Have fun going out, Patricia!

Patricia, I am happy to read that your sidewalks and roads are friendly to you and your scooter. I can just see you zipping around like a bird free of its cage. Singing a little song, maybe.

Patricia, very good news about your scooter having power ... and off you will be going very soon. Is all your snow gone? Very unusual for our part of the world. I just read where Spokane's watershed has only 46% of its needed snow and moisture pack.

Patricia, you made my day, with Rick being in the greenhouse.

I had Joe Pye Weed for a couple of years, but it didn't come. I am surprised because it looked so hearty. My year of playing the game of anti-cancer I don't remember seeing it. It was so pretty. 

Sweet Joe Pye Weed

Mine was the same color as this photo, it was about 3 feet tall and attracted my birds and bees and butterflies flittered in often. 

Comment by Randall Smith on February 21, 2015 at 9:08am

I'm not sure if I know what Joe Pye looks like. Wildflowers aren't my thing--identification wise.

Normally, my silver maple tree has large buds on it by now. Zippo. It's a good thing I don't get depressed. Anxious, definitely!

Joan, that owl web site was the very one I looked at when I researched pellets! Thanks, anyway.

Joan, I'm beginning to think I'll never see spring. It's coming down again.
Daniel, l wonder if it's the same as what grows here. It gets over four feet tall. A nice, large bloom. Rather a dull color but it is a wonderful home for many critters. Butterflies and bees being the top two. It's hardy and will grow almost any place. Except heavy shade.

Good morning world! A nice foggy morning, just right for April. OH! this is going to be an interesting growing year! 

All the little snow piles disappeared, the hellebores buds have grown to be about the size of a quarter, the day lilies show a tiny bit of growth. Everything seems to be ready to explode into the first green of the year.

The snowpack is 66% of normal and needed for late summer. I suppose the dams between here and you, Daniel, will fill all their reservoirs.  

Kathy, that is a mighty drop. Hope you have help shoveling.  

Randy, I assume you found all the information you need about owl pellets. Intrigued, I went on a hunt and found this

All about owl pellets

I didn't know that! Fun to learn something each day.

I found some seeds fir Joe pye weed on line. I might buy some. It's considered excellent forage for honeybees.
Comment by k.h. ky on February 20, 2015 at 2:42pm
Randall, do you grow any Joe pye weed in your backyard habitat? I see it along the roads and fields every place but don't have any here.
It's supposed to be the best thing for butterflies. I'm going to transplant some this year. If it ever warms up.
