I can't believe you've had four of them!! I'm sorry...that shouldn't be funny...and what kind of KID steals a Southern Living Garden Book?!

I can understand your reluctance to buy a new one, but really, who's left to steal it that doesn't have it already? :rofling:

I don't have much of a garden anymore, but one year I used one of those 'blankets' that had seeds embedded in them. I had no idea of what was going to come up, so it was a lot of fun to watch it develop. I had some beautiful flowers that year! Now I have a very large deck over where my 'garden' was. I'd love to plant flowers but I don't want to go through the initial work to get the area set up. I'll just stop in here and look at all your beautiful flowers.

I've been tempted to buy one of those blankets just for the surprise factor! At the back edge of our yard is a wooden fence; I think a blankie of wildflowers would look nice back there. Of course to plant the blankie I'd need a tiller...oh well. Maybe next year

I know it's not a knitting question but... I can't resist asking since there's a specialist in our midst!

Thanks, Angela
Hi Angela! Crape myrtles aren't hardy where I live, so I don't have any experience on them.

I did find this information from the U of Georgia Extension Service...that might be helpful!

Thanks, I know UGA's web site and am not really sure I didn't think to check it before asking you. Glad I'm holding off on doing that "spring stuff" because it was down right.. brisk this morning! The 30's are brisk, right?

Later, Ang
