I am still having trouble adjusting to my lack of ability to grow a yard full of flowers here. I look back at my flowers from my yard in Oklahoma and wish that I could get those results now.
Don't get me wrong......the area I live in is SO BEAUTIFUL. The trees and foliage are SO LUSH. But this trailer was placed on a hill and apparently the yard is based on rock and 'chirt' (do you know what that is.......it's a term that I grew up with), and I can't afford to supplement my flower beds with potting or top soil.
I brought home LOTS of daisies and have planted them and golden flowers that are similar, along my back fenceline. These are now dying out after blooming all of their buds, but hopefully they will return next year and beyond.
You can also see more of the moss rose seedlings in this pot.
Anyway, that's my gardening news for now. I'll try to get photos of the blooming zinnias this weekend, Lord willing !
" Do you not know?
Have you not heard???
The LORD is the everlasting GOD,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and His understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary,
and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:28-31
"The Sovereign LORD has given me an instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary.
He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being taught." Isaish 50:4
