We were given two hands to hold, two eyes to see, two ears to listen & two legs to walk. But why were we given only one heart?
The other heart was given to another for us to find.

UH HUH!!! lol shock nono

Beautiful flower!

I had some seeds started this year - got them from Jiffy 2 winters ago, but my batch last year didn't make it. This batch has gotten overgrown by my bee balm - wonder if I can move them now? I also didn't realize that the plants get that huge?

Is your friends in a pot or will she have to dig up from ground.?/
In the pot anytime is fine.. In the ground I'd say do it asap in the early hours of the morning before the sun gets too warm,. sooner the better so the roots will get established Before Fall. And If she is taking from the ground get a lot of soil surrounding the roots so as to not disturb the roots too much!

a lot of the buds have Bloomed but only one at a time I think it would look really awesome with at least a few of them blooming at once!

Christy the Buds do look cool don't they,, Just as they are about to Bloom( within hours) the bud hangs down and then it opens and displays its star.

Gardenermom~~ Tooooooo Funny about your MIL LOL
