Makes My Heart Sing
I am a sick sick woman when it comes to flowers. I decided to head out this morn to check out my local grocery store's, yes I said grocery store, choice of beauties and filled my back trunk to the brim. I just happened to hit it at just the right moment as the delivery truck was unloading pot upon pot of lovelies just when I pulled into the parking lot. Then, figuring I still had the back seat free I headed for my favorite local garden center and you guessed it, I filled that too. I say it again, I am a sick sick woman when it comes to flowers. And I still have more to buy. I lost 2 out of 3 rose bushes in my back yard, sad face inserted here, so I still need to replace those and there are more pots to fill.
I have now switched to begonias for planting in my front shade garden. Impatiens were always my mainstay but they have developed some sort of plant disease and many garden centers aren't even selling them this year. I planted them last year and they were happy all summer with no problems, but decided to be safe this year with begonias. Drats!! I will still plant them in pots, just not in the ground. Rumor says that if your soil gets infected with the whatever they are calling this disease you have to wait 7 years to replant again. YIKES!!
So the planting and cleaning continues and it does feel so good to be outdoors in short sleeves. Makes my heart sing and the kids love it when Mom is outside all day.
