Some Grow Fast; Others Slow...


The white mussaenda in the potager garden is
getting too pretty not to stare at


don't you just love big, bunchy, fluffy flowers that just captivate your vision?


it's such lovely creations of God...
that make me impatient for my new camera
(a good friend of ours is bringing it with him in the near future)


we also have a coral pink one...
but, I know there is a mussaenda with pale pink flowers...
and why is it I only ever see one in someone else's garden...
and never in a nursery?

if I could get up the gumption to ask...
"I covet your pale pink mussaenda...would you mind cutting off a branch...
so I can stick it in my garden and hope it grows?"

if I ever see a pale pink mussaenda at the nursery... 
it's coming home to my garden


I am thankful God has seen to bless me with the plants we have

the white mussaenda in the potager went from this in below photo


to this in the next photo...
it only took 2 months for that to happen


now...
concerning my lemon balm planted alongside the rain barrel...
my husband did me a big favor and put a little fencing around the plants


my dogs had developed the habit of brushing along the plants...
and putting their noses inside them...
not what I like for my edible herbs

hopefully, this will solve the situation and keep their nosy noses out of my balm bushes


and then...there are the pineapples

we have pineapples growing all over the farm...
and one thing I have learned from watching them...
is not to watch them

they only grow slower that way


I do hope the Lord may bless your day, or night.

  3. I could post pics of plants and tiny flowers every day but it would detract from my tough guy image!
