|Mary, you are always welcome to ramble here. I have enjoyed reading your posts since before you were helping with the lambing. Much as Sharon did, you have a real knack for putting the day to day into words and you do paint some lovely word pictures.
I am so sorry about your garlic and peonies. I do hope the owls are okay. Sorry for your neighbors losing their crops. Mother Nature is still pretty unhappy it seems....floods, hail storms and freezes in May, rampant fires, tornados and heavy rains...Oh my. We are supposed to be caretakers, not destructive pillagers. Some folks just don't seem to understand that, nor take the message to heart. I too have plants to share. Not a lot is going to bloom this year as so much soil was washed away or buried things and I have lots of stuff sitting in rescue pots. Our group of gypsies is pretty good about sharing what we have with each other and you are welcome to list what you want/must replace.
Smiley, you asked about the clematis...it was supposed to be Clematis roguchi The President But it was mislabeled.
Most of the plant tags floated away or got buried. I am just happy to have saved the ones I did, even though I no longer have their names. I lost my C 'Belle of Woking' A huge white bloom and my C 'Polish Spirit' A rich deep purple
I am afraid I am not one to chase points and keep track of substitutions...I do okay once I know calories per serving of things I like (especially 'cuz I write it down in my food notebook) Yeah, i have one of those. Jim has Type 2 diabetes so he has all kinds of info laying around. Fortunately he does not require insulin injections, but is able to do diet and meds.
What I don't know is why books are written.
