I'd be willing to dig some up and plant some in it's place but can you tell me some of what you have? The duranta is beautiful!

There are 4 or 5 different rose bushes in the back and about then out front. Because I am still on breathing nebulizer treatments, my brain is fuzzy, so I will try to find names.
I will also post more pictures.

So sorry to hear your health has deteriorated that much. I know it must be very difficult for you to endure. I wish I lived closer and could help.

I am so sorry to hear this! Jim and I will be up for the plant swap and will come by and dig whatever is left and put in grass for you. We`re coming up on Thursday so I can pick up the grass on Friday, we`ll know how much we need at that point.
I love iris and am putting in more after my recent successes with them.

The first weekend in April I think.
Let me know if I can bring you anything from the island. I`ll call the nursery and find out about pallet costs.

Tally HO!

Talley! You are an Angel. Y'all can have anything you want. Many of the iris are cemetery whites from my oldest ancestral grave in Cistern, TX. Others are ones I have bought over the years. I know there are several reblooming, or at least are supposed to be. I will email you my phone #.

K-do you have a number for the nursery? I want to call and make sure they have some grass in stock before we dig up the yard. If not I am off a couple of weeks next month and will come up for a couple of days and get your yard done for you.

Oh, Tally you are so sweet. But I do not want you to do a lot. Just come and see if there are any plants you want. If the plants are out of the we can slowly add pieces of grass our selves.

I can probably swing by after the swap and dig for you. Do you have the grass ready to go? If not, maybe I can come by when Tally is there to help. Please email me: lorelei@gvtc.com
