I also got some more Caladiums and some Marigolds! These are the first Marigolds I have bought this summer, though I'm fond of the flower and usually have some growing in my garden! All of these flowers are for the back - along the walkway we are working on.
Yesterday I got another music package from my friend in Reno.....More Pink Floyd and some others!
I haven't had a chance to get into Pink Floyd yet, but will soon. Thanks, Bonnie!
I had hoped to play them tonight but my headache is gonna force me to bed with a sleep aid soon!
This day didn't turn out as I hoped...I envisioned getting my roses planted this afternoon... I guess I wasn't thinking how a shopping trip just wipes me out, these days! I'm wasted for the rest of the day! Especially so, this day! Oh well, I just have to roll with the punches- just do the best I can! There's tomorrow!
This last pic is of Honeysuckle-and old fashioned- very fragrant -roses which I have growing at our front entrance! (a courtyard entrance) The Honeysuckle is not a spectacular flower in the way it looks- but-Oh-the smell is heavenly- especially growing next to the roses there. (Honeysuckle is a wild vine type plant-and like most wild plants it can get out of hand...but I love having it!)
Usually the last thing I do before going to bed at night is to walk out into the front garden...The mingled Rose and Honeysuckle fragrance is 'out of this world!'
Sometimes I stand for awhile, just gazing up into the star-studded sky and taking in the sweet smells of the flowers!
~~~This is a little poem I wrote a long time ago- about my flowers~~~
How Will My Garden Grow?
How will my garden grow?
…Marigolds marching in a row!
Zinnias in sunshiny places!
Petunias to fill the odd spaces!
Gardenias and Queen Anne’s Lace,
adding their beauty and grace.
Geraniums and Ivy, in pots,
and sky blue Forget-Me-Nots.
The Mums will be overflowing,
from pots, in which they are growing.
The sweet Seven Sisters will bloom,
adding their special perfume.
Along the fence row there will be
red roses, rambling fragrant and free!
The Peace Rose- ever the rage-
will, naturally, take center stage!
