Well...deep subject! Ha ha

Well...so...after the plants and seeds are in the ground and begin to grow and sprout and flower...what else is there to say about my garden? I could I suppose continuously update with photos of roses and other flowers as they bloom and prosper. But, that would be boring...hmmm, wouldn't it?

It's truly delightful to come home each evening and wake up each morning to peek at the flowers and plants in the front and back yards. I touch flower petals and whisper sweet nothings - you are supposed to talk to plants, aren't you? Rose petals are so soft; petunias are sticky; Cosmos are delicate; Calla Lilies are smooth, cool and firm.

Next weekend, I'll closely examine the soil under the redwood compost we put down last weekend to see if it succeeded in reduced the volume of little green unwanted plants (i.e., weeds) from growing. Looks good so far.

One of the New Guinea Impatiens I planted in a container for our front porch wilted away badly last week so I pulled it out Thursday evening. One down...I hope no more to go.

The Calla Lilies aren't as spry as they were when I first planted them. I'm not sure if the hot weather we're having is getting to them, or if I'm watering too much or not enough. I've given them plant food once or twice since they were planted about a month ago. Maybe that was too much. Hmmm...

The green beans are growing fast - about 2 inches long now.

The 3 packages of ground-planted wildflower/etc. seeds have produced more very tiny white flowers, a stalk of something that hasn't flowered yet, and a single yellow flower of some unknown variety. Instead of planting flower seeds next year, I'll probably plant established flowering plants (like I did in the front yard this year) - I'm much more pleased by the instantaneous results of seeing pretty colors right away! On second thought, however, I was very delighted to see the first sprouts from the seeds, so I'm not sure what I'll do next year. Hmmm, that is...if I'm still a gardener next year! (You never know - I may be into something else then!)
