I‘m happy to make an update on my gardening efforts and state that I haven’t killed anything yet! This is incredible news – seeing as how I have a reputation that is hard to live down within my immediate family. Sheesh! A girl gets lazy with her garden for ONE SEASON – – things croak off – – and the family will never let me forget it (read: last year I was too busy to tend to my garden and started it off with really good intentions – – but sadly most things died).
This year, even with the crappy weather we’re having, I’m happy to report that so far:
My Hydrangeas are doing well:
The Clemetis that I planted at the base of one of the trees is climbing and happy:
My various different roses are doing wonderfully:
And even….EVEN… my Rhododendron is beginning to bloom (YAY!):
This is all very good and encourging news and I am WELL on my way to losing the reputation of “Garden Slayer”.
