I bought some things to plant today
Yes, I bought three pounds of seed potatoes (Kennebec), some onion sets, and a couple of perennial flowers to set out.
The lady checking me out at Orscheln's looked askance at one plant I bought, the one labeled "Hummingbird Vine".
"Hmph," she snorted. "That's just a trumpet vine. It will spread everywhere."
I wondered if I should just tell her to keep it, but I responded, "So you're telling me to be very careful where I plant it?"
"I'd say so," she snorted.
Obviously this woman has had some serious problems with the plant.
My regular readers know all about my intimate relationship with Google.
The lady was right, as you can see HERE. I guess I'll not plant it near the house amongst all my other flowery plants.
I hope I remember to thank that woman next time I'm in Richmond.
