One of the things that has remained constant in my life is:
I kill plants
Not on purpose, of course, but I can’t seem to keep greenery alive.
At my old job, I was so pleased with myself for having a thriving plant. Then my co-workers confessed that they had been taking care of it for me when I was gone for the day.
(I don’t work there anymore, so not surprisingly, my plant is no more)
But I’ve decided to try again, this time with outdoor flowers:
^confession: my hubby is actually the one who technically planted these. Well, except for the hosta, it was already there.
We planted mums:
And we planted this thing:
^My mom gave it to me and said it grew as a straight, red stalk. Any gardeners out there who recognize this and can give me a name???
So this is my newly planted garden. In a few months, I will either be excited by fall blooms or I will be weeping over the destruction.
