(Double Pink Knockout rose bush)
I had big gardening plans this weekend.
I scurried around to some of my favorite places looking at plants,
believe it or not,
that I scooped up because they are so hard to find.
I am working on a perennial border of white plumbago around the backyard .
Some day , if I have a granddaughter,
I look forward to saying,
“Let’s go outside and pick plumbago blooms and wear them as earrings.”
That makes me laugh thinking about it.
I think I am going to wear them anyway when my grandsons visit,
I bought a mint plant, so I can have
fresh mint for my iced tea,
In Spanish it is called Corona de Cristo-
But sometimes nature has other plans.
It turned rainy and cold this weekend.
My 60 caladium bulbs, which I am late in planting,
and my million packets of zinnia seeds will have to wait just a bit longer.
I also need to plant my tomato plants.
The county extension agent in our county said he
always plants tomatoes on Valentine’s Day.
That doesn’t sound very romantic…
