Confessions of A Reluctant Texas Gardener April 23, 2011

Ok, here’s the deal.  I buy things I like, and I stick em in the ground, and I hope for the best.

Sometimes it works out.  Sometimes not so much.

There is no plan.  There is only hope, and random experience.

Very nice Sago. Good luck. The one I planted two years ago survived the previous winter, but not this past winter.

But I love these and already have purchased two more… but this time they are in pots.

Nice palm, Dave. A Florida palmetto might work too. They survive the colder winters of Jacksonville, Fl without too much trauma.

I killed three Sagos.

4. Cathy - April 23, 2011

Dave, is that Purple Diamond Loropetalum growing up behind your new sago?

5. harrison - April 23, 2011

I killed three Sagos.

Just to watch ’em die…

Just to watch ’em die, Lips?

How did you kill them, Lipstick?

*looks at her massive feet*

You be nice to her; She’s a killa.

>> Dave, is that Purple Diamond Loropetalum growing up behind your new sago?

Yup. I love those, they’re the major plants around the pool in that retaining wall.

I can see purple. So I dig it. (not sure why I can see purp but can’t see red… hmm..maybe I see it differently than y’all do, but still, it’s purty to me)

Happy Easter everyone.

We are water logged here in Ohio, but my lily of the valley, iris, lilac, and azalea are still blooming. You might like the lilac Dave, they are a light purple. Smell heavenly.

Purple is the color of kings. If they gots a chicken bone stuck in their throat.

13. kevl - April 24, 2011

The altar at church was covered in purples and pinks: hyacinth, hydrangea, orchids, tulips, all set off by the majestic white lilies.
Such a beautiful sight after the desert of Lent and the darkness of Good Friday. He is risen.

14. daveintexas - April 24, 2011

I need more flowers around here, but flowers get nervous when I approach, I think. I don’t know it, I just sense some sort of “tension”.

15. Michael - April 24, 2011

He is risen.

He is risen indeed!

Happy Easter Monday, internet weirdos.

The only plants I’ve ever managed to keep alive are cactus plants. It used to be, I would kill them, too, with over-watering. But once I got fully in touch with my inner slacker, they began to thrive. I once forgot to water them for 5 months. I don’t think they missed me.
