Mickey goes bonkers at every boom 🙁 Patricia L Cunningham I know. Got lucky with my critters. We can see the Fort Vancouver fireworks from our living room. Mister was sitting in the window watching with rapt attention. Posy ran and hid in bedroom, but then, everything scares her. Sweetie Pea and puppies didn’t reacted from what I could tell. It did seem a little better this year. Did you think so? Peter Herpst Hope your Fourth was as spectacular as those beautiful plants! Patricia L Cunningham We watched the Fort Vancouver fireworks from our living room–because we’re sure as heck not going out there with all those people! Hope yours was grand too. ricki grady ‘Spider Web’ seems to be a show stopper. We got a shipment and they all sold right away. ‘Lucifer’ is my kind of fireworks. Patricia L Cunningham I really like it. It’s vigorous and trustworthy. Lucifer was here when we came. I think it could easily take over the town. I swear, I’ll divide this fall. Cheers, Rickii. Tim Vojt Gorgeous. Love that Lobelia tupa: of course if I can’t grow it, I am required to love it!
