DH is very protective of his rocks! :lol: I suppose he has earned it (need smiley). It took 2 years for that iris to flower. You know you might be a bit nuts when you screech to a halt to rescue a plant is spotted in the road. Glad to know here, no one thinks I am nutS!!!!

ANd Smitty, you lend me your husband, I lend you mine....these plumbing issues are killing me :shock:

Hubby and I are off to Jasper in a few weeks. I told him we should take the car since it is better on gas, he informed me we had to take the truck so we could collect rocks for the pond! :lol: :lol:

Wow, Late is better than never.....some gorgeous Rs here. Love the Rocks Clyde...I have NO shortage of rocks, all I have to do is dig anywhere. :lol:

Here are my Rs...maybe not so interesting, a big NOID Rhodo, the oldest plant in my garden and the ONLY flowing shrub ( other than native shrubs) that was here when I moved in. It had NO flowers and had not flowered in a while I think. Now its huge and covered every year.....my Rolling Puddy... my little eegity black and white half manx cat named Manxine. AKA Pudd. And Rudies. Of which I have too many.

katherine,

Do you know the name of that spectacular rhodo???? It is an amazing colour! I might be looking at replacing one rhodo I lost last year (my own fault)

Thanks,
Remi
