RE: WEATHER!! Now tornados

I love it, Fran!  Dad had a house plant that mom hated.  She would holler at
it and call it all sorts of uncomplimentary names and that plant thrived on
it.  She'd neglect it and it didn't care; it grew all the more.  Does anyone
have a degree in plant psychology to explain these things?  LOL!

I wonder sometimes! I'm always pulling up tree seedlings from that tree
and from nuts that the squirrels plant. When I try to let them live,
they die. If I ignore them, pull them out, mangle them, they grow like a
weed! Go figure!

And ever since I've been trying to nurture the bindweed to grow around
the doghouse, I end up having less and less of it each year. I think
I'll see if I can start a plot of nut grass. Maybe that will encourage
it not to grow around my yard!
