It is that time of year when gardeners are becoming obsessed with any connection to plants and gardening .. so much so, that this non indoor gardener has crumbled and invested in an LED desk grow light.
I have been a serial killer of African violets, but this time may be different due to the loving and caring grow light .. right ?
Other brain storming I have had .. well , lack of impulse control is more like it.
On-line plant purchases .. it always starts out rather innocent but then ? it becomes almost manic.
Excuse # 1 .. I loved my white tiger lily "Sweet Surrender" from the past two years .. it seemed LONELY.
Excuse # 2 .. Another lonely lily problem .. Roselily Corrolla
Yes ... I suffer from lily beetle angst .. but I am ready to battle for the sake of these beautiful lilies.
Thus the picture of another white lily from the garden, surrounded with greenery that screams the need of white lilies.
To illustrate that I am not totally lily mad .. I have had other white plants in the garden.
I have invested in "Swans in Flight" Siberian iris.
I just happened to run across it while "consuming" (the only way to describe what I do to catalogs) the inventory for Gardens Plus.
The ironic bonus is exactly that .. a bonus from Botanus (lily order) .. they give you a hosta root.
The hosta name is "So Sweet", which has (wait for it) sparkling, white flowers.
By the time all my ordering shows up at the door .. I will be overwhelmed and groaning about how I went over board .. meanwhile a gal can dream .. right ?
Why make this year different from any other, in any case
