RE: last night's experience;Grandma's & Seibenthalers; and Rayna's new house...

Good for her, Bonnie!  I know she must be very excited and anxious to
really make this home 'hers'.   I like her choice of gray - I used gray
in my home, too.  Depending on the tone used, light came do wonderful
things to the color - changing its' hue and intensity and bringing out
subtle undercurrents of blue or palest rose or purple.   

And, of course, with your help I'd bet the yard will be a showcase in no

Let me know if I can help, Wendy!  BTW, we still need to get together so
I can give you a tub full of Knautia Macedonica (if you want it) and get
you over here to see if there is anything else you could use.  

I'm 1400 e-mails behind.  Catching up will be slow.

BTW, to the group in general, daughter Rayna moved into her first house
(bought on her own without anyone's help) and is excited!  There are a
few plants already there.  In the dark, I was only able to identify
surprise lilies.  She wants some help on plantings.  Hopefully next
weekend I can get pictures (in the daytime) to post and get some ideas.
The outside of the house is VERY plain.  It needs something to spice it
up!  It begs for "curb appeal."

But the house is structurally very sound, the yard is adequate for a
single woman with 2 dogs and she's looking into reel type mowers for it!
(Maybe all those conversations I've had with her about working with the
ecology when she was little really did sink in!  She's even started
using a recycle
bin!)  It has a basement area for her dark room, an extra room she can
use to set up her photography, interesting interior architecture, among
other things.  For a starter home, it's got great potential.  Rayna is
very artistic and is already planning to have a "grey" living
room--walls, carpet, furniture, lamps, etc. with the only color in the
room to be her photographs and artistically covered pillows.  Grey
shades sound pretty cold, but if I know her, it will turn out FABULOUS!

Wow!  This must have been a great evening!  Can't say that any of my
plant sources have ever pampered me like that, but I wish they would!

Hmm. . . I wonder if Siebenthaler's and Grandma's Gardens (the two
plushiest local nurseries) have websites.  I could copy them on this
e-mail. . . .

Pondering & Scheming,
