RE: Laundry list

Being toasty warm and being toasted are two totally different things.  By
all  means, find something that will do some sun filtration.  What will you
do with the hibiscus?  Can it be rehabilitated or "youthened?"

Outside of leaving pine cones on some of the pines, we can't get by that
easy for a Christmas tree.  We did use a bald cypress one year to decorate,
but I wouldn't recommend it every year.

Subject: [CHAT] Laundry list

We got most things done before the rain started today.

The only hold-overs of any consequence are two golden barrel cactuses 
that need to have their pot size jumped [something I find easy to put 
off] and a 15-gallon kumquat that needs a permanent home in the ground.

The kumquat has been our Christmas tree for the last 3 years [it's 
loaded with bright orange fruit at that time of year, so it 
self-decorating], but it's beginning to outgrow its pot and I'm getting 
too old to wrestle a 30-gallon pot in and out of the house.

I'm sure that by next weekend, the list will be longer. We still have 
to rip out an aging hibiscus and then find something else to block the 
evening sun from the sunroom.

I know, I know--if it's a sunroom, why block the sun? Because summer is 
coming and if we don't block the sun, it will be a life-size toaster
