It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

I love the new thumbnail image!

I placed my order with Texas Water Lilies last night (sale on MamaJack's co-op cubit)... very excited about everything I picked out... funny how quickly I "filled" my 8 new big containers! I guess I need a pond. Or a lake. *Blush*

Texas Waterlily co-op on mamajack's has been extended until Feb. 20, because some folks missed the deadline and asked Dusty & Jesse very sweetly... :-)

Anybody near me is welcome to ship with my box (saves a few bucks, especially ifyou're just trying one or two).

I had a good browse there last night when I couldn't get right to sleep... they have a digital version of their catalog on their site, which I really enjoyed because I like "paging through" a pretty catalog. There are a couple of little things that tempt me... one is even on sale... Whistling

I also saw a couple of really lovely trellis/arches, so now I know if I find anything I like as well in Philly next week and it's less than $150, it's a done deal! I think the garden just needs an arch in it somewhere... and maybe a couple of grapevines... wouldn't that make a nice doorway for the little area we're planning to use for Joyanna's sunflower house this year?

I pictured that archway covered by grapevines with Joyanna walking thru it to her sunflower house. You really need to do it and send us some pictures. What a lovely sight this will be!!!

I'm tempted by that 'slam full' Alstroemeria. I think it's marginal enough here to avoid the invasiveness. How nice that mamajack gives you a heads up about that.
SOmeone tried to give me Knautia but it died- she loves that though.

Jill, just be careful with the grapevines, if you don't pick all the grapes as soon as you can they attract tons of bees and yellow jackets Thumbs down We have them and there are always more grapes than we can use so I leave them for the mockingbirds, but tons of bees too.

That's a good point, Ronnie... bees we have in abundance, and we're fine with that (Joyanna does know they are "no touch" because they will sting if they get scared.. yes, I'm sure she'll eventually step on one or something, but so far so good), but yellow jackets I can do without!

I saw a big arbor at the Philly show that was planted with cherry tomatoes... they were in containers overhead, but as quickly as they grow and as big as the cherry tomato vines seem to get, they would be good candidates for an arbor!

Hey, Jill! That cherry tomato arbor was fabulous, wasn't it? Thumbs up

I did want to add another issue with grapevines in the neighborhood. Our next-door neighbor planted a huge trellis with them some years ago, and I cannot tell you how much our yards have been overrun with grapevines since then. We've always had some, courtesy of the birds, from where ever, but it was just here and there. But now, we've lost entire shrubs in the blink of an eye as the vines have devoured them. You'd be amazed and not in a good way. Blinking

If I do them at all, I had my eye on the "seedless" grape varieties... better for munching, and less chance that they'll get thuggish. Thanks!

Hurray! Of course you would be a responsible gardener, Jill! Wish you lived next to me! Lovey dubby I'm not sure why the neighbor planted them at all - he never did anything to them or with them. He was an elderly man of Italian heritage, so maybe it reminded him of his homeland?

The aforementioned neighbor is also the one who planted 10 (TEN!!!!) wisteria plants along the split rail fence between our yards. Grumbling I was cutting that stuff back for a couple of years, and finding it creeping literally 30 feet into the yard! Blinking He's since moved, and I was able (with their permission) to cut it back, dig it out, and spray the heck out of it. There's still a random sprout or two, but nothing compared to what it was.
