I was really happy when two of my neighbors noticed the greenhouse get moved into it's new spot a few weeks ago..
They both needed some beds split and said if I split them for them I could take whatever I wanted...so now I have new Hostas, Bearded Iris's and a plethora of Canna's
Especially thrilled about the Canna's as when I lived in Newberry, Tropicana noticed during a visit that some of the one's I bought from the Horn co-op had mosaic virus - so I ripped out 5 beds of them - that was tough to do but I knew the right thing so they didn't affect other plants like EE...anyways...I love how gardening can bring neighbors together..
I wish more of my neighbors gardened so we could exchange things. The neighbor immediately left of me does a decent amount, but my yard really sticks out on my street because no one else seems to care about gardening or landscaping in the neighborhood :(
I love Hostas, but all mine get burned so badly since my yard gets so much sun. I wish there was something else that looked like hostas I could grow. I love how they come back bigger and more beautiful every year - at least until the sun finally gets them.
The lady who was in charge of the HOA has left, and the new guy is pretty slack when it comes to enforcing the rules. Still, every year I worry I'll get another letter. But so far, no further "complaints" from them.
I guess I should probably take all those pink flamingos down though. j/k
Don't I wish! Pink Flamingo is one of my fav movies!!!
Actually, my husband used to give me a hibiscus and a flamingo every time he screwed up badly. After four of them, he needed to move up to jewelery...;)
The big one is a Christmas gift from him years ago.
I still miss Devine and Edie the egg lady. His early movies were so deliciously decadent, and they're still shocking. I used to have a cat named Francine Fishpaw:-) Pink Flamingos forever, and long live John Waters - the pride of Baltimore!
