Spud, your photo of Rose of Sharon is so pretty. Is that a plant in your garden, or in Daniel's? I will have to look into that plant to see if it will fit in my jungle. I love the color and pattern.

Yes, when I first saw the blossoms, they looked like the Washington Hawthorn blossoms of my tree. I planted mine after a trip to Ireland where Washington Hawthorns were grown as hedgerows, forming beautiful and fragrant separation of roads from fields and between fields. They are fragile trees, break easily in a wind storm and that is how mine died. Not to worry though, there are lots of sprouts running in all directions to restore your broken tree if it happens to yours. It is a lovely tree and I am glad you have one, even if it is considered a weed. Bee songs emanate from it in a lovely, constant hum.

Joan yes. A hawthorne. I was thinking, it was you who identified it.... yes? No? They are considered a weed tree. I like them for bee forage.

Daniel, did you ever find the name of the tree on your property that you described in Comment by Sentient Biped on May 9, 2013 at 9:39pm

"Any ideas as to identity of this tree?  I don't know.  It reminds me of spirea, but much bigger.  There is a row of them on a neglected area on my property.  They are near a creek that runs in ..."

Sauerkraut is good with blue cheese and mushrooms.

Daniel, your Rose of Sharon seedling is very attractive:

Never liked 'kraut, but a good suggestion, Patricia.

Did up a batch of sweet corn to freeze yest. Picked, shucked, boiled water, then realized I didn't have enough ice to cool it down quickly. It'll still be good come January. Now what to do with 6 heads of cabbage. I still have freezer slaw from 2012!
