Also, here's the foundation for my little pop-up greenhouse. Yes...it's pretty temporary and slopes a little towards a French drain. I wanted to frame it up, but am worried about putting wood in the ground now...termites!

It is pretty - and has lots of blooms coming up. Exciting about the greenhouse; one major piece! Alana

Duh...blonde moment, was reading the tag from the pot next to it! It IS Bellisimo!! DUH!

It's a sago I started from a seed...and I still need to level some wobbly pavers (and clean out the pile of "stuff" by the fence!)...but the greenhouse is supposed to pop-up like a tent. We'll see. Best Pal in California said the chore will be getting it back into the bag!

I just love the Hadeco bulbs... Bellisimo es muy bonita!

Awesome foundation! I wonder if it could be framed with a composite material instead of wood? There must be alternatives...

Can't wait to see your greenhouse... and what you put in it!

Kristi, I just re-potted some of the bulblets I grew from your seeds... and, wow! The bulbs under the soil were like large walnuts! I didn't expect them to be so big! They've been growing in the basement under lights since they were germinated!

I am so out of space that I potted them into a hanging basket and hung them up in front of the window! Talk about crowded! :-)

Jodi...I have a fiberglass strip that I might put in. Don't want to put anything down that can harbor the termits, just had the house treated a couple of weeks ago.

Yup...recall that some of those seeds were just huge. Glad they are doing well for you. I just threw a few in water a couple of weeks ago and the President Johnson crosses have sprouted. They are hardy!!

Up here, Kristi, it's carpenter ants... apparently, they can cause a lot of structural damage if left unchecked. And then, you have your mice, etc... we probably have termites, too. I'm not sure.

Was up all night delivering pups... Maia's got a total of 8! Whew! I'm tired! I can only imagine how she feels!

The bloom IS Bellisimo...I was looking at its neighbor's tag (Trentino that IS blooming now and looks just as it should). AS I SAID>>>>it was a blonde moment!!

Novel is up to 33,000+ words!! WHOO HOO...nearly 2/3 to goal!

Hi Kristi, How about pressure treated wood for your new greenhouse structure. works well here in okc. You will be wishing for more space in no time flat. I am. So easy to fill those casa verde's up in a flash. sonador
