No Thank You’s

Our lone poppy.

This poppy just opened up this morning.  It came from a lady down the street and around the corner.  That is one of the best things about gardening… gardeners always want to share their plants.  Although, I did find out that it is bad luck to say ‘Thank you’ when someone gives you a plant.  She said that if you say ‘Thank you’ then the plant will die.  So in the interest of saving the plant… Betty, thanks for the dirt!

Dig it!

    I love the pic of your lone poppy! My mother and I have been trying for years to get poppies to grow in our gardens without much success. But this year, one plant finally survived the winter and it has two buds! We are anxiously waiting for them to open…we need some sun!

    I’m so glad I peeked at your blog …
    The picture of the poppy brought back memories of the flower garden I had at our old house.
    I really need to plant some in my current flower garden …
    I love these flowers :-)

    Just have a question. I have angelleaf winged begonias which I set out in the spring and take in the house in the fall to overwinter and take cuttings off. They become sticky, which I assume are bugs. Have tried several things to no avail. The plants look great and are flowering. What could take care of the bugs without harming the plants and where does one find it.

    Thank You
    Sue

    Sue, I will be devoting my next post to your question about your begonias, but the quick answer may be some Neem oil or insecticidal soap. We made some insecticidal soap for our outdoor asters with Dawn and water. I don’t remember the concentration, but I will find out before the next post!
