I bought these little plants a few years ago in early spring. The leaves were a little bit meaty, but not as thick as a succulent. Over the spring and summer the plants grew huge, with long vine-y parts, but the leaves stayed more or less the same size - no more than an inch or two long. At the very peak of summer they did have a little red flower that came out, one or two of them on each plant. It looked almost like a tiny red daisy.
Anyway, I brought them inside in the fall and
they did not like it. I'd love to be able to buy some new ones, if only I knew what they were!
Thanks in advance for any ideas!

My vinca vines are much leggier...more stem, less density.
While looking like something from outer space or the Deep Lagoon. This animal is native to Colorado. Lives in waterways and ponds from prairies to Denver to the mountains. Do you know
what it is?

Mudpuppies? They look like something on the way to becoming a salamander.
It's prime gardening season in many places right now and we're getting a lot of questions on Hometalk from members facing challenges with their yards. Sometimes it's an old space with a
vexing problem, sometimes it's the blank slate of a new yard. To show you such issues are not insurmountable, I am starting this thread where Hometalk members can show before and after photos from their gardens, and I'll break the ice with two pairs of photos from my own backyard. As the before photos (taken almost exactly three years ago) show, when I bought this neglected little house, the"yard" was nothing but sand and weeds. Today, happily, things look rather different. So start uploading, and let's show folks what can be done!
I have a vintage iron chaise white with some rust. and a glass top table to match. Do I paint it? If so what color? I'm torn and need help with the decision. I'm open for all suggestions, it's in good shape with nice wheels

Buy your cushions first and your paint second. Find a color in the fabric that you love and go
Since we are sharing address signs, I thought I would share my pinterest inspired house numbers. Three thrift store frames glued to greet treated plywood with oversized wooden numbers. Paint colors come from the house, sans white trim. Each frame is affixed to a cedar stake. Found the galvanized boiler at a yard sale and even though it was in immaculate condition, drilled drainage holes without any sense of guilt whatsoever.

I got the numbers at Menard's (Big Box Home Improvement). They were much cheaper there and
since they are hardwood, more likely to withstand the elements.
