I have no idea when it comes to plants. I could tell you a lot about mesquite trees though and its deadly sap and thorns. That is really about as far as my knowledge extends.
Today, I bought two pots of mums. I placed one on either side of my front door to my house. You could called a beautification project if you want. Each are about two adn half feet in diameter and I picked yellow flowers.
Since tomorrow is my surgery, do not be surprised to find even less of me on the web. I will try to update you all as soon as I can.
