A cruel person with a garden gave it to you.  :-)

Well, I'd have to toss it in a meadow.  And I'd have to kill the 
person who gave it to me.  Unless there was one plant that I liked 
and didn't have -- then I'd just have to wish I'd killed the giver.  
I hope you are a stronger person than I and can safe yourself the 
aggravation by throwing them out now.  (I bet it's a lost cause but 
I'm rooting for you anyway.)

Not a single thing.  But we're leaving for the Rose Bowl on the 31st 
and will be spending a week in southern California for our Christmas. 
Works for me.  

I'm enjoying the seed catalogues as they slowly arrive in fewer 
numbers than last year.  Is Henry Fields the same thing as Gurney's?
