That's fine, I suddenly have taken a liking to the pink ones. Lovey dubby Don't know where I would put one but I will keep it in mind just the same. Was it hardy or tropical. As a matter of fact it does remind me of the hardy one called 'Lady Baltimore.'

Yes, it's hardy. It has been in my yard for about 4 years now.

I have another pink one that I've had for 20 or 25 years. I can't find a good shot but this will give you an idea. It's much bigger. Where the moscheutos is only maybe 2' tall, this one is 4' or 5' tall.

Ok, that sounds more like the 'Lady Baltimore' I have 'Lord Baltimore' and it is also large. Lovey dubby Mine are red.

Those old pictures, of course, pre-dated digital cameras. Most of our photos from that time were baby pictures of our son and photos of the dog! I realized we really didn't have many pictures of the yard back then.

Your parcel of Cincinnati is deserving of a garden of the year designation.
Nothing that's been done can ever be changed.
