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!
