RE: now-- plant shopping today

Chris: I am only familiar with the Seder meal our church does during
Lent to celebrate the Last Supper. I assume you are talking about the
Jewish Passover custom. Please fill me in on what traditional foods are
served as well as what Scripture passages are read, as I am interested
in hearing about this. You can email me privately if you wish. Thanks
for contributing to my ecumenical education. :-)

Kitty,<br><br>Your nursery trip made me wish for a good planting day.
It's cloudy, cool,<br>windy and all round dreary today on Long Island. I
must however get out in<br>the garden, so I just have to bundle up. It's
the wind that annoys me the<br>most, but living by the water, it's just
something I have to put up with!<br><br>I'm off from school this week,
so I'm taking care of a bunch of daylily trip<br>projects. Actually, I
working on them. They won't be completed until after<br>next summer's
convention is over! <br><br>Yesterday, I made the Passover Seder in my
house. My son referred to it as<br>"the circus". I managed to roast the
hard boiled eggs, instead of boiling<br>them (I never remember how long
to let them boil. I guess I left them<br>unattended a little too long).
Chicken grease spilled in the oven and was<br>smoking and I slightly
burnt my mother-in-laws "noodle" pudding when<br>warming it up. There
were three guests in their mid 80's at the table.<br>Everyone had a cane
or walker. We have to shout for my dad because he<br>doesn't hear (and
he shouts back). His guest doesn't see very well. My MIL<br>didn't have
any complaints about ailments last night, so it was quiet on her<br>side
of the table! She's really a great mother-in-law, as they go. My
BIL<br>called from CA in the middle of things and got into a heated
discussion with<br>my DH! My other BIL took pictures of all of us on his
phone to send to CA.<br>Oh., it was just a typical family meal! I did
love to hear my DH read the<br>Hebrew passages. There's something
stirring about it, sort of like reading<br>the Christmas story out loud
from the Bible. Oh, we managed to sing some<br>Hebrew songs to make
things more festive!<br><br>Happy gardening and wishing a good Passover
to all who celebrate!<br><br>Chris<br><br><br><br><br>-----Original

I stopped in one of my favorite nurseries.<br>I had a small gift

picked up a Hakoneckloa - Japanese Forest Grass - because<br>I've never
had one and it seemed about time. I got a Tradescantia
'Concord<br>Grape' because my T. 'Sweet Kate' seems to be coming back so
well. and I<br>picked up a Liatris, can't recall which one. I have

a smaller version would have worked!<br>><br>> Since it is cold here,
decided to drive out to the large greenhouse a few<br>> miles south of
here. It is the largest one in my area for unusual annuals<br>> and some
common perennials. (also the cheapest).<br>><br>> Found a variegated
leaf brugmansia there which is about 3 ft (including<br>pot)<br>> high
for only a couple dollars more than that little one was. It is
still<br>in<br>> my car in the attached garage for tonight!<br>><br>> I
am not sure just what is going on this year with plants, but I
started<br>> collecting small annuals to make up hanging/standing pots.
I suddenly seen<br>> all these pre-made assortments there. Many had the
same plants that were<br>on<br>> my cart. Checked the price and decided
it to buy them instead. Basically,<br>it<br>> cost me the same for the
arrangements (which the flowers are already<br>> established and
larger)as it would have for the individual plants.... and<br>> the
containers are a freebie. I can't see how this is profitable for
him,<br>> with the labor, dirt and conta

er included. BTW, the ones I bought are<br>not<br>> in those plastic
things... they are either in white wrought iron, wood,<br>> baskets, and
other cutesy stuff. Amazing.... anyways, the car is full and<br>I<br>>
am feeling good about the purchase. I am sure that these will not
last<br>long<br>> there so took what I could use and only bought some of
the other plants<br>for<br>> my specialty pots around here.<br>><br>>
