Hetty, in my experience messages only come from posts within threads when @dutchlady1 is used. Not articles.
Not sure but what I think.

Ha! I spend a lot of time in my garden. It has taken much work thru many years to get it the way I want it to be. And I spend hours walking with my dog for exercise. Even in the winter.

If course then I have to come and post about my day here at ATP. Rolling on the floor laughing

You could take a tablet, or smart phone with you when you walk, and continue texting. Have to keep your first place status. Lots of competition.

Don't need it. I seem to be plenty chatty enough on my home desktop which is where I post.

Hilarious! Hetty.

Rita has posted beautiful images of roses, daylilies, and bulbs; and a lot of good, useful information on tomato growing in her garden, too. I tip my hat to you.
If you don't ask, the answer is always 'no.'

Why thank you Debra. I do very much enjoy my garden and I like to post pictures and talk about what's going on here in the garden. Lately (these past few years) I have really, really been into the vegetable gardening and very active in the Edibles Forums. My tomatoes have been really great!

I will second this. And she does threads of her roses, bulbs and veggie gardening with lovely photos and great information. She also does a run down of what tomato varieties she's tried each year & how they stacked up for her. Thumbs up
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.
