Re: woes

Holli, that is sad.  That had to cast a pall over your holidays.  So far nothing has been stolen from my home thank goodness.

 I am really sorry, I dont know why people do the things they  do.
We have had things stolen, from our front yard.. and they they even climbed  
into our backyard, and stole useless stuff that made no sense at all.
Shame..  Dh when on strike last year and would not put one thing out  for 
Christmas!  He even spent many a night sitting in the backyard in the  dark 
Shame we have to live like this  ;(

I went  to the extension office to dig colchicum for our sale. I had
planted them 3  yrs ago in a sunny protected spot. This spring I noticed
large amounts of  leaves had been piled on them and I don't know how long
they were like  that. They'sd sprouted their big long leaves in the dark
of the stack and  when I pulled it off the white/yellow leaves didn't
have a very good time  of it. Also, the area had grown quite shady over
that time. I dug out 2.  They hadn't multiplied and were smaller than
when I'd planted them.  Meanwhile the buzzing wouldn't stop. I realized I
was in the middle of a  ehole bunch of bees. I decided they just weren't
worth it.

So I  went over to check the nursery, thought I'd deadhead some things.
Noticed  empty spaces. Just since I was there the evening before, someone
had taken  18 pots. These are plants I've potted, repotted, trimmed,
labeled, watered,  fertilized, and moved at least a dozen times since
April. What is wrong  with people that they will steal from a  Non-profit
