As the month drags on I’m longing more and more for Spring and Summer to hurry up and get here.
My petunia’s last year were just lovely. I often grow red and purple ones because the birds like them best. Particularly Hummingbirds (red petunias) which I’m trying to entice into my yard each summer. I do however purchase or grow a large number of white flowers as well because they accent the colored flowers and in the dark of the garden you can still see white flowers.
As many of you who have read this site for a while, or my gardening blog know, I do seem to enjoy gardening or being in my garden at night. Evening dinners or get together’s on the patio, watering the flower beds and lawn at night so my noisy stalker elderly neighbor doesn’t see me and slow me down … heck I’ve even been known to pull out a spot light and do some planting at 11 pm. So yes, my garden is to be enjoyed and worked in as much during the day as at night and the white flowers sure light up the place in the evening.
What can I say. I’m either a crazy or an extreme gardener. Take your pick.
