  1. Random Queen Anne’s Lace story – apparently, there is a deadly lookalike to it. Had no idea until earlier this year. It seems child Sarah could have died many times had she decided to eat some of the hemlock (then again, I know Queen Anne’s Lace so well, I highly doubt that would have happened – though after I learned of hemlock, I realized there was a reason I once had a teacher who told us to look for the dark dot in the middle of the flowers before we started chowing down. At the time, I just thought it was dumb because why would I check something like that when I knew full well what flower I had?).

  2. Echinacea or purple cone flower is one plant that I love but last year I didn’t plant it in a good place/space. It died out and then I never got to the nurseries when it was available this year. I’ve seen it in some yards and it was beautiful in large clumps. I like daylilies too but again I did not plant them in a good spot. They grow but don’t bloom so I hope that I can get them moved in the late fall or winter but maybe that should be early spring. I need to look that up. 🙂

    • I love the echinacea I’ve got (off course the name alludes me now.. Art’s Pride, I think) it’s a true to seed mix of colors. I’ll have a good pix soon.
      As for the daylillies, many times they don’t flower if they need to be divided. Give or take every 3-5 years. I do it in early spring (but fall is good, also) with a pitch folk. Jab in and rock the fork to loosen them. They are pretty resilient.
