Well the sun is out early today so I am thinking I might move my Brugs to the gararge, one step closer to outside Big Grin I know it is colder than my plant room but it never gets below 55
I have so many seeds and starts of Desert Rose I am running out of space, don't ask me what I will do with all of them, it was just a challenge, and something different, and I just love how they look.

Here is a link, Wilfred to like to get more people over to his Desert Rose cubit.
I know this is unusal but what else is new?? Huh? Wilfred is a nice guy and VERY knowledgeable about the Desert Rose.

We will all be planting our Brugs out before too long and I can't hardly wait. Spring is such an exciting time of new plants and new photos.

This is my Noid I cut and brought in last fall. Isn't she beautiful?

Lol,
I don't normally look for blooms till mid summer but had taken about 6 of my plants into garage to try and save the seed pods, so weather warmed up and lol and behold have 2 blooms on my everlasting I grew from seeds, Was thinking it was white but it is almost gold looking . Think one of them is white guess left that one outside , don't have a camera at the time but was thinking they must have been forming when put in for the winter but such a nice surprise. I was speechless cause had been real sick and they really made my day. Now I am wondering if need to cut the seed pods off that have survived the winter so the blooms continue . I am worried to death cause Ella had sent me a pink perfection thats doule first one I have ever seen and I really should have put her in the garage , just hope I see some eprouts coming up soon. If she comes back she going in the garage this winter..
Have a great Brug day to all!!

That is o.k., I know I sent some out and they were mush when they got there. I felt sick to know I had done that, but I replaced them. I forget to use confirmation also and then the p.o. wonders why it is losing business. I bet they are held over somewhere.....

It may cost a bit more, but I use priority mail when I send plants or cuttings out. They have a better chance of making it if they get there sooner.

As bad as the post office is with regular mail, UPS and FedEx can be worse. Of course, it may be because of where I live. There is a large shade tree by the front gate, but most of the time, the packages are tossed over the gate and left in full sun.

Can't you build them a little shelf to put them on? they shouldn't do that. They used to put them in mty DH truck, can you imagine?? Sometimes it's weeks before I look in there.

I find that Flate Rate boxes that you get free from the post office is not expensive send, and they get there in two to three days, and has a tracking number, they have three different sizes, small runs $4.95, Medium is $8.50 and Large is $12.95 that is from Indiana to most places.

I use the triangular boxes because I usually send rather long cuttings.

Charleen, Cows are curious animals. Chances are they would knock the boxes off a shelf, but the main reason is that they don't normally come onto the property. Often times, the packages are literally thrown over the gate. I know this because the boxes land up against the gate even when the box is marked fragile. I once ordered a glass mortar and pestle — millions and millions of glass shards. Second reason — poisonous snakes — water moccasins, copperheads and rattlers, but mostly water moccasins.

I've been trying to synchronize calf births for a number of years. Got close this past summer/fall and had about 25 little ones at once. Didn't realize they would form destructive little gangs. The smaller ones would just duck under the hot wire and over the ground wire to get to my garden. The older ones would entangle both wires together, shorting the fence out. Eventually they tore the fence down. Had to put up a much sturdier fence, but not before they had done considerable damage. One bull calf spent a few days at the vet's because he ate lantana leaves. Later I had to keep a close eye on a small group for several days because they ate all my crinium lilies.

Although Fayette County is mostly cattle country, donkeys are very popular around here as watch donkeys. They are definitely needed when raising sheep and goats, but not really needed for cattle. Coyotes are present in large numbers because of all the deer and rabbits. Our immediate neighbor has a very friendly jenny who comes to the gate whenever she is in an adjoining pasture. I've had to discourage her because the neighbor is not always up to date on his animal's inoculations.

Well I am lucky, my mailman brings mine up to the door, if I am nmot home he puts it between the screen and the main door.

Now I have your attention Big Grin I have a question, if brugs are left too long in the sun, I know the leaves get burned, will it kill the plant or just lose the leaves, I had an family emergency and had to leave mine out longer than I intended for the first time.

Kareoke,
Not sure but do know if they aren't used to sun it will mess with the leaves till they get used to it and then should put on new growth. With the weather being so up and down my plants have been losing and once adjusting sending out the new, as long as roots are strong they should be fine.

It does take a while to transition any plant from indoors to direct sunlight. The cell wall have to thicken and that takes time. The leaves and possibly some of the more tender new growth will scorch, but the plant should recover.
