Robbie, there's no secret to gardening. All it takes is some fertilizer, water, sun, and a little bit o luv.

Patrick - tell that to all the houseplants I've sent to live with Jesus.

My next step: elaborate squirrel traps.

My suggestion: 8 x 10 glossies.

Two cautions:

1) Keep them turned AWAY from the flowers (and preferably towards open space where the paint on cars won't blister.

2) They work on humans, too, so make sure to wear a welder's helmet when installing. Save some for PETA, Cindy Sheehan Fan Club members, and the occasional wandering door-to-door evangelist.


They are Tulips!

It takes EFFORT to kill tulips in a warmish environment. All you have to do to NOT grow tulips, is salt the ground, dig up the dirt, and deny them water.

Tulips are a cake walk.

But, congrats on the pretty flowers, kinda. . . . a stereotype, that you grew pinks.


Wait, they are white and red?

You need to work on your focus.

and don't worry about the stereotype.

I'm of the malign neglect school myself - great bloody banks of lavendar (with enough room for the cat to crap), and when they get scrubby I say it's the 'English cottage garden' look.


Pinto, there ar yellows in there too, ya know.


Pinto.... First you come out as a soccer player. Then you start shelling out gardening tips.

Again... we're here if you want to talk. :)


I killed a cactus once. true story. i have a black thumb.




I've grown vegetables before, but for some reason I always massacre flowers. So I started simple. Perhaps this success will give me the confidence to be more adventurous this year. Who knows where it could lead!

I also planted a few trees, redbuds, pears, etc. However, I've never actually killed a tree, so I'm less worried on their account.

I planted two bunches of tulips - the white ones pictured are around a lampost, and that second group actually consists of reds and yellows in an old fountain I filled with dirt. Maybe I'll grab another pic when they're in full bloom.
