Re: Houseplants

Ceres: I tried that one year, thinking since we spend so much time on
our deck at our above ground pool, they would get all the attention they
needed...nope, fried the poor things...too much sun around our place and
barely any shady areas except way out in the back of the yard. I suppose
when we eventually build the addition we want to on the back of our
house (where the pool currently sits), I must remember to add a deep
overhang where I can put houseplants out for the summer without frying
