UB stands for "you bet," too.  Now that that hummer is acclimated to the,
ummmm, scent...and climate of Lewiston, Idaho, a cutting would be just the
thing.  Get that baby rooted while you scout around your yard for exactly
the right microclimate to plant it in, once it roots.  If that's the only
gardening thang you do this year, it will be a biggie.  Margaret
