Remember that old slogan, “There’s always room for jello.”? Guess it’s a good one if the slogan is still around rattling around in my memory.
Anyway, my gardening philosophy is that there’s always room for another plant.
Small bell like flowers on the twining vine is growing on an old metal tower. Otherwise, I probably would not have seen them. They are surprisingly cold hardy.
But there have been lots of snakes around this year. So my husband mowed around the wildflowers and cut down the grass closest to the yard to discourage snakes from invading the yard. Hopefully that will work. Anyway, it will make them more noticeable if they don’t respect our space. Such a pipe dream!
This annual Superbells Pomegrante Punch (Calibrachoa) provides some bright color, which I seem to be addicted to. I tend to not buy annuals because they are so short lived, but all the box stores entice me with their outside displays.
“Our culture has accepted two huge lies. The first is that if you disagree with someone’s lifestyle, you must fear or hate them. The second is that to love someone means you agree with everything they believe or do. Both are nonsense. You don’t have to compromise convictions to be compassionate.” Rick Warren
