Applestar - I was wondering when someone would notice how often I respond lol. I work as a security guard for 10+ hours a day and my employer provides me with wifi as a pass time (10 hours a day 5 day's a week after 3 years get's to be a bit boring lol) So when I'm at work I honestly have nothing else to do BUT respond lol. I'll cut back if it will make things easier.

I think HG helps with my spring fever too. Being here, doing nothing, while my garden is growing and in need of my attention, and my mind is a buzz with ideas for project's in the garden is crazy making. At least I get to talk to people here that are just as nutty about their hobby as I am while I wait to run to the car and get home asap before the sun goes down and I can't get ANYTHING accomplished. :lol:

I had only figured out that you respond by day, and take evenings off! ha ha. She did say that she was going home in an earlier one.

I wouldn't worry about too many posts. I am in several forums, and the most boring thing in the world is to click on a forum and nothing new added! Soon, you just quit clicking on that forum, and soon you just remove the shortcut icon.

Since I joined this forum has never gotten boring!
I have learned alot and expanded my horizons. Of course, I don't agree with all posts, and some things, I simply won't try. But, it is interesting to see what other folks are doing.

I still don't wanna snow ski for instance... ha ha.

Ohhh ozarklady, it's like your peeking over my shoulder lol. I do the EXACT SAME THING. I find forums and sites I enjoy at first, then if the other people on the site don't update enough for me I'm gone! This is actually the first forum that has kept my attention for longer than a week. :oops:



Aaaaaand I did it again lol I responded RIGHT after the last response.... ok I swearz I will stop now ;)

This is a tree in our yard, I took it a few days ago.
Please every one post more pictures of gardens and flowers as I enjoy looking at them. As you can tell I love taking pictures also.
You know the first rule of flower photography? When you see that there is no wind and get your camera the wind starts.

Mrsgreenthumbs I grabbed your photo and made you into a flower for fun. I hope you like it. You can get and down load it at this link. I did not spend but a few moments doing it and the photo of you is very small so it is what it is.

I hope so Ozark Lady, Mrs Green comes off a some one nice so I did not think she would mind and enjoy it.

I forgot to say that this picture will only be up for a few days as your image is not mine; out of respect for you. If you want a better copy I would need a larger photo and you would have to PM me to get a place to send it to.

I will do a few for other people on this site but I only have time to do a few at most. PM me if you want some thing like this flower face. Each person will get their own flower.

yeah, applestar - the real thing, C. sinensis...kept myself from from harvesting anything last year (its first year with me)...so this will be the year to start (!). bloomed from august past frost last year...seemed happy. considering propagating out a few this year..hm. the parts that want to propagate and want to harvest for drinking may have to get a mediator.

My gazing ball. Ventricosa Aureomarginata hosta, Crimson curls heuchera and Tiger eye sumac, I use rocks that look like they came from the moon to hold my gazing ball.

So DD Can I ask a question? How do you deal with the trimming's of the raspberry bushes? I cut my berry's back this last winter (they were getting out of hand) and as I do with all my other yard clipping's I tossed it in a pile to be saved for compost but... these were too prickily to be composted.

mrsgreenthumbs,

I either run the canes through my little chipper shredder, or just pile them along the fence line. Pile them out of the way to rot down slowly.

You could use them to keep your future chickens in line. A thorny wattle fence.

I'm piling all my prickly trimmings -- raspberry, blackberry, rose, and holly -- behind the shed where the groundHOG digs underneath to move in for the summer. :evil:

I feed them to the goats! Unless they are too dry and brittle, then nothing will eat them, so I put them in the hedgerow towards the highway, to keep stragglers out! ha ha.
