OH, THOSE MAY FLOWERS
It’s hard to type. Even my fingers ache.
We’ve had April showers this year, but they didn’t bring May flowers . . . at least not to my house. So I was left with buying blooms and planting them myself.
All day I carried, I dug, I bent. Closest thing to exercise I’ve had in who knows when.
I can’t claim to have done a perfect job, but I’m happy with the results. Think how proud I’d be if I’d raised them from seeds!
Now I just have to water and fertilize as needed. Geraniums, snapdragons, sunpatiens (a new sun-friendly version of impatiens) in a variety of colors are all now officially planted in my front yard, where they’ll get afternoon sun.
Let’s hope they live long enough to make it all worthwhile.
If I can still move, next week I hit the backyard, which I’ll have to fill with flowers that can thrive with morning-only sun.
Let’s hope I live to tell about it.
