Did you know that the Brugmansia, Datura and now Morning Glories are used in the same way. Don't know why people want to go around all drugged up on things that could kill them. goofy people.

Oh I don't know either I think those people got a wrong brain wave going for them. I have had some drugs the the Dr gave me for one reason or another and I didn't like the way they made me feel and I just quit taking them . How can anyone like that kind of feeling. I just don't understand it. I don't even like the feeling after drinking to much and is the reason I don't hardly drink .

Hi Carolyn,
Nice to hear from you!
We are still allowed to grow Poppies for our viewing pleasure, thank heaven.

Charleen,
Is that Bishop's Cap a Monkshood? If it is it's perennial, we have some here. A real pretty purplish blue flower?
I use the annual Salvias for their true blue colors. I have not yet seen a perennial variety in blue, most of them are purple. At least to my eye.
What most folks call "purple" I call fuchsia! LOL

I know, I take enough med. so don't need anything , don't like it but take it because I have too. It is a lot of Young people who do these things. poor little dummies don't realize what happens now will effect them in their old age.

Karen,
I love it! What a splash of color for your yard. Has a cottage garden feel doesn't it? Are those beautiful tall blues Delphinium? I had annual Delphiniums last year for the first time, but they didn't get as tall or full looking as yours, nice!

Fruit trees? Do tell...

It's a new garden, hopefully mine will have the "jungle" look. Can't hardly wait for it to get warmwer and plants start poking their little heads up. I have a few coming on. Have oodles of seeds from the swaps.

Hi Charleen,
I didn't see you around much yesterday, did you take some time off to plant seeds? I am going to finish PH's first article then I am taking an hour off to plant some seeds!
Yesterday I got in an hour of yard cleanup. I can't take much more than that right now, too hard to slog through all the sticky mud. Ugh!
Spring is here! The red-wing blackbirds & robins are back and singing their little hearts out. I'm so happy! Smiling

Chelle, the tall blue ones are larkspur, aka annual delphs. They do best when direct sowed in fall . They sprout and winter over as tiny seedlings, then take off in spring and grow to 4-5 ft. tall. They are taking over my yard, though, and as much as I love them, I think it's another I'm going to have to eliminate them.

This picture shows volunteers in that bed in January. I have 3 beds like it.

Great!! Good Morning. Yes, I planted seed til I ran out of containers. Think I'll cut some milkjugs off and use them. It was really tough not to plant anything in Jan./Feb. but finally March is here and I'm planting. And not a Vegetable seed in the bunch. All flowers. Gourds too.
glad your weather is warming up.

Aha, that's why mine were runty. I started them in the early spring, found out they won't germinate in the house, they like to be seeded outside. They were one of last years experiments that I had to try several ways. I had to tho', true blue & bright yellow are my favorite color combo! They did bloom all summer however, so I was happy.

Charleen,
Are you going to plant veggies later on?

Yes, Hubby does that. We plantedanother Santa Rosa plum tree too. Longears are doing a job on the old one in their pasture. My poor Fig bushes are chewed down too. Want pic? Will get them later.

Can you see the toothmarks high on that tree. It isn't donkey teeth. My dear Darling, Marvelous mule is doing all that dratted damage.
He's fluffy, not lean and mean, just bored...Poor bored baby.

I know, I tried to plant a tree that's supposed to be indestructible in my horse pasture. Guess what?....It's destroyed. LOL
We need to put our "big dogs" to work, is what we need to do! Lazy, bored, lovable.... beasties.
