I'm blue over the death of my geranium. Unable to think why it died...needed to be pruned??, lack of enough water?? (don't think so). Oh well, could not figure out what to do with those wonderful fragrant leaves anyway.
As is in back yard...About 12 years ago when we moved in here I visualized our back yard as lush, green, and full of wonderful plants and flowers. What can I say, it's @ 1 % done. "Life happens while you're making other plans."
I've got some GREAT Hostas in my bright shade out back, I love those things. Columbines as well. Note: they seem to grow more happily from seed than from transplanting, and they seem to enjoy self-sowing into their neighbors' pots. :)
... that which I spend being thankful for the blessing of the job that I have. (or, is that 'time'?) ;) It's also (Thyme, that is) one of my rescues in my Big Front Bed, along with the Spearmint and Dahlias and Paeonies. (and Brunera, and Hellebores and...) ;)
I love going to work armed with baggies... Deadheading With A Purpose! =)
I have heard that coffee trees make lovely bonsais, and we used to carry bonsai tea trees at work as well.
Helen, I work at a nursery/garden center here in Southern MD. Between that and DG, I have learned SOOOO much, and my gardening passion just keeps growing! =)
Heeheeheee, R'uh R'oh! I think someone (or 2) has their word games mixed up! LOL!!!!!!
Now let's see... a gardening/botany word associated with dander...
... Yes, it's a stretch, I know. Dander, being the shed dead skin cells from animals (and I hear that deer have a MAJOR issue with it at certain times of year) --and deer tend to be nuisance animals in gardens. There, that's my connection! =)
