Memorable Automobiles from The Past:
Now, for today:
Not Rooting for the Belmont Raiders, Braves, Cowboys or Dolphins, BUT rooting plants.
When we moved in this trailer there were
some citrus trees and a several bushes. Sherry let me know the names of some.
One was a Bradford Pear tree, that doesn’t grow pears (makes no sense to me!).
And a couple Hibiscus. (I remembered
them after she said that because my brother Junior had some giant hibiscus and
the 3 year old twins called the ‘High Biscuits’.
Ok, then there was a couple small ones just little blue flowers
on. At the corner was a 4 foot plant, leafy. Not an eye sore, just a nice
BUT wow as we stayed here the top leaves turned RED, my girl was
excited. “Honey this is a poinsettia!” We were very excited. We noted down the
street one trailer had them along the side. A couple days ago I mentioned to
Sherry I would ask Friend Don (of Don & Evelyn) how to ‘root’ some
cuttings. The things must be hearty, it reached near 32 here the night before.
I cut each little limb and I am trying to root them. I read where
some honey would help. So I have two bunches of stems I am trying to root. One
bunch I have fed a little honey.
It happened before I had a chance to ask Don. But I read that I need to change the water every few days. So I am going to have to figure a way to haul them in the motor home.
What do you think, do you root? (I never have)..
