One of my favorite trees is the Redbud (Cercis canadensis), which blooms in February here in North Texas.

Ahh, love the Redbud. In southern PA, where I used to live, it was one of the sights I really looked forward to in spring. They grew like weeds there.

It's native to Texas too, a very fine ornamental tree. But you might have guessed that I like it from my online name!

Until I read you entire post, I was wondering if it was the tree that inspired your name. Very good choice. smile.gif I love how it has heart shaped leaves, too.

It depends what mood I'm in I guess.

Mostly I love herbs, I LOVE COOKING.

Just the smell of some herbs make me think of very happy times I've had. They can grow to be big and beatiful, and they can be made into wonderful dishes!

O'siyo,
~ I had someone near and dear to me give me an Aloe Plant~ It was huge..when I 'broke' it up so that I could re-pot it, this thing made 6 nice size plants with 2 in each pot~ rolleyes.gif I am amazed at how great they are doing and how detailed and warm their colors are~ I keep one of the plants on my back porch and I couldn't count the tymes that I have pinched from it wink.gif It's nice to pinch a stem and then put it in the refrigerator..after a relaxing shower or soak, get your Aloe and carefully slice down the sides of the plant long-ways~ Scrape the Gel from the plant and rub around eye and forehead area~ So relaxing and so good for the skin! I believe it to be better than Vitamin E, my opinion only dry.gif So I guess one could say that I am enjoying my new Aloe Plants~

Aren't Aloe plants also used for burns?

I know this thread has run its course..I apologize. But I could not let it go.

Yes Aloe is good for treating minor burns.

I've recently moved to a zone 8 and this year has been quite a treat, a pleasant feast for the eyes!

Herbs have withstood the test of time-- Lavender will always be true for me. My mother introduced me to Lavender at an early age. At first I didn't care much for the scent but it grew on me. This is the very first item that I was shown from the natural world. It invokes deep feelings and vague memories of my childhood and now that my mother has passed away at a tender age it binds me to her somehow. I can't explain it any better than that.

There is also a tree I "discovered" this Spring-- its technical term is the Prunus Mume, a japanese plum tree that blooms fuschia flowers in tiny clusters and bewitches me with a delicate floral signature. My first encounter was at a nearby botanical garden...what a memory!

Have you such a memory linked to a certain perennial, annual or evergreen you'd like to share perhaps?

Some threads run their course -- others just go dormant until there's a good rain. wink.gif

I have a memory of pine woods on summer afternoons, in the place in the Adirondacks where we used to go camping when I was a kid, on the Mohawk Trail. In my home town there were no solid pine stands that I know of, so I totally associate it with that place and those times. There is something almost hypnotic about the surrounding scent of pine, pine and more pine when the air is dry and warm, with a shallow stony brook running not far off, a bit of a breeze, a bird calling or a squirrel scolding here and there. And nothing else but me and my book. I can go back to ten years old in a heartbeat with one whiff of real pine on a warm day.

I love heather. I thought I would try to grow some this year. Does anyone know of any varieties that will grow in a zone 6?

I too really enjoy roses. I really enjoy "brass band" breed of rose. Other plants include, but no limited to:

Dahlias
Geraniums
Citrus (Orange blossoms smell wonderful!)
Cherry (though I haven't grown one myself)
Olive (gorgeous bark)
Mint (when it's contained. LOL)
Thistle (hey it's a medicine & a scottish icon)
Aloe (also a medicine)
Wisteria (beautiful long plumes of purple flowers)
Fushia (though haven't had much luck with)
Bamboo
Dichondra (was a trendy ground cover alternative in the 70's)
Monkey Grass

Basil, oregano and rosemary in my herb garden. You just brush them with your clothes and they greet you with clouds of scent. Also love English holly, black-eyed Susans, and young, skinny maple saplings when they bloom in April, looking like so many leggy little girls.
