Re: Plumeria and stuff

Ok Melody- thanks for confirming that I'm not losing my marbles- I was rather confused by the diet issue too!

She's MUCH more strict than I'll ever be. She freaks out if "fat"

if she wants to <br>remain healthy. She's been eating chicken and salad
for days. ;-)<br>A<br>----- Original Message ----- <br>From: "Pam Evans"

for the shade garden. I've got all kinds of things waiting for<br>>>
that<br>>> spot to get cleaned out. I got some cuttings of a beautiful
peach colored<br>>> impatien from a friend. It has a very different
shaped flower, almost <br>>> like<br>>> a<br>>> triangle. She takes
cuttings every fall and has kept them going in her<br>>> yard<br>>> for
three years that way as no one has sold them since she bought
them.<br>>> Mine<br>>> are doing well so I'm excited. Several begonia

of my favs), a Clerodendrum<br>>> ugandense, Clerodendrum bungei
(keeping THAT one in a pot), Salvia<br>>> 'belize'<br>>> which is
supposed to do well in shade, and a rootbeer plant (Latin <br>>>
escapes<br>>> me<br>>> at the moment)

that is just too neat. I'm excited about this new garden.<br>>>
Right<br>>> now there is still a pile of bricks, old fence posts with
the concrete<br>>> still<br>>> on them, and some type of metal grill or

Beach) today so I'll be following a strict new lifestyle. I'm glad I
know<br>>> what's going on, as I've been having trouble with my eyes,
tired, <br>>>

thirsty,<br>>> hungry, etc for EVER it seems. What's bizarre is my
mother found out two<br>>> weeks<br>>> before I did that she has it as
well.<br>>><br>>> So, there's my most recent update. I hope everyone is
