Hi Good morning all. This round robin is an extention of the wonderful traders who when at all possible trade daylilies. We are waiting again for spring so we can trade. We have the most awesome group of traders, proven, experienced, honest, givng, sharing and awesome loving people. The way into this group is to have traded and proven yourself honest. We are not snobs, we just want to protect each other and you from any game traders... should there be any. If you know any of us, email privately and they will be allowed to get you in on their recomendation.We'd love to have you!

We are currently doing a box swap which consists of lots of goodies... but no live daylilys!

YETTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT!

NOW...WHERE THE HOOTIE IS G???????????

    Canna, sorry to hear you're sick! Get better really soon cuz we don't have extra lungs and can't grow them for you.

    Shirley your stockings are really nice. I'll bet all who get them love them.

    Happy Valentine's everyone!

    brittneysgran, I'd love some of your yellow and dark pink hibiscus and the datura seeds. What are you looking for in trade?

    Thanks Canna for matching us up. Now I'll have to drive clear to Texas or somewhere just to find something Jo doesn't have!!! I think we need to know a couple of months in advance who we'll have so we can check out their lists and see what we can find. lol Canna, thanks for bringing us along on your trip today. I love to be the fly on the wall and I feel as though I was watching everything. You tell it good girl! I'm still laughing, read it aloud to DH and he was laughing too. Jo, you need to hush about Joanne's. If I go there I'd be divorced because I'd have to buy fabric AND garden goodies. I can't even afford to feed one hobby/habit at a time much less two. Pretty daffs Marea! I want more varieties every year. Jo, I'm waiting on those pics so hurry the bulbs along. Where's Anita? Haven't seen her lately! I went outside yesterday and poked around and found that I'm going to have lots more iris blooms than I first thought! Thank you Anita!!! I really didn't expect them to bloom this year so I'm tickled pink! Sharon, everybody needs a pink flamingo! lol It was always a big joke in my hometown and when my boss there built a huge new home on the lake one of his friends bought him some for house warming. Really funny! That makes me think of his female friend he was raised with who got married and sent out invitations to the wedding. Two years later she got a divorce, took the extra wedding invitations to the printer and had them print a divorce party announcement on the reverse side! Now who would have thought of that? oops, sorry that isn't about gardening! TTYL, Nancy

OK I am done yelling at you :) I feel better. I know I told you CONGRATULATIONS for your new venture, inspired by David's Daylilies over the phone, But thought I would tell you again, I cant wait. Oh I am so looking forward to May 14th, Hey how far away would that be for Mary B??? MARY B. PLANT SWAP!!!!!! I forgot were. Janet, I am glad to know all went well with your DD wisdom tooth removal, My DS has to have the same thing done, Now I'm not saying he is a baby, but at 21 he will not go do it unless I go with him:) Angie, Thanks for the heads up on the Co-op, but after what I have already spent this year on Daylilies, I better slow down a bit before DH is having me replaced, & He cant do that cuz I am so looking forward to our 25 wedding anniversary, He wonders why I am working so hard in my flower's, I think in 4 years I should have things just the way I want them, 7 Yep renew our vow's, right were over the last few years have watched as other people have gotten married. Gay, Hope you get your computer figured out, I know you will send one way or the other:) Mine ticked me off so bad earlier, I had almost everyone covered 7 for some unknown reason, BUMP Off Line I Go, Oh I hate that, Did you E-mail Susan? I think someone better if you didn't, it has been a LONG time. Cindy, I know I posted to you earlier, & as I was just coming back, I see Jo saying sorry to you, I too missed it, I am very sorry your Gramma passed away, Wish I could give you a big hug & help you weed to make you feel better:) Dianne, OK, now I know this pneumonia crap has messed with my head, but for the life of me I cant remember who is getting married at your house, Is this the first for you? I think it gets easier each time, We are thinking about renting out for wedding's, Wedding's only not party's. Oh man I will have to come back again another call I have to take, :)Anita

    Canna, thanks for sharing your pics with us of the swap. I really enjoyed seeing Cheryl since I've traded with her and emailed with her several times. Looks like everyone had a great time, especially your little sweetie! Anita called me Friday night and I really enjoyed "meeting" her. We talked over an hour! Glad you're feeling some better Anita. I love hostas too. I have quite a few and even tho they are pretty common ones I really enjoy them. I checked out the ebay page for your friend G but all I saw was the picture of one hosta and no list. Maybe I didn't look at the right place? Can you steer me in the right direction? I'd love to join the swap this month but my daylilies are all too small or ya'll already have them so I'll have to grow some on and try to gather more before I can trade for daylilies. I know you all will have fun and it will be fun for me to see what everyone else gets. Joey, I NEED Baby for a playmate for Andy! They are just about the same size and would compliment each other well I'm sure since Andy is white. I too love the delphiniums. What a gorgeous color! Janet, when is your new grandbaby due? What is it gonna be? Either way I'm sure you'll spoil it! Melissa, how scarey! I'm sure glad they caught your imposters before they really ruined you guys credit and lives! That would be a horror story for sure. Ellen, have a good time at Nancy Ann's! I'm sure you will. It sounds like there's a lot of exciting stuff to keep you busy. You'll need a vacation when you get home! lol Hope everyone has a great night! Nancy

    It was SO MUCH FUN delivering flowers & balloons all day long! Love is in the air. It was also exhausting but I am still reluctant to go to bed...

    Gloria - I am SO HAPPY that you had chocolate for Valentine's Day, too! (Of course I still love you - I've been planning on just sending you a SAS bubble envelope when it's time to plant. *grin*) and I'm happy knowing there is a Godiva chocolate covered happy pig somewhere in the Midwest and that Joey and Ricky have so many people that love them and that Mary finally got to garden a bit again but I'm really sad that our Canna apparently needs a few hot summer days immediately & we can't help...

    Anita - I adore that candy eating gif! Thank you!

    Shirley - Your sock photo is a red x for me, darn it. I would love to trade for some of your Jap. Iris (guess I need a couple of those, too)and canna seeds - check my trade list? If you'd rather have daylilies, please email me for list?

    Hope you all got chocolate and kisses today ~ Marea

    Good morning everyone! Going to be 79 wonderful degrees here today! Can you believe it? Gosh! I am clearing out my flower beds of leaves this week, so I can prepare a nice layer of compost on top. Just wanted to check in and make sure everyone is okay. Take care! Joey

    Morning all!

    Joey, ditto the warm weather today. It is suppose to be 68° and SUNNY! After the rain ended yesterday, I got out and dug in the mud searching for life. I checked most of my gingers, and they look good. The only one I am worried about is my butterfly ginger. I grew it from seed last year and multiplied well, but I don't think I had the rhizome deep enough to survive the winter. Looks like we had another mild winter here. All the bulbs are pushing up and about to bloom.

    G, perfect timing on the chocolate. I have eaten godiva and it is heavenly! We have a store here and I walk in and just smell and I am satisfied.

    I am feeling better today. Just have that nagging nasty cough left over. I think I will venture to Big Lots and see if the gardening stuff is out yet.

    Hi Everyone,

    Hope no one is having any withdrawal from all the chocolate. I am WS today, it is supposed to be 50 here. I have daffs and crocus and a few daylilies peeking their little noses up.what fun.
    I didn't get chocolate for valentines day, I got SEEDS. My DH asked me what I would like, and I said SEEDS. So, thats what I got, and I can get more today. We have several places that carry some unusual ones, and I go every year. So, I am very happy.

    Speaking of seeds, Shirley,
    I would love some of each of your Jap. iris and some cannas.Check my list and see if I have anything you might like.

    I have been hanging out on the seed forum and I have set up quite a few wonderful trades. Whoo hoo.

    Dawn,
    if I get enough of some of them, I think you might be interested. I will let you know. And a big THANK YOU.

    Take care, I am off to WS.........

    Good Morning Daylily friends! Hope everyone had a great Valentine's day. It is a great day at school....everyone getting flowers, candy, cards etc delivered, the kids on sugar highs, generally everyone is in a good mood! Too bad it only comes once a year!
    Yesterday was beautiful with temps up to 50! I went out to the garden and looked around. A few daylilies greening up under the mulch. WOW! Those must be the evergreens! Pandora's Box was the one I remember. It is way too early here in zone 4...throw the mulch back over those babies!Also some sedum poking through. I have spring fever BAD! I just ordered a few more Daylilies from Bluegrass that someone here suggested....Naughty me! This Daylily addiction is seriously going to cut into my hosta habit for financial reasons!!!!
    Joey...I have daylily babies from your seeds from the Oct. box. They are sooo cute!!!!
    Shirley, I might be interested in some Hybiscus, datura or canna seeds. Have never grown any of those. What would you like in trade...hosta, daylily in the spring??

    Canna - Send me your address and I will send you the tropical sunrise canna seeds. I love growing cannas from seeds. When you get your afgan done please post a picture. I am now into crocheting scarves, it does not take to long to do a scarf. My daughter and granddaughter both have orders in for the scarves.

    Nancy - Send me your address and I will send you the yellow and dark pink hibiscus, and datura seeds.

    Marea - Do you want the Japanese iris seeds or some plants?
    I found some things from your list that I would love to have if you want the plants. I also have lots of crocosmia to trade. Hummingbirds love them too. I have some iris too.
    I found these from your list:
    Iris Tennyson and Sweeter Than Wine
    Cannas Lucifer, Journey's End, & Autumn Dragon
    I have bought canna lucifer 4 times and it is never the one that looks like yours.
    I have lots of canna bulbs also.

    Will do, Shirley! Is there anything on my list you might be interested in? I am going to 'attempt' to cross some of my cannas this year. Please post a pic of your scarves too. I love all the new fuzzy stuff to crochet with that is out now and the chenille too. They would make great baby blankets to give.

    OK, went to Big Lots...bad for the wallet... The gardening supplies are out! I went in with a set amount to spend and ended up quadrupeling it. I found some 4 inch southwestern stone pots with rustic looking rings on the side that I have been looking forever to plant some vining succulents. I bought 5. They had tons of adorable bird feeders. I brought home a terracotta feeder that has a birdbath on top. I hung it out and came back in the house, looked outside and a chickadee was already using it. I also got a blue glazed strawberry pot to put more succulents in. They had a 5 foot A frame wood plant stand on display but I couldn't find it on the shelf or I would have dragged one of them home too.

    Hi everyone

    Hope you all got something "sweet" yesterday.

    I am just taking a quick break, it is GORGEOUS out today. Sunny and 60 degrees. WOOOOO HOOOOO!! I'm totally taking advantage and playing in the gardens.

    Canna, I was at Big Lots this morning! My Valentines day gift from DH was $$$$$ for garden stuff. He hates shopping and knows I will be just as happy with cash. I think it's very romantic, lol! I did the same thing as you. I was only going to spend so much, but came out with a truckload. All kinds of fun stuff. I'll take some pics later. Glad you are feeling better.

    Jo, that's very sweet of you. Thanks!

    Joey, 79!!!!! I'd be breaking out the bikini if it was that warm here. Enjoy the day.

    Marea, sounds like you had fun yesterday. I would love to do that. How did you get involved?

    MamaG, MMMMMMMMmmmmmmmm Godiva. Thanks for the beautiful email. I will definately be forwarding that one.

    Shirley, I can't see your pic!!

    Mary, I just told DH this morning during our walk, "I've got Spring fever!" He told me to settle down and laughed. I'm running around like I just ate 10 candy bars. Amazing what a little sun and warm weather will do to you.

    Hi Jaye! Hope all is well with you.

    Melissa, how are you feeling? Enjoy the warmth!

    Susan, hope you and Dan had a wonderful Valentine's day.

    To all the rest of you, have a great day and hope you are smiling as big as I am!

    Jo - I have some Jap. Iris, cannas, purple majesty millet, hollyhock 'the watchman' almost black, and crocosmia 'emily mckensie' seeds. Send me your address and I will mail these to you.

    marys - you will love growing cannas from seeds, they are so easy. Take a file and file on the seed (which is very hard)until you see white then drop the seed in water. When it sprouts plant it. LMK which canna seeds you want and send me your address. I will also send the datura and hibiscus.

    I found these seeds also:
    purple leaf perilla shiso
    purple majesty millet
    hollyhock 'the watchman'
    canna perkeo
    canna northstar
    malcolm red

    Ahhh!! 79 in Little Rock today and sunny. I had an hour off for lunch and grabbed a quick bite with co-workers then we hung out on the streets of downtown L.R. The wind was blowing but it was wonderful. Tomorrow was supposed to be back in the 40's but I just looked at the forcast and they've changed it to 54 and 33 for a low. I would have loved to be free to play all day today.

    Shirley, I sent you an email, thanks.

    Hi all - I am going to Big Lots tomorrow, too! WOW, you guys! I did find a pretty faux antique 2 level iron plant stand at Wally world a couple weeks ago for $10 - go look you guys, I think they're a bargain, too. It'll be fun to hear what Gloria finds on her adventure tonight!

    Shirley - Wonderful! I'd love a couple of your J.Iris and crocosmia plants. And oooh - a couple purple leaf perilla seeds? I will plan on sending you both of the irises, but it may take me awhile to find all 3 of the cannas - my freak cat Bowie steals all my plant labels eventually, but I've learned to also bury labels... Can you plant now? My pretty bright red/yellow "Lucy" canna was a Van Bourg.(sp?) import pkg.

    Dawn - I answered a "Help Wanted" ad in the paper to deliver flowers, and learned that Valentine's Day is the busiest day of the year for florists and they always need extra people to deliver (usually as independent contractors) on that day and on Mother's Day. Requirements are proof of insurance & a vehicle that will fit lots of bouquets. I'll let you know how much it pays when I get my paycheck - I never asked about that. LOL!

    For anyone that may have been confused or thinking I am a sicko, Dicks is a sporting goods store that DH gets all of his gun's, bow's & junk from & after 21 years I have learned it is much easier to get him a gift card, rather than listen to him be a 2 year old about what I buy him, So with that clarified,

    I had big smiles here too. While DD napped, I went outside for about 2 hours and inspected every plant for life. Stuff is popping up everywhere. The virginia bluebells are emerging and even the hostas are showing their nubbies! I was so excited and when Doug came home, he just took the wind out of my sails. All he could say is that all the early growth will get burnt from a late freeze. Bah humbug! Then he asked if I bought out Big Lots, LOL! You know, you gotta buy it when you see it. Otherwise, it may not be there when you go back!

    G, what did ya buy?

    Marea, delivering flowers on V-day must have been awesome! I would probably do it for free just to see people smile. I haven't had delivered flowers since 1992, LOL! And, this body hasn't seen a bikini since then either!

    Anita (sicko :), have you heard from Susan?

    Oh, on Shirley's pic not showing up for some, may be a browser thing. Some browsers have an option to block pictures from certain sites (ie. webshots) and you may have inadvertenly blocked them. I use Mozilla browser and I can right click and block images if I want. I can also block certain ads (ie. ivillage) from showing up on Gardenweb at the side and top along with popups. I do subscribe to GW and they go away on their own, but Doug does not subscribe and he gets the ads and popups. So, they are blocked for him.

    Ya'll have a great day!

    Canna- I am planting my canan seeds today! My nephew is actually going to do it. He is in awe of our gardens and wants his own, so why not feed into his gardening bug a little? LOl I hope and pray he loves it!! I figured I would I would take him to Lowes and let him buy whatever he wants to try! then he can obsess like I do! LOL

    MamaG.....are you back from Big Lot's yet??? Did you have to rent a U-Haul?

    Here are a few of the things I picked up there:

    These are so pretty in person. I guess they are a glazed ceramic. Very heavy and very breakable. Not sure where they will go, but I think they will add a nice touch in the right garden.

    Okay, here's my cool totem. The cashier said it was the only one they got in and wouldn't get any more. It is resin (I think) and pretty heavy. I am going to do a Tropical garden this year and it will fit nicely in there.

    And of course I pick up anything that is a bird. I really loved this peacock. It's not "cheap" looking and it's also pretty heavy.

    They also had a pretty big peacock sitting on top of a column. I loved it, but it was $39.99. I talked myself out of getting it.

    It seemed like they had much more "garden stuff" last year. Maybe they are just slow getting it out. What I'm really waiting for is Target to put out their gardening-related items. I always find really nice stuff there.

    Melissa, hope you enjoyed your walk. It was soooo nice out. I worked in the pond, but decided not to put the bikini on, lol. I didn't want to scare anyone.

    Marea, I'd love to try that. It would be so cool to see their faces when they open the door.
    I was at Wally World yesterday, but didn't see the plant stands. Actually, they didn't have much at all. I was surprised. And all their live plants looked horrible. Looked like they needed a BIG drink.
    Did you go to Big Lots?

    Anita, don't worry, I didn't think you were a sicko. Very funny, though! My sister works at a Dick's Distribution center about 2 miles from my house. She is a manager on one of the dock's. She gets a pretty good discount. Let me know if there's ever anything in particular you (I mean your DH) is looking for. I think she gets 35 or 40% off. For some reason, nobody wants to call me back about the E.O.D.'s. I'll pester them again tomorrow.

    Canna, I was out "plant inspecting" again today. More Crocus starting to pop up, but I think I'm still a long way from seeing any Hosta nubbies. I'm jealous. DH's uncle just came back from vacationing in Hawaii and he brought me a really cool, cobalt blue "tear-drop spinny thing". I couldn't believe he remembered I collected cobalt colored glass.

    Joey, glad everything is going well with nephew. With you as an inspiration, he'll have green thumbs in no time.

    Well, I better go do something. I'll leave you with this picture of baby Rudy, my youngest sister's new puppy. He's 2 mos. old. We love him!

    I think I will have to make a big lots run this weekend if it isn't snowing :( kids are going camping at valley forge, it snows every time they go! but they love it

    joey i am glad to hear things are going well. yes, they are very expensive! It's cheaper to have a lily obsession, and prettier most of the time too

    Hello , Just wanted to take a few mins and check in. I am home again, for good with any luck. I had sugery on Jan 18th and have been so ill since then that I have had to be hospitiziled several times. This last time Valentines weekend I spent 3 days in the hosp. They think it was the flu. I dont know what is was. I was Miseriable thats for sure. Julie is doing well. She has been a little uneasy because of my illness. We have explained to that everythings all right and I will get better. I sure wish Spring would hurry up and get here I think that will be the best medicine. I am so happy for Susan! She and Dan have been so kind to my family. No one deserves happiness more!!! To every one else Thanks so much for all your kind words, pkgs and inspirational cards they are all truley appreciated. I will try to check in more often.

He went last year too and decided he wants to live in the south because ya'll are "so nice" and "no body is in a hurry, fast food is slower than here" it's the little things I guess!

    i 2nd jo joann fabrics has very nice garden stuff and when it's 40% off it's better!

    Morning all!

    My son has a 4 day weekend from school. For some reason, they are off today too. I bought him a set of paint brushes yesterday, so we are going to do some projects today. I bought my DD a wooden step stool to help her use the big potty and will be painting that today. MaryS, I finally found a good hosta rock, so that will be next. Hopefully will get started on it next week :). I had to put the Afgan on hold until I can find more dark purple yarn to match. Be my luck I won't find it again!

    I haven't been to JoAnn's in forever. It is in a very heavy traffic area that I normally don't go near. Since A.C. Moore opened up, I have been going there for crafting supplies. Michaels is way on the other side of town.

    Joey, I haven't started any canna seed, yet. They grow so fast that I think I will wait another month before starting. I have set up lights and have started some palm seeds, cactus seeds (for DS), an avocado seed (for DD), Lotus from Susan :), and some Venus Fly Traps. I have my winter sowing done last month. I am more selective this year and cut it down to half of what I did last year.

    I just got a walking iris in trade. Does anyone grow them?

    Off to the grocery store!

    Hello to everyone - it is a cold day here in Franklin, but it's Friday. Hip Hip Hooray

    Nancy - your seeds are on the way. Hope they do great for you.

    Jo - Your seeds are on the way also. That envelope is packed full. GET READY

    Canna - I did not get an address as of yet to send your tropical sunrise canna seeds. I looked at your list and would love daylilies awesome blossom and blueberry sundae when they get ready to divide. I have these from your want list: eucomis 'sparkling burgundy, canna apricot dream, daylilies canadian border patrol, karen sue, and mauna loa.
    If you are still looking for these plants I do have them. I was in Atlanta and kept seeing the eucomis in people's yards and wanted a start of it so bad. I went to a nursery down there and found it.
    I love the fuzzy yarns out now too. Michaels had a good sale on yarn a week ago. I bought up some cool yarn.

    Anita - The tool gift for baby d is a great idea. I will have to remember that gift for showers. LMK on the seeds you want. The red iris you liked could have been Louisiana iris 'Rhett' it is beautiful. Look it up and LMK.

    MaryS - LMK on the seeds. I want to trade plants for some of your hostas.

    Marea - LMK which Japanese iris you want. I could not find a picture of canna 'lucy'. Is it a dwarf? I love the dwarf cannas. I have the crocosmia bulbs and purple leaf perilla seeds for you.

    Gay - The checks in the mail. (Wow that sounds like what I say at work)LOL Thanks again for thinking about us.

    I hope that's everybody that I needed to let know about trades and etc.

    Finally made it to BIG LOTS for the first time yesterday - they have some really classy small $6 trellises that would be fun for the pea crop.
    I think I saw those metal tray stands you bought, Gloria, very lacy & elegant looking. I wished I had room for them. I also found the iron plant holder I bought at Wally World for $10 for only $5, but not with the cool paint job I got. Ended up just buying a 59 cent trowel even though I spent ALOT of time gazing in the boxed chocolates isle (I realized I'd rather have more daylilies than candy - but I'll bet none of you are surprised to hear that...currently hoping to win more on the L.A.)

    I was paid $8 an hour + gas reimbursement for delivering the flowers - I'm happy with that, and they've asked me back for Mother's Day.

    Gay - I'm so happy to hear all your flowers sold!! I'm sure they were beautiful bouquets & can also imagine you'll do great on Mother's Day, too.

    Melissa - How FUN for your DS! I'd love to see the Robotics championships myself - really fascinating to me. His charming description of the South reminds me of my opinion of Texas formed from a night spent in Amarillo: A very polite culture, the men all dipping their hats and saying "Evenin', Ma'am!"...

    Found my purple yarn!

    Hello everyone

    Sorry I've been so quiet. I'm late in sending out my Jan/Feb box and have been embarrassed that I'm so late. Between illness (kids, mine & DH's) and interviews, I've felt yucky and busy at the same time. I haven't had much time for stores. I know I missed a few birthdays, sorry about that. My brain still is a little muddled and I can't remember more than Ricky - Happy Bday Ricky! I'll get my box out today or Monday - I promise Cathy.

    Good morning everyone! Where is everyone?...no posts since last night! Guess it IS my turn to post!

    Melissa...way to go girl...keep it up!

    Shirley: I emailed you about the seeds and I would love to trade hostas in the spring! If you did not get it LMK and I can try it again!

    Canna...I am excited about the hosta rock. Have you started on your new shade bed yet? I have lots of hostas to send to get you started!

    Wish there was a Big Lots around here! I have Dollar General and they had some real cute mini shepherd hook garden signs for $1. I bought 2 and went back for more the next day! Nothing much out here yet in the way of gardening stuff...just a few seeds and potting soil! Can't you tell I am ready for spring!

    I ordered some more daylilies and (finally)hostas! I am wondering where I will put it all when it comes about May 1!!!!I am running out of shade! I have room for more daylilies in the sun!

    I have a question...What do you do with paper-whites-(narcissus) after they bloom. Do you cut them back? Can they go outside?(later)or are they done for and just throw them out? I got them for Christmas and would like to keep them. Dirtpig (my zone 4 buddy)??? Canna ? Anyone?

    Happy Saturday!MaryS

    Hi all!
    I'm afraid I've been missing out on everything! I'm still going to school and just got a new job finally! Was able to help my "idiot-ex" to save the house--long story, dumb man. ;) Anyway, what's new that I need to know? Trying to catch up on the posts, but so little time! Have the daylilies we ordered arrived?
    We've also got a new dog to deal with--he sort of adopted up after his family moved into town. He's a nice little Australian (sp?) Shephard that was always over playing with our dog Trailor. Apparently he doesn't like it in town in a tiny little yard so I guess he'll be with us now. His name's Petie. I'll try to get a pic of him and Trailor.
    Love my new job, but so far not enough money! I'm going to make them see that I'm worth a whole lot more!! Wish me luck!
    Later--

    I got my huge box from the best rm in the world this morning, here's a photo of some of my goodies:
    {{gwi:1249303}}

    Gloria - I have all the time in the world, don't you fret about sending me stuff!! Just post a photo of your pepto bismol room with new tray/tables and I'll forgive you everything...

    Mary - What I've read about bulbs is that growing in just water they don't build up enough reserve to successfully regrow, but growing out of ordinary season doesn't harm them as long as they get to finish the year normally...

    Becky - I KNEW you would save his farm! *grin* I'd love to hear the story sometime. And, of course, your new job will soon see how valuable you are!

    Canna, I got some walking iris in a trade summer before last, kept them in the pot the first year, nothing happened so this past spring I planted them outside and they multiplies but didn't bloom. I brought them in in pots for the winter and they each have several buds on them right now. I'm not even sure what color they are. The trader said she dug them from different areas to try to get different colors so I can't wait to see them bloom. Mine are in a rather dark spot and budded out while there. They're supposed to do ok in sun or light shade. I'll let you know if they bloom.

    Thanks for your advice everyone on the paperwhites. (Smiling at Glorias first advice)!I may try to plant them outside and see what happens in 2006. Mine are planted in a pot in some sort of potting soil. Till it warms up I will keep them in a sunny window. It is worth a try anyhow. I was not sure if they were winter hardy. Guess I will see!

    Marea, Looks like it was worth the wait! Great box from RM
    You sent me the sedums in the Nov. exchange, right? They are in pots outside and still seem to be alive on my back steps! They must be tough little buggers!

    It was cold, dreary and snowy all day today. Think I will curl up with all the garden catalogues tonight and "dream"about spring!

    One more (dumb) question...I started daylily seeds in January and they are growing like gangbusters. Some are about 4-6 inches tall. Will they slow down? Is there anything I can do. I have a good 2 months till they can go outside. My family room is turning into a greenhouse!I have them under lights about 15-16 hrs. No, Mama G....I can't send them all to you.... it is freezing out!MaryS

    MaryS, once your DL seedlings fill their pots, they will slow down. Here in zone 7, my inlaws are just now starting their seeds in their grow system in the garage.

    Hi Becky and Ellen!

    Dang, Melissa! I was trying a new painting technique with the yarn, LOL! My DS painted with spagetti in preschool. Don't ask me why, maybe pasta is cheaper than brushes.

    My DD just pottied for the first time just a bit ago!!! YIPEE! Finally, after 2 weeks of trying.

    Off to do...something!

    Canna: Just think of the money you will save to buy more plants:) Keep trying and praising her! At my house the girl was much easier than the boy, but maybe it had to do with their personality! DD loved the pretty "big girl panties". DS did not care!!!! He knew better, but he would go hide somewhere to do the "big job".

    GOOD MORNING ALL,

    Ok I got the BigLots fever....found roses for 2 bucks each, got every color they had, some were climbing, and a bunch of other stuff I didn't need but just had to have.....(grin). Spent waaaay too much money between that and Wally World....seems that Wally World has stepped it up a bit as far as the variety of bulbs, etc. I got a few new Hosta's, DL's, Lily's, Dahlia's, Glad's, etc. Was able to get everything in the ground but the Glad's.... Going back today to finish blowing my budget.....

    Been without water for the last 2 days (off, then on, then off)....pipes in the neighbors yard burst. With all that heavy equipment, the bulldozer's, etc., can't get in my own drive... they think they've fixed the problem, then they are right back out here again to realize....it's not fixed. Then they have to dig everything up again, so no water for hours, it's been going on for 2 days and they can't seem to get it right....they are out this morning, again! They have made a mess in the yard, it's raining and mudd everywhere....Well, off to make coffee before the water gets turned off again.

    Everyone have a GREAT DAY!
