Do you have trouble getting plants and flowers to live?
Perhaps you need a sign – to order them to live.
Actually, I know this sign is for people, not the flowers. It’s a reminder for us to really live, not just to consume oxygen and exist. Live.
I laugh whenever I walk by this garden sign, because PAM (Painter Artist Mom) asked during one of her visits if that sign was helping my plants. She knows I’m not always successful with growing things, and that I need a sign to order the flowers to live.
Don’t we need things that make us laugh? God made us to enjoy humor. I do. Do you?
And, He made us to enjoy flowers. I do. Do you?
The Nikko hydrangea is a beautiful deep blue when growing in acidic soil. It’s pink when growing in alkaline soil. As you can see, the hydrangea on the left got a little sulfur thrown under it when I fed the camellia, making the soil more acidic there. We live in the alkaline belt.
The hydrangea looks rather confused, but I love the variation in bloom color. I gather cuttings of all shades to enjoy inside the house.
If you had to choose between pink or blue blooms, which would you pick? I’m so glad I don’t have to pick. Both is a good answer, right?
The lamb’s ear patch needs thinning again. I do it every year.
But, at least it’s providing blooms. When I’m barefoot, the fuzzy leaves are so soft under my feet!
The Black-eyed Susans are finally starting to bloom.
By next week we should have a gazillian of them. They look so happy. And, I don’t think they need a garden sign.
A sign ordering them to live. God takes care of that, y’all.
Thank you for visiting! ~ Just a note to remind you to follow me through email, Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, Google+ or Hometalk. Also, I’d love it if you shared Curtain Queen with all your sweet friends. Thanks, y’all.
