How Do You Feel About Flowers?
As a writer, I need things to do that don’t require sitting in front of a computer. I knit. I quilt a little. I love to play in the garden. But Good Golly Miss Molly, it’s hard to maintain flowers in Texas. It involves so much watering. At first it’s every other day. Then it’s every day. Then it’s twice a day for the rest of the summer. I’m not whining, mind you, I’m just rethinking this flower thing.
I decided to give my flower pots a rest this year. Of course, that means the weather has changed and it is now raining every day. Ha! I’m not falling for that. Give it a couple weeks. I know Texas! It’ll be 100 and dry.
My sister gave me a beautiful potted begonia for my birthday, so that will be my ONE PLANT for the year. Do I stop and look longingly at all the bedding plants at Walmart? I do! And then there are the wildflowers like those in the picture above. These are Indiana Blankets at our little piece of land out in the country. Aren’t they beautiful?
So what about you? Do you “do” the flower thing or not?
