Mandevillia have really evolved the last 5 years. The third picture is if the old standard Alice DuPont. Barr none the most aggressive climber in the family.

Yes only a tropical and needs brought in if you want to save it. But the hundreds of blooms in a sunny location definitely give you a great return on investment.…See More

Is there anyplace in the Miami Valley that sells ladybugs?

Fred, most appreciated. I have never uploaded a photo until today, but I still don't know how to navigate the system to be more intelligent in posting. Couldn't find a way to ask a question with the uploading of photos.I have only one of these plants; had a few in the past, but I removed them: however, I see no harm in letting these go to maturity and seeds, unless they are real propagators. Thanks, again.

Hi Fred:) I am still discovering where all the stuff is on here, and when you write something, where it ends up(!). My mind keeps thinking it's like FACEbook. I keep looking for the "like" button. It took me awhile to figure out Fb too. Thought I had all that abstract down and then came this.... I need a chilton manual, I guess. Anyhow.... I just wanted to add to the pallet with a little here and there about Butterflies. thank you for letting me spout:) please let me know if i am putting something in the wrong place, ok? Laurel

Thanks Fred, I've been locked in at the refinery. Working and sleeping there, trying to keep the place running while the company and the union work out a new contract. I spent 8 days locked in and couldn't come home to see my family. Now im working 12 hours a day 7 days a week, and get to come home in the mornings. So i really needed a beer or 3 on saturday.

Hi Fred,

I would be delighted to turn something for Mark. I really do not think a garden dibble is adequate. I want it to be much better than that. Minimally, a really really nice bowl or something. Thanks for writing to the gentleman...if you hear back let me know. And you can give him my contact info too. We need to know what kind of wood is available, what kind of diameter we can get etc etc... and the quicker a "chunk" is treated, the better it will be. Either of you can contact me for some ideas as well as tips on how to preserve some chunks so they don't crack before I can get to them... Also, Fred, bear in mind, a piece very green will have to be twice turned... I can tell you all about that...it is not "instant. Take good care - you have a kind heart. Denise
