Re: My DREAM Solitaire from CVB/LAD!!

wow-so beautiful! The pills made me bust out laughing, I gotta say.

it's funny too, having people on my FB and forgetting their screen name after "knowing" them otherwise, and then going "Oh hey, I recognize that cute beyond words bebeh! I know who this is!"

Re: Resetting my chrysoberyl

I do! My only concern is having eight prongs on my chryso-I don't want it to be too busy on it. I think I would ask for the swoops between prongs to be out a little more too, just a little bit so you can see them.

Re: Packrat's yard 2016

He can't even remember where he got it. I can't ...

Re: Packrat's yard 2016

Said it before, beyond beautiful. The neighbors must worship you for what you've accomplished. It kinda runs the gamut. We've had one neighbor tell us to knock it off b/c we were making everyone else look bad. That neighbor later threw her gloves down, yelled across the street "I give up. I'm ...

Re: The OTHER SMTB - Show Me The BLOOMS

sideways, sorry! So, the funny story---the orange honeysuckle in the previous picture? That was a clipping from the same plant as this one. All of our honeysuckle clippings are from the same original grouping of three plants on the stump bed. Started as two reds and a yellow, or two yellows and a re...

Re: Packrat's yard 2016

Thanks everyone! :wavey: I always feel hesitant, like I'm bragging, and I hate that feeling, but I like to share b/c we've worked so stinking hard on it. It makes me happy to be out there.
