Kitty, I have thyme but not this one.  Must be special.
    David, I am so sorry for your daughter.  She certainly has had a lot to 
deal with and as parents it is so difficult to see your child suffering and 
unable to kiss it and make it better.  Your family will be in my prayers.
    Dakota, welcome.  Hope you will find a home here.
    Melody, haven't heard if you are going to attend the Ia St Fair (rated 
the 2nd best event to attend in our country, can you believe it?).
    Mardi, we had a delight bus trip to Dubuque Arboretum last Sat.  Was a 
bit disappointed in Culvers.  I wrote them 2 times, called once and stopped on 
Memorial weekend to confirm our stop.  We were right on time and the mgr was 
not there as she said she would  not but said she would assign someone to talk 
to us.  No one knew anything about our visit.  Not a big deal but when the Ball 
Seed Field Trip bus stopped there last year, the same thing happened.  Have 
you been to Dennis Hermsons gardens in Farley?  His gardens were wonderful!  He 
is a great talker on conifers and unusual trees such as Japanese & Asian 
maples, beeches and ginkgos He has a business (on the farm) in addition where he 
sells the plants he has in his gardens.  He is just a short distance into the 
country on a gravel which will be paved this summer.  He is expanding his 
business and display areas. I purchased one dwarf conifer so now have 3 new ones to 
plant.  Gary Whittenbaughs garden in Oelwein was amazing.  This is another 
garden you need to visit if you have not.  He welcomes visitors anytime.  I 
think we had a bus load of new conifer lovers on the return trip.  Weather was 
great for us but we rcd a storm at home.
    We just cptd a 6' + wooden obelisk and placed it in the garden this 
afternoon.  It is a 4 sided teepee shape with finial on top and lathe pieced 
in-between the corners.  I daringly painted it cobalt blue to go with the many blue 
pots, chairs, etc.  I was afraid it would be to much but I like it.
    Ceres, Iowa zone 4/5
