Re: OT: ridicule & labels

From: "R. Dennis Hager" <rdhager@dmv.com>

I tend to label EVERY plant in the garden that lasts more than one
season. I use copper tags on shrubs and trees, EON rose markers with
P-Touch tags elsewhere. I have sensed that some visitors think it a bit
peculiar and a few have even made comment. My response is that tours
here are self-guided. If no label is found, then identiy of any plant is
in question, because the gardener's memory just cannot be trusted and he
doesn't have time to rummage through the garden journal, which is not
quite organized.
