Garden Centres

Before I go to a garden centre, I do everything the right way. I go outside and plan what I'm going to plant. This here, some of that over there, make a list, colour code it, etc. Then when I get there, I buy my old standbys, and then I might as well just put the list in my mouth and eat it. Because I get excited by all the beautiful varieties of plants and flowers, and start to unravel. I buy this little beauty here, that there, 3 of these, 8 of those on and on. Then I get home and find that most of what I bought won't do for the spots around my house. Some grow only in Alaska under a rock between Sept. 13-18, some in Finland in a fjord. Egypt in 104 temp. between Aug23- 30. Tennessee in the springtime, and in Windsor when the moon is in the seventh house and Jupiter is in Mars. Back to the garden centre to try and resort this out. Back home with more impatiens, geraniums, and petunias.

.....Athan for a boy. That's what we would have named our if we would have had one. I remember having morning sickness so bad I would puke everytime I entered my house. There was some kind of smell that only my sensitive nose picked up. Horrible time!!!

My friends and I are still here, sort of, some of us hanging on by a thread, so to speak. This thread, for example.

Luv2, puking is not so bad. I used to bring a magazine into the bathroom every morning to have something to read while I awaited my daily vomit. You could use House and Home for this purpose!

Elise, the botox thing gave me hysteria flashbacks for hours. You had me in stitches... and here I thought the idea of botox was to avoid stitches.

BJ,just like Luv2, you tell it like it is. You have the gift of gab too, I can tell - that glib tongue travels well from the keyboard.

You may have noticed the mysterious thread deletions. I think it a shame, because some of my best work was in those threads. All that time thinking up four syllable words wasted! Elise, I checked and your spider threads are still here. I hope they don't ever fall prey to the deleting...

In case we decide to return full force, please
keep the humour up. I would hate to return to find this forum looking like the Style at Home one.

The clamp will help alleviate future wrinkles, no Botox.

I am feeling very Othello at the moment :D

Finland doesnt have plants due to nothing but plains! Much like Alberta I hear, perhaps why no rats with respect for themselves want to live there? :D

Suggest you send DH to gardening centre, he would be too scared not to follow your step by step instructions.

I'll check it out. But I think I'm too young for Botox treatments.
