    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.

    Sword Ferns and Fiddle Heads

    Today I cut back some Sword ferns and was surprised to see that the Fiddle heads were coming up already. You can eat the Fiddle heads they have a mild nutty taste. (but you can only eat a few from each plant because they eventually turn into the new leafs) Also I...

    Flowers of Demented Dreamgarden

    Here are a few of my hollyhocks. They are special to my heart. Each morning I go out with my cup of coffee and greet the blooms of the new day. I photograph and love them. Pluck bugs off them. Sniff and smell them. Plant hundreds of them. One for me and one for the snails and...

    I'm a guy, but I love when people give me compliments. I rarely get them so when a girl says I'm cute or good looking, I'm automatically in a better mood.
