Does that mean the group is a private/closed group and you do not want others to join?

Not at all...I think K2 just means she would like our Buckeye title back so that the others that were posting in the old thread can find it easier...

KC: Thanks for the heads up on the thread.
I'll leave that up to somebody from OHIO to do!

And about running up the count....now you sound like some others else I use to know!!
Only they count up to the next 100 or even number and call that chatting!! Too funny.

Later.......I need to get outside and spread some peat moss on some of my plants to try and hold the moisture around them. Suppose to be into the 90's this weekend.

Kc, yes they are my knock out roses. I deadheaded them a lot and think I over did it, they are very slow coming back. I don't think I'm supposed to dead head knock outs. I have a couplle more different knock outs and some bush roses.

I HATE change!

But thanks to you guys, I found this new "location".

Looks like many of you have already figured it out.

Computer savy? I've got a hard time working a toaster.

We're not THAT hard to find...after all there IS a link, and hopefully other Ohio cruisers (and Buckeyes at heart) will also find us, like Deneses96 did. Hope we didn't scare you away Denese96...we're really actually a very friendly group, and not snobby at all!

Mike - I have three of those knockout rose bushes. They require a lot of deadheading if you want to keep them blooming. I deadhead weekly and sometimes it takes me a little while. But when they are in full bloom, they really are eye catching. I just wish the blooms would last a little longer and actually have a rose-y scent.

We have been having a neighborhood garage sale for the past two days, and we'll be open for business tomorrow, too. For all the work I put into gathering items to sell, pricing them, getting display tables and setting things out, getting change from the bank, writing ads, and then sitting there waiting for/on customers...I've made less than $50 so far. It's hardly worth the effort, and I won't be doing it again for a few years (at least). Can you tell I'm getting tired and cranky?

Sics, most things I have read about knock outs are they are self cleaning. I never dead headed them before and had a lot of continual blooms. I may cut them back or shape them in the spring .

How to Care for a Knock Out® Rose

The lady that very patiently taught me how to swing dance broke her leg and Fay and I visited her tonight at a rehab center, then went to Pattie's for a short visit.

Yesterday I cut the lawn, trimmed and edged, then cleaned all of the tools. That is the first time in a long time that I did all of that in one day. I watered this AM, things are starting to get dry. I may have to water at Pattie's early next week.

Have a good week end.

Take a break today, Mike. I'm tired just from reading all you accomplished. Sorry to hear about your friends leg.

Sics; Sometimes you can make a killing at garage sales. Other times you just need to have a book to read.

KC &K2; We Buckeyes may just have to "outsource" getting the old title back to Florida or Michigan.

Dave. the most activity I'm doing today is eating supper.
Would it be possible and permitable to open up a new Buckeye thread in Floataway?
I didn't surf the other threads in floataway but always looked at them.
I'm off to do some heavy loafing.
