    Gardening? It may be a stretch of the imagination with most of the garden looking like #1 & 2, but today was just too nice to be indoors so I untied the Juniper Moonglow and put its twinkly stars away. Then I moved the Juniper squamata off the...

    I am not sure how I managed to overlook flower buds on the Hoya yesterday but I did. There are 3 sets of flower buds in different stages of development. I think that the weather station for Folia must be halfway up a mountain, it has a reading of ...
