Subject: Re: [CHAT] Re: Four O'Clocks, wedding..

Well, in my zone the four o'clocks get bigger and bigger "tubers"
as<br>they mature. I have some that are as big as a sweet potato....and
they<br>get BIG, but are slower to bloom.<br><br> <br>As for the
wedding....you have to know that (A) I come from a very<br>dysfunctional
family, (B) my husband's two ex's are dysfunctional and<br>way "out
there", (c) my stepdaughter and her new husband are from
"that<br>generation" as my husband puts it...so half of the wedding
guests were<br>rather conservative...and "that generation" made up the
other<br>half...(facial piercing, tattoos all over, dressed rather
oddly...and<br>when you walked out back of the reception hall...the
smell of pot was<br>THICK let me tell ya). I had to make my sister go
home because she had<br>too much to drink (act surprised) and was
hitting on my brother-in-law<br>(who is very married). The mother of the
bride (husband's first ex) had<br>not eaten all day, took a Valium
before the wedding and proceeded to get<br>totally trashed at the
reception (not a pretty sight) and the second ex,<br>who really had no
business being there but she invited herself, was<br>hovering around
trying to mingle and most of them wanted nothing to do<br>with
her.<br><br> BUT...the ceremony itself was nice. (deep breath)
So...that's one child down and five more to go. I hope the others wait
awhile.<br><br>Kitty <kmrsy@comcast.net> wrote:<br>Well, I have seen
some JB holes on a few of the leaves, but I don't see any<br>carcasses.
They are only just now beginning to bloom, so maybe their lure<br>will
be stronger as the season progresses.<br><br>Re> That was a LOT of work,
let me tell ya<br>Yes, please do!<br><br>Kitty<br><br>----- Original
