I returned to Tuysonvien this morning, after being back down to our main residence for ten days. My flowers have certainly know how to take care of themselves while I was away.
Back in June, I worked some sand into the flower beds and added some organic fertilizer. As a result, the dwarf marigold that I planted there grew much taller than they would normally do.
You see, I only have very common plants in my garden because I am not here 24/7 to take care of them. I either rely on my neighbor to water them for me or leave them to nature.
Nevertheless, I'm so happy with these plants because not only they are easy, they self-seed abundantly so I'm never without seedlings for planting. Year round, I have cosmos, marigold, daylily, impatiens, coleus... to provide color for my garden.
