you know you're a madgardener when you're sitting in the theater,
watching "Return of the Kings" and you catch yourself telling your
spouse that the bright red flowers outside Sam Gamgee's house at the
end of the movie are very healthy nasturtiums.............
Nope. You have to search websites and find out who *grew* the
nasturtiums. Unless, of course, your own are comparable. I've never
been able to nurture a respectable nasturtium. But I know what you
They do much better in cool weather. Mine go great till about May, then poop
out and start up again in September. Of course for those who don't know, I live
in USDA Zone 8b, Austin, Texas.
We have two short growing seasons here, rather than one long.
lmao! /looks out of window at woods across road
They can stay weedy over here. I have enough to contend with with my
I do confess to removing dead leaves in nurseries... and almost choking
when I see how pot bound some of the plants are :-/
Actually, this is what got me into the industry. I used to go to my favorite
garden center all the time. I'd walk around looking at plants, pulling weeds,
cleaning the plants, even watered some. The owner came over to me one day and
asked if I'd like to work there. I quit my 18 dollar an hour (20 years ago)
job and worked for 6 dollars an hour at the garden center. I never looked back.
After a year I was the manager and director of the herb division. I went to
school, became a grower and that was that.
I've actually pulled a weed during a daylily tour.
But never ever dead head in a daylily garden, you never know if they are
And if that new place up the road ever gets going, I just might start
pulling weeds myself!

Yes, I never felt so free. I am starting to grow again. My neighbor has more
acreage than we and isn't using an inch of it. Next year I am going to buy two
larger greenhouses and pay her rent from November till March. Clearly, I can
sell what I grow, since I did last spring and this fall.
I'd love to make 5,000 dollars a year, but that is pipe dreams!
LOL... yep, I saw them too. I know there was a lot of talk about they started 2
years before to landscape for the shooting... 2 years for the plants to mature
look like they been there a while. wasnt it an incredible movie? Ingrid

yes absolutely incredible. I can't wait now for them to release the
DVD to complete the set we've gotten already. (I have a bad habit of
purchasing the first release and then they came out with the extended
versions. This time I will hold back and wait until I know it's the
only version they're releasing. I told my husband it was a nice back
up DVD collection we have and he just says "yeah, right" but he loves
these movies too. Starz was playing the extended version back to back
with the release of Two Towers this weekend, but I pointed out to him
that the Two Towers version was the first release and not the extended
version. But it was nice to see both of them and then go to the Return
of the King the next morning. (boy was he glad I purchased the
tickets online for mattinee and we got there 45 minutes early for best
seating. The place filled up completely and they were showing it in
two theaters where we were)
Do wait. They will release it again in a three picture set, probably with about
15 DVDs! I still haven't seen any of these films, nor Harry Potter films, but I
will catch up. I'm waiting for The Matrix to come out in a box set. That was
the most about Buddhism in any film that I've seen, sans Seven Years in Tibet or
my problem would be that I have the extended first two, and I wouldn't
be able to afford a boxed set. You ain't seen the Harry Potter
films???? Honey I don't get out and even I"VE seen the Harry Potter
films and have them on DVD <g> (I keep begging son to find his books
so I can READ them.........and this summer, THIS SUMMER the next one
is due out! This is starting to get fun. Makes getting well into 50
worth the wait. I had fun as a twenties and some during my 30's but my
Crone teen years are a riot. Who knew?? <gBSEG> Even the re-release
of Peter Pan looks like it's worthy of the story. Now if only they'd
do a REAL version of the dark story about Mary Poppins. She was never
a wholesome rosy cheeked nanny. She was a witchly, stern character and
when I read her story one rainy day in my huge over sized closet, I
had nightmares for weeks.................Another book I'd just love to
find a copy of is The Water Babies.........sigh. My search has gone on
for this book for decades. I remember the original one in my
elementary school in Nashville I checked out continuously with
rememberance of Chimney sweepTom and Mrs. Doasyouwouldbedoneby and
Miss Beasyouhavealwaysbeen and the waterbabies..................if I
EVER find a copy of that with the original prints throughout the book,
I will be a happy bookworm...............
