loong - I just couldn't imagine living in such cold - one surely has to be born into it! I suppose it would be much the same as living in the desert areas of the world, got to be born into that heat.

I remember when Johannesburg had snow - it never happens but that day in September 1981 it did. I was working in an office with a Scottish lady who had been in S A as an immigrant for about 2 months, and she was very dismissive of our excitement, Firstly she couldn't understand the fuss we all made about playing in the snow and building snowmen etc, but also laughed at us for feeling cold ... she said it was like a mild day in Scotland so what was the fuss about the temperature?

Oh dear - I think it has to do with having 'thick' blood or something. Anyway, that may have helped her with her feeling not cold - but it certainly didn't help her dyspeptic view on our snow fun! Shame. Cheers

Dear Lestie

Last nite another -35degrees.We do not wear shorts or bermudas.
This year the fashion for headgear,is fur or I prefer fake fur,not killing animals ,in which ,yoy have the two sides of the head ,wether up when not too cold let's say -15 but -30 the side flaps go down and cover your ears ond part of the neck .

67 years old which means ,I have live in cold and snow for close to half of that.
And yes our blood thickens in winter.We eat more meat,not me .
I am a vegetarian ,much more fat to be able to cope with the cold.

Where I live is a ski resort ,people actually living year round
9000, people,weekends goes to maybe 50,000.Especially in spring for the spring skying getting tanned and such.

Isn't internet fantastic You in the scorching heat and I in the
scorching cold,and we can have this lovely conversation.

Don't get sunburned ,now,I might get cold frost ,but I dress well.

Happy to talk to you

loong
Mont Tremblant,Quebec,Canada.

Hi loong,

What trees and plants grow there for you to talk to? What do people do for gardening, especially in containers.

You are so right - this internet is a joy!

Cheers now

Lori and Yvonnie - what results do you get? Do you see them or do you just talk to your plants anyway because, well, maybe you are a bit touched?

Smile now - people catching me doing it 'look at me funny' as they say here and I just laugh.

I swear that a philodendron that cracked because of the weight of the leaves MENDED because I patched it up immediately and tied it together with with stockings. I propped it up and the whole arrangement looked a bit odd for a few months, but I played Mozart and spoke to her all the time (I call her Annie) and just last week I undid the bandages and there, it had knotted together. I was amazed. Truly.

I did not lose a plant and may even have flouted some rules or expectations. Anyway, Annie is now propped up and supported nicely and still giving me new leaves as I trim her back. Bless her.

Cheers now

My plants did well.

That said, I am a bit touched. There is an old willow tree at the lake. He stands alone. He has a bit of fungus on him, but he is majestic. I used to make a point to hug him and tell him how much I loved him at least once a week. Then, we moved.

I haven't checked on him lately and have been wondering how he is doing.

Yep, people look at me funny. smile
