Jamie, a gal after my own heart, boxes of pottery, etc. for mosaics, can't pass up FREE stuff then wonder where I can put it. My thought of dying with all these treasues (only to me) around has entered my mine more times than I can count.

I wish I could plant a lot of the flowers you can, one of my favorite is the bleeding heart. I had a wonderful plant outside our backdoor when I lived in Minnesota. If I would move to the mountains I could have them, but I don't want all that snow and cold around me any more. Another is the lilac, they are so wonderful.

Are bleeding hearts only hardy in cooler climates? I thought they'd grow anywhere! I just started with those a year ago in a shade spot along the west side of the garage, I put in all whites and did have to replace one this spring but the others did well. Then another neighbor brought me a great big root of a pink ones just last week; that I will split so one is by the peonies & hydrangia group, and the other in front of some tall coneflowers, daffs, tulips and lillies. I have 3 more kinds of daylillies arriving next week. I am determined to minimize lawn in the sunny area because in the other areas, mostly all that does well is the things dug from the woods, hostas, and Jurrasic park plants (I forgot what they really are so I call them that because another neighbor whom I got them from said that's how her grandaughter refers to them). I'll have to look them up again.

Love lilacs too and there are several in the yard but they are very old and now that the trees have grown so, they only get a couple of blooms. Several years ago I dedicated a sun spot and planted some yellow ones from Spring Hill. Their guarantee is that they will last a lifetime but it did not say it would take a lifetime for them to grow....they are about 3FT high now and haven't even thought of flowering. Oh well.... Hilarious! Maybe I can get a crypt made out of my broken porcelain and they can burry me under yellow lilacs. Rolling on the floor laughing

Elaine, I'm not so very far behind you in age, and when I get to 72, no one had better tell me not to eat popcorn for breakfast, ice cream for lunch and pizza for dinner! And smoke two cartons a week, if I want. (And while I'm at it, if I want to spend the day in my nightgown, I'll do that too!)

May you live long and enjoy life while it's still here.
