You have to fix the leaves?



When I was a kid I wanted to be older, this CRAP is NOT what I expected.

My lilac bushes have leaf buds.
My daffodils have buds (well, some of them do).
it has been so wet here it is impossible to work outside.
I have treated the pond once, have a lot more to do to get rid of all of the algae.

Yep, there are some trees that keep their leaves all year but shed old ones in the spring as new ones come in.

Can you tell that Cruzer doesn't like Colorado? Must have had a traumatic experience as a kid.

I am thinking of digging up my old herb bed and planting something like zinnias.
Or even marigolds, bwahahah!!

Just to get KT's dander up.

Zinnias are multi colored, easy to grow, and you can cut them.
I bet KT would LOOOOOVE them.

Continuing to do a Rugby......KT says she has moonflowers. I think I would like those, they look pretty, and they say they smell good.
Perhaps I should try to plant some outside my bedroom window?

Morning glories would be better.

MY grandfather loves zinnias, he gets the seeds and replants them. Seems like to much work to me.

I think I have some pictures of them somewhere, should I dig them up?

Still single, can't imagine why.

So outside of it smelling good, what else do you do with mint? And does it smell good just sitting in a pot, or do you have to powder it?

well, mostly for the smell, heh.
But you can put it in tea or in some desserts.

I grow lavender in pots as well.
Dry the flowers, yum.
Actually, they can be used in cooking desserts as well, although I don't use it like that.

well kind of. but to get the best smell you have to pick off a leaf and rub it in your fingers.
Don't ever plant it in the ground though....it sends out runners and you will never get rid of it!

Smells really good when you are yanking it out of the ground! Somehow there is always more the next year!
