Yesterday I was outside for a bit surveying the front yard to see what needed to be done. I sware that if anything ever happened to me David would be totally lost. I rarely go outside because it is hard to get up and down the steps to the house. So I braved the stairs and wanted to see how the plants were doing in the garden.
My gardenias need fertilizing bad. The leaves are a pitiful yellow and there are no white flower buds to be seen. The roses are all in bloom, but they need to be pruned. They have grown out of control. My petunias, geraniums, astilbe, lewisia, primroses,and my flowering begonias are all dead. I almost broke down and cried. So this weekend I will have to grab David and have him dig up the dead things and salvage what I can from the garden and prune the roses back to a decent height. I think I'll just stick to the roses in the garden. I'll have to buy new flowers and just keep them in pots on the porch so I can take good care of them.
