze…..but they weren’t in the house.  Because of bring outside, they got such a heavy winter coat they would have died from heat if we brought them indoors.

    Gran….I have cleaning closets on my “to do” list.  A job that I really hate.  Enjoy your fish & chips!

    Gayle….winter sowing asters is great!  I let my fall ones go to seed and they always come back.  Those are the ones that I transplant where I want them for fall blooms with mums….of course, you are in a different zone.  I recall Wendy doing the same thing in the Spring.

    Del….wow…what a headche for you with your fridge!  I hope the guy comes tomorrow and gets things working for you!  Prayers for your friend and family.

    Sandy….I used to play card games with DS alot when he was the age of your girls.  We liked to play Cribbage.  DD had problems with cards, but we would play Yahtzee of the board game of life….good memories.

    I am just happy that my seeds that I planted Monday night are doing so well….I’ve got Ivy geraniums, Incarvilla Cheron, zonal geraniums, verbena, vinca, and pentas up already….some of them were up and moved to the light last night.  It must have been the right time of the moon or something.

    have a good evening everyone.  Charlene
