    1. believe it or don't, I am allergic to the smell of hyacinths; keep them outside but NEVER bring them indoors!

      I passed a potted (heh) plant display at my weis on sunday and I had to scurry away quickly; the scent was overpowering and I felt my throat close up in response.

      getting potted is fun if ya don't have to drive anywhere!

  14. I wish my flowers would bloom nicely. My azaleas are throwing up the middle finger with a "yeah, here's your flowers, a$$h0l3". Nothing else yet.

    Peace <3
