  1. That reminds me I had several clumps of crocus scattered through out that yard too. Never messed with tulips because at my other house squirrels ate them.
  2. I get that. I have been watching to see what flowers pop up here. There have been daffodils, hyacinths, and large beds of tulips blooming. It was even good seeing a dandelion.
  3. I gave my seeds, grow boxes and planters away. For several years we would be searching for seed potatoes to plant near St. Patricks day. I really loved gardening in our raised beds. Miss my asparagus bed too. I think gardening and watching things grow can be therapeutic. I was always amazed at how much plants grew or changed over night. My avatar is a photo of a small section of a very long row of my daffodils at old place. One of the reasons moving made me sad was because of leaving all the flowers and bushes most were splits or starts from friends and relatives most long gone.
  4. Yes Chris that is funny thinking about that Patriots truck hauling those masks into NY. I would love to be able to hug/snuggle/pet your beautiful girls about now. Well we got an email this evening that an associate working in a non- patient care position in a contained area at the care center here on campus has tested positive for covid 19. They were asymptomatic when on campus. Governor finally put whole state on shelter in place. Many counties had already started shelter in place 11 days ago. Sis and niece decided to give me the weekend off! ·
  5. Chris I was just talking with a friend yesterday and she was wondering about buying plants to put in her garden spot but not wanting to shop for them. I told her to get online and check out the old seed catalogue companies, order seeds and start them herself. I feel a bit bad for those here at the village that paid for their garden spots for the year and planted their spring crops because last I heard they werent allowing them over there. On the nice days when I am here I watch the grounds guys busy at work-----mowing, fertilizing, cutting trees down etc.
  6. It was just one thing I heard. Most likely its like everything else around here. It depends on who is in control and where their money is coming from.
  7. Mary Jo at first I was surprised by hardware stores being open but I would sure hate to not have running water or electricity for lack of the needed part. Many of the hardware stores here also carry all kinds of cleaning supplies and pet food. Menards also carries quit a bit of food, including milk and lots of cleaning supplies and maybe even toilet paper. The issue here has been with Bass Pro. County told them to close but had to let them open back up because there is a state law prohibiting cities and state from restricting the sales of guns and ammo in a state of emergency but they can only sale gun and gun safety related products. Guess you gotta protect that toilet paper. I was shocked yesterday to learn that Michaels JoAnns and Hobby Lobby were still open. I thought sure they were closed as I was trying to figure out what I was going to need to make masks to wear in public. I really dont want to cut up my new 100% cotton night gown. I might have some fabric but with moving dont know where its at and most likely it is a cotton poly blend. I have the large red or blue 100% cotton hankies so I am leaning towards the bandito look.
  8. Thanks for sharing. It brightened my day up a bit. It is raining off and on here and temp is dropping---might freeze tonight. Waiting on more samples to arrive to see if they work meanwhile another frustrating day with supplies that do not work and niece scrambling for more of same to get us thru the weekend.
  9. Chris one story I heard was that the medical system didnt need to be swamped with people going thru withdrawal right now.
  10. I can see the hardware stores being open----I have spent emergency time in plumbing aisle. Just saw Hobby Lobby Michaels and JoAnns are still open here. I sort of thought they would be closed.
  11. Judy glad to hear you are doing ok and was able to get supplies. I saw all that on the news and its so hard for me to not totally freak out. I feel really bad for the medical community and their families. I feel for all those in the hospitals separated from their families and those dying alone and their families not being to have a funeral and grieving together. I do not understand why people do not take this serious. Our governor has yet to issue stay at home orders for state. Many counties have. He did mandate groups of no more than 10, social distancing, and only those providing essential services into nursing homes and retirement communities. The friend that lives nearby has a son that just now got a positive result for it. He lives somewhere in this area and works on equipment at the VA. His family had visited his mil a couple of weeks ago. Mil is a PA at Mayo clinic and has tested pos. Sis and niece gave me a day off but I have been busy all day catching up on things here. Cindy glad you got what you needed at the store. Sorry your bil isnt getting better. Isnt that the way of it------all the time we were working we wished we could spend days on end at home doing things and now when you are supposed to stay home you dont feel like it?
  12. Katy I saw this last night and was just crushed. Also just heard from my friend that lives nearby her son went to ER mon and is waiting results on covid 19 testing. He works on equipment at VA. His family had visited with his mil who is a PA at Mayo clinic a couple of weeks ago and she has since tested positive. Even though they most likely will be okay the huge worry is who all did they infect before symptoms appeared. And this had a good tip on how to handle bringing groceries home. https://www.sunset.com/lifestyle/wellness/grocery-shopping-quarantine-covid-19 Article points out most tp is not being hoarded. https://marker-medium-com.cdn.ampproject.org/v/s/marker.medium.com/amp/p/c812e1358fe0?amp_js_v=a3&amp_gsa=1&usqp=mq331AQFKAGwASA%3D#referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com&amp_tf=From %1%24s&ampshare=https%3A%2F%2Fmarker.medium.com%2Fwhat-everyones-getting-wrong-about-the-toilet-paper-shortage-c812e1358fe0
