I am still sort of in shock that I haven’t killed everything that I have planted so far this year. That is how bad I am at gardening. When I refer to my “Black Thumb” to family members I always get the same response…. “You do know you have to keep watering everything!” I do know, but I do tend to forget… over and over again until they are just brown shriveled up remnants of what I planted.
I am starting to wonder if it’s just the “help!” This is the effort I get from my gardening helpers! Maybe they think they are just out there to guard the wheel barrow or something????
With the luck I have had so far this year, I decided to push my luck again lol. Again, when Dillon and I were at Walmart yesterday, I was looking for tomato cages and we came across a big display of 50% off plants. I sort of felt sorry for them so I bought two. Only two! I don’t know what I was thinking but I did it. I bought a yellow rose plant and a little lavender tree to add to my gardens!
Today I replanted them where I wanted them. First, here is my yellow rose plant. Yellow roses are my absolute favourite colour of all roses!
I decided to use a container for the little lavender tree so I could have it on the back deck. I don’t know how true it is but I recall reading somewhere that mosquitos don’t like the smell of lavender, so it was worth trying! Fingers crossed!
While I was out there I couldn’t help but stop and admire the Tiger Lilies. They are perfect plants for me. Absolutely no maintenance and they look beautiful every year!
I decided to take a few pictures of them to add to this post!
Here are the Tiger Lilies that I transplanted a few years ago to the “Tractor” garden! They are almost 4 feet tall!
And these are just a couple of random close up pictures I took of the Tiger Lilies in the back yard.
