Thanks!

We had right around 7,000 members on January 1st of this year. So to be at 10K members really shows how much growth we've done in the first half of 2014!

Great podcast Dave and Trish - thank you!

We love Disney World too. Sister only lives 45 minutes from there so easy to visit when we are there.

Thanks for the tip on cutting back tomatoes. I'll try that but we may frost too early.

All our watering is done at daybreak.

Congratulations to Jon on hybridizing.

Still listening to the podcast and have made it to the crepe myrtles. I love my crepe myrtles, but am afraid I am going to lose one. Very few leaves. Maybe I'll just cut it back and see what happens.

I've lost a few crepe myrtles from time to time but they almost always come back from the roots.

Most of my other crepes have come back, some from the roots, but 'pocomoke' is very sparce and I don't see anything at the bottom. Going to let it go for now. I was very glad when my 'pink velour' and 'victor' came back. Those are two that I would hate to lose for sure.

Now I am off to listen to some more of the podcast and enjoy my grilled burger that my dh fixed. Yum!

Just finished listening to the podcast and I thoroughly enjoyed it! Nice ideas about color echoing, 60-30-10, theme gardens, and scale. I like the idea of the theme gardens. I have what I call my sitting garden and it has two small chairs and a table under the flowering cherry tree. Just the right size for my grandsons and they just beamed when they found it a few weeks ago. Have to admit though, I have a little wishing well under the flowering cherry tree also and got a little worried if the scale was right or wrong Smiling But that is what is so great about the podcast, it made me think!

Would definitely love to hear a podcast about how to photograph flowers!!!!!
