Good morning to all my gardening friends. Well here it is a new year.
Doesn't feel any different, except I seem to have an infestation of
gremlins lurking in the newsgroup servers mucking up my capability of
downloading current posts from my favorite and only newgroup that I
frequent. Well I am not going to panic. It does no good. and yes,
I've tried the rec.gardens setting in my Outlook Express, I've tried
FreeAgent, it just sits there, and I even tried Xnews and it told me
there was a time out session in place. My Outlook Express informed me
there was a time out session and asked if I wanted to cancel or wait.
I waited until I had to go to bed. I do hafta werk today :)
So in desperation, I decided to go thru Google.com. That worked. So
for now until the server fixes whatever problem they're having, I'll
check here for a short bit.
the fairies have been waking up some of my houseplants this week. You
all know about the Korean Crinum that Zhan sent me years ago. Well it
has well over 23 blossoms between the two spikes now with the perfume
waifting up the stairs that lead outa Squire's dragon cave. The
oxalis green and gold and Rubra are intermittedly blooming great
yellow trumpet shaped flowers (they're huge in comparrison to the size
of the plants, one looks like a red tree, the other like a bush under
the red "tree" in the pot that sits in front of my nook window).
There is another bloom spike on older sanseveria plants, and I think I
see buds on some cactus. Still no sign of pointy heads popping out of
the soil in the empty pot that I know houses the Blood Lily. The
fairy that's in charge of that one likes to fool me and jumpstart it
when I'm not looking.
I will holler at you all later on when the server is working again. I
hope everyone is well and I'll ramble at you later!
