Why am I goo goo eyed for this one ? .. I am becoming a bit of a lazy gardener .. old age .. old aches and pains .. old everything makes me think twice about upkeep to plants now .. Not to say I won't go out of my way for a beauty that has me in its grip. But who is to say an easy care plant can't be beautiful too ?
I am not a professional and I try never to be one ! .. unless there is "fudge" on the table .. OK .. chocolate too then. My pictures are a gamble even on the best of days .. these ones aren't so bad and I think they show case the grace and simplistic beauty of this plant.
Add to the mix of variables that this one can take the heat .. take the dry conditions (meaning I have yet again not watered the garden .. oops .. they said it was going to rain, I swear !) plus you can cut it back quite severely and it will smile at you again with its blooms : ) heaven knows we can use all the smiles possible in our gardens right ?
There is something about that cool blue and gray green that is calming .. soothing almost .. no, I haven't been in the liquor cabinet again !!
Now don't you feel just a wee bit better after seeing this beautiful "cat" in an almost natural habitat ? ... if not , we can talk fudge recipes later on .. OK ???
P.S. Do you think I said "again" too many times ? ................... again ????
