this isn't actually a trade post, other than to tell kenny his oxalis is on it's way, and to show him what he is getting, and show anyone who is looking the difference between "clover" the "weed" and "clover" which is actually wood sorrel aka oxalis.

i took this pic on my porch about 10 minutes ago. the purple stuff is oxalis, what i sent kenny, and the green is clover weed.


and i don't know what the other green stuff is [Embarrassed]

Thanks Jiffy...there is a size difference definately between the two, no wonder when I looked around out yead, none of the clovers (what I used to think were oxalis) had little bulbs!

and, actually when you see the "bulbs" of the oxalis, it is one of those "duh - slap the forehead" things, cause they aren't bulbs at all, but that is the only word for them! if you can believe, they were totally frozen back last week, and that is today. so, i'm glad i have some on their way to you. should be there on tuesday.

Do you have a large flowerbed jiffy/

right now, i don't have any flower beds, except my bulb beds, but i will have quite a few smallish ones.

and you are right, i think they do call them tubers, but i don't think that is an adequate description either!
