    Sword Ferns and Fiddle Heads

    Earth Laughs In Flowers

    I recently moved into a new home(renting) and there were dreary little stunted plants that didn't grow or bloom or anything. I tried to resist pulling them up but they did not seem to have any redeeming qualities. When I pulled them they had hardly even put any roots down.  ...

    I Am Trying

    This Spring I planted two rose bushes.  I think they are called Queen Elizabeths.  I got a couple of blooms this year.  I hope it gets better next year. That is all of my garden.  I will plant some more next year.
