On a happier note here is my Chocolate Solider which I put outside too early and the cool weather almost made it history. I think it has recovered very well.
A closer look. It is a member of the violet family so it cannot take cool weather. It will be the first plant I move back inside. The first one I ever saw of these was at The Hermitage, home of Andrew Jackson.
Purple Jew was looking rather ragged so I cut it off and threw all but tips over board (I now have a carpet of the stuff below the porch) It will grow very rapidly and drape over the sides. I usually put this out in the hall so I can see it from the kitchen as I work.
The kitty justice is for all of us to pray at least nine or eleven minutes for those that were lost on this date. Let us not forget.
