Here's some nice cocoa!

Wow I love thinking about those summer plants!!
G and Jamie--I am going to notch/soak those moonvine and morning glory seeds for sure great tip!
We have two clumping bamboo plants and they don't spread (haven't for 6 years anyway), so I'm hoping that I can root them from a cutting. So far the deer have been taking their cuttings during the winter--I'm not doing the garlic cayenne pepper shaky shaky dance in this weather.
I had great luck with the love lies bleeding in full sun, Jamie. Not easy to grow from seed, I cheated and took it to a greenhouse, they grew it for me, of course for the price of a regular flat of flowers, but it was worth it.

Houston we are good to go...actually Okesmos we are good to go and will see you all Saturday.

The weather has cleared and we can expect sunny weather through to Saturday yippee going to leave a little later than originally intended to give the west side of Toronto a bit more time to clean up the roads and miss rush hour.

Jamie I would sure like it if this little trailer was in the South. Great idea - I will be in for a girls week holiday in the south!

Puppies are going to stay at home - just no time to get their letters from the Vet - we always travel with a clean bill of health letter so we do not run into any problems at the border. They will be fine at home although we never leave them....Our friends across the road will come and spend the night(s) with them until the Grandpaw and Nana arrive!!!

Carol I don't think I would call myself a real woman - just a sucker for punishment. But with the dishwasher door spring now sprung, the snowblower auger belt toasted this afternoon and the Yukon fixes yesterday - that is the three bad karmas - I am not counting the 69 Globe Trotter cause she did not move - only moving things
So only good Karma for the rest of the trip.

By the afternoon it was a lovely sunny day with a beautiful sky - Red Sky at Night Sailers Delight!!!

No heated seat though - but I have a tough butt so I am sure I can survive.

Jamie love your pics - girls I will have to get into the seed thing - I collect seeds from my perennials and mix them all together and toss them into the ground and hope for the best. I really never know what is going to come up where in my gardens. Like I said before - I have no idea what the flowers all are just love to take photos...

I think TinSista needs the medal here - always there with a great idea every twist and turn of our arrangments what a troupper. thanks Steph can't wait to meet you guys....

Chow... signing off till we get back - have to get my beauty sleep - actually I have housework to do now

You gals are blessed...getting together..ENJOY and write all about it on your return. Jamie, thanks for the warm photos. It is 0 and below here with LOTS of snow. Sharon made a fine decision leaving the dogs at home with the grandparents this time. OH..Rusty Rosee? Just learned of the new name.

Tin sista your red plant is beautiful. G. thanks for calling my attention to a Moon Vine. Do you think it will grow in New York State? Never heard of it.

Bamboo...you must have a different breed. We have "IT" at our cottage on the Lake and it has taken over our flower beds. The flower beds are on a hill and difficult to weed. There aren't many weeds but the BAMBOO...come take it away. I have discovered why I was having problems posting photos in my threads. My photos are 1280 x 960 and I must reduce them to 1024 x 1024 or less. Now try and figure...how to do that?

Pass the black coffee with some Brandy please.

Hi, Aria. Moon Vine is a kissin' cousin to Morning Glory, I believe. If you can grow Morning Glory Vine in New York, Moon Vine should be fine too. Just as MG opens in early am with first light and is wilted and gone by late afternoon, so MV opens with sunset and is faded by morning light. You need both to have blossoms all day and all night long ~G

Hey, Silver Sisters, I just wanted to call your attention to the Rivettes Cafepress store that's set up now with the "We Can Tow It!" logo on wearables and fun stuff. I'm gonna wait for Sharon to get back home to help with re-sizing the logo for other small items, like a keychain for your Airstream keys, but just let me know if you want me to add any items that aren't there.

Happy shopping!

-J

Hi Aria,
Wow that rug is beautiful!! I'd love to learn to do that!

I have fargesia nitida and murielae, they are very pretty--fountain like. That is a bummer about the invasive bamboo, we have a problem in Michigan with a plant called purple loosestrife, it is a very pretty plant with purplish flowers but takes over so fast it crowds out our native wildflower species. It is amazing how fast it propagates.

Jamie I just love that rivette store!! Camping and shopping, whats not to love about that?

Annie, This is old rags braid and loop rug. I have one made out of wool strips. Remember: you braid "just once" with the three strands and then work front to back back to front. No sewing ot the braids together. It lasts forever. I can make just braided faster and easier.

tin sista, your fargesia nitida bamboo is NOT like ours. And I love your purple
loosetrife. I would not mind having it spread. LOVELY

As you know we raise Call Ducks (photo posted) and I have their barn area fenced in surrounded with flowers, bushes etc. They walk around and fertilize and Make The Garden Grow. They enjoy watching me weed and work as they walk in the flower beds. They are small and just add to the beds..no mess...no damage. We love them.

This Spring we have two going to Iowa. They are Show Ducks. We have a magician who uses them in his show.

Tin Sista -- I'm not sure about bamboo, but some invasives aren't invasive at all depending on the variety and where they're planted. For example, morning glory and moonflower can both be so invasive that they're outlawed in some states. In other areas, they're grown just like normal annuals or perennials with no problem. Bambo is definitely worth a try! I think that purple loosestrife is considered invasive anywhere. Beautiful though!.

Aria -- that rug is gorgeous! What's it braided out of?

Here in our plant nurseries, we find beautiful hybrid loosestrife perennials that are stated to be non-invasive. My experience here in mid-Mo is that they do not self propagate, but the base plant will mature and increase in size, but in a good way. We love driving in northern-MN and seeing the vibrant rosy-purple colored flowers in roadside ditches, but they are dangerous invaders. As I understand it, they produce little wildlife seed themselves and crowd out the native plants that would support birds and little animals. Like the Sirens of mythology! They tempt you and then Wham! ~G

Aria, what do you mean by the front to back/back to front looping with no stitching? I love the look of your rug--thick and warm, and vibrant with color. Can you give us directions? Thanks, G By the way, what is a Call duck? I wish we could have hens and ducks here, but our German Shorthair thinks his mission in life is to patrol our place and pond to keep them bird-duck-goose-heron free. The birds don't care: they flutter to the willows and back to the feeders as soon as Moose is out of sight. However, the pond birds have learned to fly over and land in ponds of neighbors without a "Moose."

G, You cut the strips of old rags or new material about two inches wide
The first rug I posted was made of old cotton rags...yes rags.
It is necessary to fold edges in and stitch the strips (this rug is new wool)

As in braiding you need 3 strips Braid once

Take one of the strips and loop in the previous row (going front front of rug to the back of the rug). Take that same strip and bring it to the front and pull it through. Continue and repeat

You have additional strips ready and you attach and keep repeating as if you were braiding. It is making a braided rug and once the braid is made you do not stitch the braids you've made....instead you loop back and forth.

They are very durable...last forever.

Call Ducks....I posted a photo. Did you see them? They are tiny yellow when they are born. As an adult they are the size of a baby duck. They are very small. There is a Call Breeders Association. They come in many colors.
We had other colors. Now we find it is easier to breed only Whites. They are show Ducks. We have a Pond and a fenced yard. The yard is full of perennials, bushes, and some climbing scarlet runner beans. A Duck Barn
and a Duck Nursery.
