    Kind of ironic that the southern and east coast states are suffering from an unusally hard winter, yet areas here in the north have had a really mild winter. The winter weather in my area has been downright wimpy. (I heard Vancouver, Canada had to actually make or bring snow in for some of the winter events!)

    I heard that too! Lol, they should have just moved the events south a little. Parts of the US could have hosted with lots of snow >.>

    I went to a wedding yesterday, and the mother of the bride lost 29 of her 30 orchids, because she didn't bring them inside. I have half of mine in a TV room, the rest are in a heated greenhouse, (again)....

    Wouldn't you know you'd have such a cold winter...it's prob.my fault...I took several divisions of catts down to my lot in Venice, in mid Jan., and put them in the trees...in hopes they would grow wild...I won't know till next Jan., but I'll lay odds I won't find them again.
