Thanks, Brad.

May 10, 2007

Journal, Lauren

Some people have a green thumb, but we have a slave friend who does our gardening for us!  Brad is the one who makes our outsides look like somebody gives a rip.  Personally, I think it would be really, really funny to fill a garden with fake plants.   Brad knows the wiser path, though.  Thanks, The Gardener!

COlumbines, the state flower of Colorado.

Handy, since I'm from Colorado.

I don't know what these are, but they're pretty.

    Do you loan Brad out??? We are waiting for Calvary’s plant sale to buy our plants. Our 20 hummers just keep eating out of the feeder. Guess they can’t find any flowers.


  2. Brad Said on:

    I had no idea you had different color columbines! Cool!

    The other thing is a geranium. It’s a grandma kind of plant. We are getting along in years, you know… back problems, heart problems, and such.

      I didn’t even know there were different colored Columbines!
      By the way, Brad, have you decided what will go in our “Gardener’s Nemesis Bed” (all shade, all day, north side of our neighbor’s garage…it’s a terrible place for life)?

    Can we start a gardener foreign exchange program? We send you Brad and you send us ????

    (that’s a geranium? It doesn’t look like the geranium’s at my Home Depot …)


    • karla Said on:

      Aren’t those Martha Washington geraniums? Yes, they look much nicer than the tradional ones.


      • Peggy Said on:

        Thank you Karla! I’ll look for the Martha’s.
        Hey, can you come to Balto. for a little gardening support?


        • karla Said on:

          Sure! I’m on my way! But I have to warn you, I’m best with African Violets in sucker pots -- water them and ignore for 2 weeks.


      • Lauren Said on:

        How’d you know that, Karla? Do you have Brad’s superpowers?


        • karla Said on:

          Nah, we have a great nursery out here that Arron and I love, love, love to wander through. I’m always drawn to the MWGs, but I’ve only gotten them once. They were in hanging baskets on the front stoop, and the squirrels somehow ran through them and trampled them down to little nubbins. It was sad. I think that was the same summer they dug my shamrock bulbs out of the pot, but that’s a whole other story for another day.

    PS Your’s is much nicer!
