Re: Re: WAS Royal Paulownia NOW tree topping


I'm trying...believe it. My grandangel is down there...and I seriously am ready to be a full time Nana! And the weather is more to my liking. (I know...I never thought I'd say that...but once you get the hang of "gardening in hell"...it's not so bad). But I will miss my peonies and other things that don't do well down there.
