Speaking of which, does anyone know (and I'm sure
someone does) are the
botanical gardens or arboretums in Chicago or St
Louis something you can
visit in the winter, or is it strictly a summer
thing? I am DYING to go
to a real arboretum.

Who can make it to one of those? Or another? any
suggestions? I can only ride so far still, but I
definitely need a winter trip!

Jesse, how far am I from you?

As Karen (stitch) mentioned, we are becoming a clump
here, so maybe we
should plan a tour....it would be a long day, but we
could visit my garden,
Vera's, Andrea's, Karen's, Kathy's and Chris's. Day
two could be Cathy and
Ceres.. who else is close there?

Maybe we should plan a progressive dinner tour?
Breakfast at my place, lunch
at Vera's and dinner at Chris's?

Ok- forget it, I was just dreaming.... need more
sleep! :)

I am always up for a road trip. I just need time
to get the animals taken
care of. It would really be great if we could all
meet somewhere. Donna,
I'm sure your DH would just love to be inundated
by us. :-)

O.K., since my life seems very chaotic at the
moment and I don' t have
time to do the planning....if somebody will plan
this wonderful get
together....I WILL BE THERE! Just to meet
everybody face to face would
be so AWESOME.

Pam, I always have Russian Sage, too, so if
that doesn't come back, I
get you some from here. Also, I'm sure I'll
have some daylilies. If
can tell me how to start some caryopteris for
you, I'd be glad to do
for you too. (Weigela is not something I have,
unfortunately, nor any
Pineapple sage or Wild Thing salvia.)

Let me know how to help and I'll get it out to
Bonnie (SW OH - zone 5)

Yes, quite few. Pineapple sage croaked, the
caryopteris (four of
them) also, even the Russian sage which likes
dry conditions, I think
three of those are toast too. Even my big Wild

too good. My weigela is a goner, going to

roses. I think they will be OK, but only March
will tell. Most of the
mints and purple coneflowers are history too.
Some daylilies have
disappeared, but they may be hunkering down,
at least I hope so. All
planting next Spring are rosemary, lavender,
thyme and salvias. And I
replace the purple coneflowers. They're a must
