|Can't Wait To Be Planted|
Had ya worried for a second there didn't I? Lets talk about planting as in planting, plants!
I must say gardening here in Florida has it's challenges. The confusion lies in the fact that the weather here is beautiful most of the time! Up north there are seasons and growing flowers is a pretty cut and dry operation. Warm, flowers, cold no flowers, perennials and bulbs pretty much follow suit! I know for sure that many varieties must go thru a freeze to bloom the following year.
Thinking that my house would be in full color all year thru was wishful thinking on my part, to say the very least. Do annuals grow all year? What happens to perennials after they bloom? To add insult to injury they have plants here called Flannuals??? Typical of my personality (a feet first kind of person) I figured I would just plant anything I loved and hope for the best resulting in the most beautiful sand pit you could ever imagine, void of color! I want my green thumb back folks and will keep on trying, almost understanding why my neighbor sticks silk flowers in her garden along with gaudy plastic ornamentation. A true feast for the discerning eye!
