  •  Happy Anniversary! I got the nerve & knowhow (10+ / 0-)

    to start planting flowers from y'all :)   Thank you, thank you, thank you.  

    I've never had luck with houseplants - I've killed cactus, ferchrissake - so why bother with anything outdoors?   I live on a thick, nasty blend of heavy clay+rock, which was also discouraging.  After lurking here for a year or so I was at an evil big box store & saw some daylilies marked down to$1.75 and picked up five of them that were tagged with a picture of a pretty,soft peach-colored blossom.
    To my complete surprise, they survived - and thrived.  Now all my spare time and $$s are spent in the garden, in a garden center, or in the garden aisle of the town library.
    If my husband complains, I ask if he'd rather I hung out in bars picking up strange men as a hobby.   I think he's starting to appreciate flowers.

    Comfort the afflicted. Afflict the comfortable.
