Re: Time change
gardenchat@hort.net

Ack. That means ME. I like change. I love the changing seasons: the
first hints of autumn color with cooler nights; the first dusting of
snow; daffodils peeking out, willows beginning to leaf; mature greens in
the trees; and, all the plants and flowers that grow and flower in
different seasons. Guess I am an odd duck.

I'm with you, Pam. Not only can't stand the winters, but get impatient 
with those who say they enjoy the changing seasons. Lord love a duck.
