Aren't you just a random thing that exists by chance? look at the randomness of which sperm fertilizes an egg, it isn' the first one, it takes so many to eat away at teh egg lining and one get through out of millions at random.

yes,. it is random. do you have aproblem with that? does it make you feel insignificant? do you have aneed to feel you were specially created? why?

I just know how deep to plant them by estimating their size and judging the soil. Of some i haven't got a clue what they are.:)
Normally they should be underground allready for months.
See that's just it. We understand all about plots and soil but pots are like an alien invasion.

I was thinking of getting dove birds so that's a good thing with sunflowers then. But I really prefer the giant sunflowers than the wild ones. The iris will get a lot of sun from where I live.
Please tell me you aren't thinking of keeping birds in a cage....

For the birds thus and to plant them.
Well that's your birdfeeder in one go. So why would you put birdfeeders extra up?(I suddenly feel so dim :-/

not sure where you are, but in Minnesota many perennial bulbs won't work in pots unless you bring the pots into semi-cold storage for the winter as they soil will get too cold in the pots if left outside..

many of our non -bulb perennial plants have the same problem. they can survive the -50f in the ground, but no in a raised bed or pot.

I still have loads of bulbs but no garden, so now it's about the art of getting them to grow in pots. How?
I gave my last tree away to the church. Some disease ate their trees and they are the only ones having the place and that take in pathetic orphant democrats. In the summer i'm going to check up if they took care of it.
So you have a problem with democrats? oh great...

According to the US Fish and Game and the Wildlife management institute, the mortality rate for doves in the wild is more than 58% per year for adults and 69% for juveniles. Life span in the wild is 1.5 years for adults. This is pretty sad since doves lifespan in captivity can exceed 20 years. According to their publications and research, this is indicative of hunting which is responsible for 90% of the deaths and the remaining 10% due to poisons, predators and disease.

They'll cheer you up no end.

The most common isotope of hydrogen is protium (name rarely used, symbol 1H) with a single proton and no neutrons. As the simplest atom known, the hydrogen atom has been of theoretical use. For example, as the only neutral atom with an analytic solution to the Schrödinger equation, the study of the energetics and bonding of the hydrogen atom played a key role in the development of quantum mechanics.

25% of Helium gas in the universe is a lot. Therefore we conclude that a very hot phase must have occurred.
The (simple)idea is big bang, hot quick expansion, backgroundradiation, cool down phase, forming the universe as we know it, with another acceleration phase.
T0 +400,000 would be about the formation of hydrogen nucleotides.
protium does not need a neutron, just a proton and other reactions would quickly follow, so formation would have happened in the hot phase and cooldown to form.

I'm half a page behind, you both sure have something else to work from than a simple laptop.
For two winters i wrapped the tree and the pot. The roots develop very fine, where i know that in an actual garden a trumpetleaf tree can have solid wide spread roots and enormous leaves. Great to sit under in summer. But in a pot the growth is stumped, that's how you get ever smaller plants.

would you rathter live longer in a cage or shorter and be free? why did your other birds keep trying to get out?

if your pets have to be caged to keep them from escaping, you are just a jailor, not a pet owner...
