So thankful to Sarath at http://onembps.com/ for re-writing my blog in Drupal and managing it on his web server.  Now Jennifer can take a break from all Mom's questions.  Thank you Sarath !

Mom's Hibiscus

2869

Look what happens to a Lord Baltimore Hibiscus in a cooler climate.  This Lord Baltimore Hibiscus was purchased in Texas and brought home to Chicago where it has sustained freezing cold winters, has been all covered up in snow for months and has come back every year bigger and better than ever. 

Thank you Jennifer !

Earlier this year the server where P&B Garden lived was hacked.  Thank goodness for children with technology smarts.  Jennifer fixed one of my favorite hobbies for me.  Thank you Jenn !    I have so much catching up to do now.  So fun !

Stop the Spread of Fire Ants !

2869

I have been following the efforts made by the Corpus Christi Independent School District and the Texas Legislature after a 13 year old boy was killed by fire ant stings on the football field in Corpus Christi in 2013.

Winter Bulbs

2869

It was a very warm winter in North Texas and this was the first year I left my bulbs out in the conservatory through the entire season. The amaryllis just loves the heat and I got the biggest, most spectacular flowers ever. I dedicate this flower to two lovely women, Rita and Vonnie.

Happy New Year 2016

2869

This year we welcomed our new grandbaby Tae and son-in-law Kent to our family. We achieved many of the goals that we set this year and are thankful for so many things.

Long Time No Post

2869

It has been several months since I posted to P&B Garden. This was an exciting summer for Paul and I. We celebrated the birth of little Tae Alexander, Alaya's 1st birthday, family coming to visit and Jennifer's marriage. With that came an unstoppable busy feeling around P&B Garden.

Forcing Bulbs Results

2869

In a previous post I wrote about forcing bulbs. I usually force amaryllis bulbs only at Christmas, but have decided to do this year round.

Brrrr... What happened to Spring?

2869

When I lived in Chicago, I used to love March, because I knew winter was almost over. There was the old saying, "March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb", but since I moved to Dallas this old saying did not hold true, as March was already a lamb, until now. What happened?

Conservatory Doors Installed

2869

This year my goal is to master the forcing of bulbs in water as I celebrate the completion of 6 months of allergy shots. Paul has completed the design and oversight of the construction on the doors to my safe garden haven and there is no dirt involved when you force bulbs in water.
