Re: weather


I seem to recall, that in the days before rooting hormone powder, people used "willow water" i.e. water in which willow branches had been soaked, as a rooting stimulant.

Fran, you could probably find a puusywillow, Syringa vulgaris (or
several other species) locally this spring. If not, I found several
available at Mellinger's:

Where could I find one? I really don't remember seeing them in any catalogs I
get.


Fran, OKC

What about a pussy willow- they love wet feet! And they are so much fun in

Yup. After a 5 year fight to get the front street footage cleared of rock
debris and ruts and get it graded to actually drain to a catch basin was
enough of a monumental fight. When I approached them about the yard
boundary problem, they told me to take it up with my neighbors for not
clearing the trees away from the edges of the property. UGH! (Keep in
mind; these were the same folks that sank a catch basin 4" higher than the
surrounding area. They can't even figure out that water drains down hill
around here. They put the sewers too close to the surface of the ground and
forgot how much soil they removed--before the installation--once it was
installed to bring it to the proper height. Of course they deny it, but
there are pictures....) They already know I'm a trouble maker.


I think I'll be better off just waiting until we can afford to do something
with the area or find plants (like cattails) that will thrive in the "river"
in the wet times and go dormant in the dry seasons. I still like the idea
of a little bridge across the boundary, though, and a dry river bed. There
is still so much more to check out!

That is true Kitty- but proving, getting someone to actually do
something... around here, not worth the time and effort. Easier to just
fix it yourself.

Bonnie,
You need to get out there and scream at the County/Township. They
can't
"fix" the grade resulting in a detriment to your property. We had a
similar
situation at my office. We're on a deadend street; commercial one
side,
residential other side. Commercial side has a sort of dip carved
between
two properties so water runs south to the ravine behind our buildings.
The
residence property across the street always flooded, even though there
was
a
pipe running under the street from their side to ours. So we fixed
the
problem by extending our 'dip' to their pipe to accept the water
rather
than
cause backflow.

This worked great for a few years, until those people died, then new
people
trenched the property AND another neighbor's to lead massive amounts
of
water through to our side, where, the dip wasn't adequate, so they
flooded
us. Finally the city came in, rebuilt the section of street and put
in a
real live drain. Whether it is a private individual, a business, or a
govt
directive, one entity cannot make such physical changes that adversely
impact the existing condition of another entity and not be called to
account
for their actions.

I've talked it over with our neighbor and they are all for it, but
we'd
share costs. With our job situation and their job situation, there
just
aren't any funds right now. If we are blessed in the future, you
can
bet
that is one of the first things we do! We even thought of putting a
small
bridge over the area so we can still visit in spring and fall
without
sinking knee deep in mud or water. We've had it re-graded three
times
on
our dime already to "fix" the problem with absolutely no success.
If
the
road bed were not raised above our property level (which used to be
below
our grade,) the water would simply run off across the street and
into
the
little creek behind the houses across the street. The township
decided
to
"fix" the grade when they put in sewers. UGH! Of such is life.

Blessings,
Bonnie (SW OH - zone 5)

I recall a lovely "dry stream" bed featured in a gardening magazine
(I'll
look it up if you're interested) to take care of flash flooding
between
two
property lines.

I guess that means more rain is on its way here, huh, Donna?
We've
got
flood warnings and our gutters haven't been able to keep up with
the
deluge.
There is a small "river" between property lines, the low areas are
overflowing and even the walkway to the porch has 1/2 thick water
pouring
over it. We haven't gotten to the point of a rain like the 100
years
flood
levels for the area, but it can't be too far off with the ground
already
at
saturation. And we will be in the Mid 60's today! UGH!!! It
should
be
colder tomorrow, but not freezing until Monday. We'll see.

I'm not sure what water saturated earth will do to the dormant
plants
and
those that have broken dormancy because of this warm spell.
Anybody
out
there know?

Blessings,
Bonnie (SW OH - zone 5)

You take care of your self Judy.. the flu that is around here is a
.....

Currently raining here... a tad earlier it was pouring and I kept thinking it is gonna start thundering in a minute... glad it was
rain
and not snow... or I would be shoveling instead of typing...

Donna

Happy New Year!
It snowed Monday & Tuesday & didn't all melt. Snowing again
today so
we
may
be having our 2 weeks with snow now. Winter blooming heathers
were
in
bloom
the week before Christmas, so I will look for them again as soon
as
the
white stuff melts. I've had a lovely week off. Supposed to work
today,
but
have called in sick. Icky flu or some such. So, I'm taking it
easy,
watching the parade on HGTV. Also feeling guilty that someone
else
has
to
work for me. Stay healthy.
Judy B
