Left Behind

When we moved from our dumpy old house in CA we were so busy trying to get out on time that we weren’t able to bring my bulbs with me. <tears>

So I need to go get myself a potted plant when I move to AR so that I can keep taking care of something and posting on this blog. I feel lame, because I haven’t been gardening, which is by far one of my very favorite things to do.

Also, I left my poinsettia behind in CA because I just didn’t have the heart to move it to UT and then to AR… I just don’t think it would have made the road trip.

So here is an ode to my beautiful plants, and to starting over again…

Oh sweet flora,

I tended you with a gentle hand

I watched you press upward

Through the dirt and sand

Oh beautiful green leaves

and sweet smelling flowers

I cared for you carefully

and tended for hours

Oh, sweet flora,

How short was our time

But there is always another day

Another garden

Where the sun will still shine.

Okay, now that I’m done being corny, I probably won’t post again until I get that potted plant sometime in May. Maybe if I help my in laws with their landscaping before we leave I’ll take pictures and post anything I learn about sodding or planting trees.
