Surprise..



I surprised myself with a lily and geranium. I bought these potted plants in for the winter and couldn't believe they lived..So they are now out on the deck (needs a coat of paint) and they are blooming..I guess all hope is not lost for me..Usually, I forget to water them and they never make it..Fortunately, the lily doesn't need water in the winter.

This year even the blueberry bushes are doing well..Why? I made sure I kept away from them with my weed whacker..I hit them before and put both bushes in shock.
Now you know why most of my pictures of flowers are wild, nothing will hurt them.



Till next time, keep looking up..

Hey Harriet said...

These are lovely. I'm not much of a gardener so I'm always super excited if any of my plants even survive. Let alone bloom. I'd love to see a photo of you in action with your weed whacker! :)
