Does this mean snow???

Postby Big Smile » Sep 07, 2012 11:22 am

These Colchicum have been blooming since Aug.28th ,,,,,,,,,,,,way too early.
AS the saying goes,,,6 weeks later we get snow :-( Oh well , I guess we can handle a few flurries but then it will be nice again until mid-Nov. according to the weather forecast.

Wash your mouth out with grandma's lye soap using language like that ! No mention of that white crap for at least another couple of months should be tolerated !

Beautiful flowers though .

I think the "snow tale" is just meant for Ontario not BC. So Dave, you should be safe! LOL

Wow! Those are pretty!! :)

Are they as dangerous to work with as their reputation?

They are actually nice to work with, I have used them in flower arrangements

Didn't know these are poisonous but a lot of garden plants are poisonous.

It is only allowed here on Christmas Eve, and it must go Boxing Day....... and that is a long way off even if the damn commercials and store displays have started already.
