Heavenly sent bumble bees and others on my squash flowers
It was GREAT to see some new faces this last meeting and some that had not been there in a while. (I try not to say "old" faces) We got a few things answered from the internet and the group has grown again to a size that I need to bring the projector.

Celebration Assisted Living is our host, 6:00-6:30 is our "drift-in" time. No dress code, no age minimum or limit, just come to talk or listen about gardening.

If you are going to be able to come and I have promised you certain plants or cuttings, let me know. It is not fun bringing them back home, so I like it to be a one-way flow. Of course, feel free to share them with your friends later.

I promised some African violet cuttings but I think it is better that I keep them until they start new sprouts, This takes a few weeks so, "ohmmmmm" patience grasshopper.

The Aloe is tough, so cuttings can survive. Mother-in-law's tongue (Sansevieria) or Snake Plant is also tough so divisions should not be a problem. I have the airplane plant 9Chlorophytum comosum) also know as spider plant as well, but you need to confirm you presence so I don't bring them in vain.

BY the way, the extra plug for our club in the paper was not missed and certainly appreciated. Thanks T-G.

Steve, as it stands I plan to be there. Where is the Celebration Assisted Living? Is that the facility close to Food Lion?

895 Union Street

Shelbyville, TN 37160

(931) 536-1577

Just a block or so North of the old hospital, on the left as you are going out of town.

Go all the way to the end. The community room is straight back. The folks know why new people are coming in and they are extremely friendly. Just great!

OK folks. Right now I am only bringing one of each plant for those who have told me they are coming through here or by private e-mail. If you don't tell me, there won't be any of mine left over unless someone does not show.

My African violets still have away to go before rooting so the will not be there.
