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 !
I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy; for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
"NOW THANKS BE UNTO GOD, WHICH ALWAYS CAUSETH US TO TRIUMPH IN CHRIST !"
The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear?The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, my enemies and foes, they stumbled and fell. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear....Psalm 27 1-3
Psalm 31: 7, 8
And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; thou hast set my feet in a large room.
