A friend of mine picked this pair of shoes up at a flea market and asked me to plant them with hen & chicks for her. I think they will soon be overcome by them, but they DID turn out cute! Arlene

NOTES:

RE: Hydrogen Peroxide Treatment Question (Follow-Up #1)

Hydrogen Peroxide is the reason rainwater affects plants more positively than tap or well water. I've never used it, but folks have sworn by it for decades. It supposedly not only stimulates growth, but enhances production, preserves blossoms and acts as a harmless (?) insecticide.

NOTES:

try this

RE: cracking marbles (Follow-Up #3)

I did the samething as a kid. We put them in the frying pan heated them really hot then popped them in water with ice cubes. And they cracked as soon as they hit the water.

NOTES:

the cracked marbles were used in spinners, gazing balls,I was leaning toward blues in a bird bath
