Do you mean Charleen, Rides Red Mule? If so, yes, she's on Facebook quite often, and she sent me the most beautiful handmade ornament for Christmas.

Hey!!! You all lose me???? It is always nice to be thought of. Thank you for asking.
should have posted more pictures here this last year. Next year will be better. We have been getting some wonderful much needed rain. My painted Lady is growing new leaves after the last ones froze. I have an extra in Greenhouse for back up but I'm hoping this one will come back from roots and do great.....
Thank you Polly for guiding me back home.
Love you all.....
hugs and love....

Mine are doing pretty good also, I have 4 int the sun room and 5 in the gararge under a light 8 hrs a day but no heat, they seem to be holding up pretty good.
We got 7 inches of snow yesterday and expecting more, I hope it stops now, that's enough.

Dearest Doris, the snow is so beautiful. You must be careful, as I know it can be quite dangerous. When I was a kid I was always falling, it seemed. the cold is so bad for my bones and joints...
but the beauty almost ( Rolling on the floor laughing ) makes it worth it. Hugs and much love, Dear friend...

Charleen...your Painted Lady sure is pretty!!

Doris....LOVE your snow pics. I grew up in Pa. and miss snow, but ONLY at Christmas. As a kid we (my family) used to go to the neighbors and friends caroling...was much more fun in the snow Whistling
Each cloud has a silver lineing if only you look for it.

I am so glad we don't have to worry about snow right now. Not that it would be impossible. But Spring has arrived and I have pulled the brugs out of the Green house and some are already in the ground and getting their leaves on... anyone else got anything going and growing.
Doris, how is your hand??? Are you getting better with each passing day????

sorry i have been delinquent....
but I have pictures of Brugs that I have just put into ground. These still have their pots...Thumb of 2013-04-16/Ridesredmule/b6d2bb
Thumb of 2013-04-16/Ridesredmule/962761I know about name tags disappearing, I have several like that too.
Aggravating. I notice one i had written her name on her so that was good. Want to plant some more tomorrow.
I hope my yellow one comes back, I had it in ground.
Monster is in ground now for 3 years and it comes back very good. Such a tough Monster. I love it. It is a white brug.
I have a Shredded white but it has yet to bloom. Maybe this year....
The ones in first picture have soil lifted up around pots, rocks to keep it in and then I added mulch to keep them cool and hopefully moist and happy....
