Code for "what else have I bought to add to the garden" ?
This purchase was also nudged by Garden PA, so some of the blame can land on his shoulders, right ?
And ... why is it Costco that instigates these episodes ?
On with the details .. it is only one package .. but it has a 16 count of some pretty eye catching bulbs.
Landini is a very dark unscented (thankfully less interest to lily beetles ?) lily that will truly set off a contrast to lighter lilies .. what can I say ? I couldn't help myself and Garden PA made me do it.
Here comes the great part aside from the lily itself ... the price for 16 of these beauties was $14.95
When I looked else where .. say Vesey .. you only got 3 bulbs for the same price ! Crazy right ?
So .. SCORE on that deal !
Once again .. the beauty
Adiantum pedatum aka Maiden Hair fern .. just such a lovely delicate looking fern that offsets all the other plants next to them. Not my picture though .. just to give you an idea.
Curtain Call Deep Rose" intrigued me because I was such a fan of Pamina.
Hopefully these will be more hardy and over winter better than Pamina did for me.
Niveum" .. this year I ordered three.
Again .. not my picture .. of course I can't find mine at the moment .. but there you go, an idea of it.
Those tiny white bells win me over every time !
Witch hazel aka Hamamelis virginiana ... it can be a shrub or trained as a small tree.
I am all in for the tree version even though what I am buying is literally going to be a "stick"
I can deal with that .. I want to watch it grow like I did my Chinese Fringe tree which is a beauty.
So ? what does witch hazel look like ? I hope one day just like this !
Plus .. the blooming in the Fall is such a bonus ... for me and the birds ?
I have been struggling with whether to disclose personal information but I also wonder if it may help other gardeners who struggle with similar disadvantages.
I have been dealing with severe health issues for many years .. auto-immune conditions that can be deadly for me .. let alone the exhaustion and weakness that can make your life pretty miserable.
I seem to be a rolling ball of moss that keeps collecting them still.
This Autumn, rhuematoid and osteo arthritis, along with Raynaud's were diagnosed.
It hit me pretty hard .. it is difficult not to become depressed when dealing with multiple conditions like these ..
BUT ... my plan (I started last January, 2019, before I knew about this) was to top up with pro-biotics, vitamin D, and omega oils, plus Yin /Hatha yoga.
I am laying it on the line, for who ever else is suffering out there, that this regime I have been doing for over 14 months (with many ups and downs included) has made an unbelievable change in my life.
You too CAN CHANGE your body with your own plan that you create for yourself ..
The caveat is that you have to have patience, and perseverance to let it actually work.
This is what helped me when I thought I was past being able to change.
Your plan could be completely different .. what ever it takes to help you feel better .. just do it !
And now .. for a look at my new yoga mat (I don't only buy plants !)
