No prayer, just good thoughts about welcoming you back from a speedy recovery.

Thanks for the group Sentient.  I'm betting you'll be here after I'm fertilizer.

For what it's worth to all active here -

This is the main group that I participate in online.  It was the first group I set up, when I joined Nexus in 2008.  So you all matter to me

Next tuesday I will be having surgery for stomach cancer.   Overall prognosis is reasonable, although there is uncertainty about the type and some vagueness about the anatomy.  The surgeon will have to figure that out once he's opened my belly.

I treasure the discussions here.  After tues, I may be offline for a while.  Hard to say.  I hope you will continue discussing your plants and flowers, vegetables and trees and gardens and yards.

Unfortunately, they wont give me the tumor to compost and feed the trees.  I didn't ask but this is 2013.

A week to go before surgery.  Meanwhile will be nursing along my little fig trees.

At least here no one will pray for me.  Glad for that!

Dallas can you show me their condition by photographs. May be we can save some of them. Cactus can be restored from conditions which are sure death for other plants.

Thanks for the beautiful picture, Sentient! My surroundings will look like that in 3 or 4 weeks, I think. Do you spray fruit trees that are threatened by night frost? They say it's a good method to save the harvest.

Sentient, your garden is so pretty. Far more color than I yet have. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 17, 2013 at 11:22pm
Sentient, yes, spring is so unpredictable; we have to be flexible and ready for anything. Breaking dormancy too early is a problem.
Comment by Joan Denoo on March 17, 2013 at 11:15pm
Dallas, your comment intrigued me and so I looked them up. My goodness, you have a lovely group of plants that may be vulnerable. They each are so pretty. Here is what I found:
Dallas the Phallus

Mammillaria mystax

Notocactus magnificus,
https://www.google.com/search?q=Notocactus+magnificus,&hl=en&am...

Spaghetti Strap agaves,

Opuntia microdasys
https://www.google.com/search?q=Opuntia+microdasys&hl=en&so...

Mammillaria hahania
https://www.google.com/search?q=Mammillaria+hahania&hl=en&s...

Tecomaria
https://www.google.com/search?q=Tecomaria&hl=en&source=lnms...

Do you have many left? What was your temperature that caused the problems? The Dallas area should be able to provide enough warmth; I am surprised.

Joan,

We had some hail today in Battleground.  A couple of nights anticipated in high 20s or below 32.  This is the cruel part of early spring here - trees bloom, and having lost the protection of dormancy, die in a freeze.  Or at least, no fruit.  

But, that's the joy of gardening.  We never know!

Below freezing last night and a snifter of snow in Spokane today.
