Plants Will Grow... Something I Seem to Forget
Well, you knew I couldn't resist for too long. I bought some plants today, including this beautiful, delicate-looking little thing. I love it.
And, amazingly enough, it's already in the ground - not just sitting in a cardboard box on the porch where things sometimes remain for a day or two until I get them planted.
I bought a few things today - just a few.
I'm trying very hard to not overplant this year - like I do every year.
I seem to forget that plants grow, and I crowd them all in, too close together.
But, today I resisted.
See how there's lots of empty space between the plants. I'm on the right track.
However, this will fail.
And this is why...
Yes, I know I'm pathetic. You need not point it out.

You and me both, Patsy! I always have good intentions. Does that count?!
And what a beautiful metaphor for life :-)
Kim... I think it's something about needing to see bright, beautiful, pretty new things in the ground. Maybe I'm still surprised that I can grow anything - that it will get bigger. It seems growing up on a farm would have prepared me for this eventuality, but apparently I'm a slow learner!
Oh Fleur... what a lovely sentiment... no wonder you're a writer! Thanks for that - you've given me something wonderful to ponder today!
