Well, Margaret, you certainly did give us all a lecture on pure
Nature in the raw! 

About as close as we get to see live things in the garden happens 
to be two outdoor-cats who shouldn't be here, and a zillion 
squirrels that insist upon making holes in the grass. Don't have 
grubs, but we sure have acorns! 

About 4 years ago I was given a wonderful gift of three 8-inch tall
rhododendrons picked up by a member of the Rhodo Society 
just south of Washington, DC, somewheres. They are now 3 ft
tall, and scheduled to be transplanted next spring into their 
permanent home. . . .    Meanwhile, we had reached the very last
splotch in the rear lawn which I had Roundup'd, and Jimmie had
the Weed Whacker running to hit the long dead duff which was 
still clinging to the earth, so I could seed. Of course, he swung 
around and next thing I knew, I now have TWO 3 ft rhododendrons,
and one 1-footer. 

No comment. But yes, that's why I don't want him to eat his honey
dew melon with a knife. You never know.......
