Scarlet Rose Mallow and One Dark NightScarlet Rose Mallow and One Dark Night
By Sharon, September 1, 2015

It started like this: She leaned over with her hand cupped around her mouth, and with her soft low voice against my ear, she whispered: "Wear yore darkest clothes, chile, an' meet me right here jus' 'fore dark.

By dave, August 27, 2015

What is the absolute easiest edible plant you can grow? I spent my entire morning contemplating that question, and nothing came to mind that beats garlic.

By jmorth on Sep 2, 2015 1:37 PM, concerning plant: Double Daffodil (Narcissus 'Rip van Winkle')

Rip van Winkle - (4 Y-Y) (pumilis plenus) division 4, double; variable, old fashioned yellow flower that resembles a dandelion; a 'ragamuffin', to quote our friend, Phyllis, that looks like it's having a 'bad hair day', but is endearing to all who see it; all yellow with green segments interspersed; Heirloom; 1884; 5"-8"; early-midseason; no longer on the Approved Miniature List, but would get lost amoung the other Division 4 doubles.
