I'm still waiting on my Coneflowers (Echinacea) from Spring Hill Nursery. It's showing an estimated delivery date of 6/5/09 - 6/8/09. But, that keeps changing. So, we shall see.

I found most of the others that I was looking for, at a local nursery! I was SO excited, because they ended up being MUCH cheaper, and I didn't have to pay shipping and handling!

Of course, I haven't figured out where I am going to plant all of them yet! LOL! I always do that! Buy a bunch of plants, and then think "OH! Where am I going to put them?" They are all lined up outside, waiting patiently to go into the ground! Thank goodness for all of the rain we've been getting, because I was having to water them constantly!

After looking around more on-line, I found SO MANY different kinds and colors of Coneflowers that I want to get. It's going to take time to get all of them! Only bummer is that to get extra plants from the ones you grow, you have to divide the plants, you cannot use the seeds, because the plants that come from the seeds, tend to revert back to the original plant coloring.

Anyone want to come help me figure out where to plant all of my new pretties? They need to be in the sun! And need soil that drains well! So, that leaves out the most obvious place for them, which was down along the fence!

Hmmmm! Thinking.........Thinking!

OK! Enough of that! It makes my brain hurt! LOL!

Off to make a smoothie!

I couldnt figure out why you hadnt updated your blog but were still so active in leaving comments.... then I realised that the link I had saved for you was ONLY to your coupon post from last year and not to your homepage. DUH! I remember reading about the zoo... Please laugh at me now....

Now that we got that out of the way, I am posting a link to your HOMEPAGE on my blog so that I will never lose you again. OMG, I am such a dingbat!

I am also overwhelmed with jealousy because of your gardening this year! We are doing a huge landscape project that has the majority of our yard torn up and what plants I do have are on the side of the house that gets the least sun... so I only have green leaves, no blooms. I am so desperate that I am about to sneak over to the neighbor's house at midnight and dig up one of her lovely lilac bushes! Shhh! She will never notice!
