I had a nice visit Friday afternoon, Sept. 12, with Edna Whitcomb of Grangeville. She showed me her dieffenbachia plant which had blooms (which she had never seen previously) and we clipped one and peeked inside. Sure enough, lots of seeds in there. The plant leaves can be toxic so I was sure to wash my hands thoroughly after inspecting the bloom. Edna gave me a couple of wonderful, freshly-baked peanut butter cookies as well as a beautiful little scarf in Bulldog blue colors. Thanks, Edna!
