I am dying, dying, DYING, to be out at the garden centres happily browsing through the aisles, reading all the nice little tags on the perrenials and annuals, and buying little plants to put in my window boxes, pots and my gardens. It's making me crazy.
|coreopsis, blanket flower, begonias|
And my car is on the fritz.
|rose of sharon|
And the kids and The Man are out for the day.
But I love gardening now! Waaa! I FREAKING LOVE IT! I want to have my hands in the soft, cool dirt.
|pink lilies! What a find!|
And I was looking up good ground cover to plant at the base of an Amur Privet hedge for my brother, and stumbled upon this website about "steppable" ground covers--you know; they're all soft and pretty and you can walk on them sometimes? And some of them even release yummy nummy scents if you step on them, like "Corsica Mint." And then my brain exploded a little bit, because suddenly I imagined filling in shady spots in my back yard with lovely, woodsy, dainty steppable ground covers like Creeping Thyme...
...koff, koff, koff!!!!!
|blue morning glory...looking for white this year...|
And I am going crazy, because I am a FLOWERAHOLIC!!!
Do you know what really set me off recently? ALAINA'S POST. Alaina (Arbor House Lane), did a post with some pics of her garden, and how it will look in a few weeks with all her gorgeous flowers. She has all these beautiful, beautiful bushes covered in little white flowers. And I just learned that they're called "Bridal Wreath Spirea." And then I lost my mind.
Ah well. I'll just have to be patient. I guess I'll just go take another look at the freaking avocado pits I've been hovering in water for FREAKING AGES NOW. When I had guacamole a while back, I careful cut the avocados open so as not to damage the pits so I can grow my own avocado tree and... okay, okay, you're not a plant nut like me. But oh how sick I am of having to stop and look at those two stupid pits for any new signs of change. JUST SPLIT THE F*CK OPEN ALREADY so I can stop thinking about you!!!
I'm also growing little poppy seedlings in a grow starter peet pellet tray thingy. Sigh!
Guess I'll go pull some weeds.
