Hey, LTC, what up!!!???? I SOOOOO thought of you and this morning meant to dm you AGAIN and say, hey, there is always Stacy's yet to do. Then, a little bit ago I thought "I should call D! I should call A. See if someone wants to go to Stacy's" then I spent so much time on CD, hours have passed since and I figured was too little notice.

LTC, I figured you would be off on one of your Sunday family adventures !!!! Here you were lurking around watching us talk about flowers and stuff!!!

No need to apologize, J. I didn't mean to seem like a meanie, either. I was using the q-marks so the Southern Almanac (Ani) might enlighten, you know, cause she keeps a copy of the official rules at her house - tee hee hee.

Thanks for the book suggestion! I'll look for it at the library. Oh, and I LOVE lilacs, too! When I was a teacher, my students used to bring me lilacs at the end of the year when they bloomed in Wisconsin (early June).

well, I am glad you spent to much time on CD (for completely selfish reasons of course )...and actually I hadn't been on CD to long when I wrote that to you...we just got back from the lake

Oh...and to get back to the topic.....I love wisteria!!!

I had a friend of mine put an arbor structure over there hot tub and grew wisteria on top of it. Of course the spring time the flowers are phenomenal but it help to provide shade during the summer. (here a photo I pulled off net Im not sure what plant they used http://www.verticalgardeningtips.com...ig_pic/p3b.jpg) The downside is you have to make sure you put on hot tub cover to keep out the leaves)

I don't keep a copy - I wrote them. ROFL!!!! Silly girl. I just pass down what all those Southern women beat in my head. Remember in Steel Magnolias - Weezer says something to the effect of - "I don't know why I do this stuff. I am a old Southern woman and this is just what old Southern women do." LOL.

Well, this thread has now convinced me of two things. Gonna get the wisteria for the arbor . . . and gonna get a lilac for the garden at the front of the house - near the street.

You all really inspired me today!

I'm thinking the same about lilacs in our yard. This is our first spring in our house, so I'm still waiting to see what some things are as they bloom. So far, no lilacs that I can see. I may have to fix that...

Happy spring!

Also, it attracts the bees like crazy! (important if you have bee sting allergy.)
