    strange thing though it did disappear when placed in the sun. i was told it was probably mildew.
    going to see what another 24 hours does to it.

    Powdery mildew is a pita. I only ever got it on one of my clematis plants because it doesn't get very good air circulation. By the time I noticed it was affected it was too late as it got the whole plant. I just left it alone and winter killed it. The plant is back and doing great this spring, but I suspect it will be hit again if it gets too hot this summer. It doesn't kill the plant but it stresses it.

    Probably the reason it disappeared from your little rose is because you brought it outside - the air circulation improved around it. I put those roses out almost every summer, they do great for me. My only suggestion is you take it out of the small pot and replant it into a bigger one or even into the garden (if you haven't already) otherwise you'll be spending your entire summer making sure that it's not thirsty. Don't crowd it with other plants, just let it be happy on its own, otherwise the mildew will come back. When you water it, only do so from the bottom, don't soak the leaves. Not much else I can suggest unless you plan on going the chemical route. In the past I've used the baking soda, dishsoap, water recipe to get rid of the mildew but it's not all that effective. If it does come back and it's not too drastic just try pinching off the affected area and change its location to one with better air circulation. Throw it out in the sun too, but not all at once if it hasn't been out in it yet - plants get sunburned like we do too. Gradually introduce it to the sun, a little bit at a time. Am I rambling? Sorry, it's early.

    Well I am hoping this is the solution to my hydrangea problem. They are beautiful until the first heavy rain then they bend over and break. The cage is 4 feet tall and I bent over the top so the tallest ones in the middle won't bend over.

    Hmmm, inquiring minds ... what KIND of hydrangea is it Patty ? Is it a "climbing" kind ?

    Three clumps of lilies are appearing above the soil. Yay! Plan on purchasing extra soil this week and start my planting.

    Jeepers it rained that icky cold rain all day yesterday and was windy like crazy. It reminds me of last year when we had this same thing and farmers lost a lot of their crops.

    Hopefully there was no damage.

    I hear you Patty, I had checked the soil of all the garden things over Sun/Mon and they did not need any watering until yesterday, so I soaked everything nicely first thing in the a.m.
    Then of COURSE we got a torrential downpour hammering all my little newly sprouted seedling tops! It kept coming and going ( the showers)
    Could not bear to look at anything last night, but this morning I was surprised to see they all survived! I am curious if anyone has grown parsley from seed? They are the only things that have not even broke through the soil as yet?? Basil, peas, beans, spinach and lettuce have all made their debut appearance.

    I'm not minding the rain so much as the cold temps... 7,8,9 degrees !! I'm stressed that my plants are stressed I've read that parsley can take 3 weeks or more to germinate, have you tried paper towel/ziploc germination...I've found a lot of my seeds sprout faster that way and there's actually seeds I couldn't get to germinate in soil which do well with this method
