The Moss Rose and Phlox that Chloe and I planted last week are growing nicely. A few weeks ago we bought some lemons with the intention of growing a lemon tree. After a doing a little research it seemed easy enough so we planted a seed, watered, and waited. And then...nothing. It was a little disappointing for both of us because, darn it, I really wanted a lemon tree! Actually, I still do and will probably order either dwarf seeds or an actual dwarf tree. Ooh, and while I was researching all of that I found this! I've seen a few Banana Trees here and in AL and wondered how they kept them alive; and now I know.
So, back to the flowers. You'd think with all of this plant talk that I'd just uncovered a dormant green thumb. Well, I don't know about that but I do want to do some constructive, learning type things with with Chloe during the day. And hey, seeds and dirt are really cheap. So thankfully, I chose two hardy, drought resistant types of plants. It will be at least two more months before we get any flowers and at some point I'm supposed to divide them. Divide them? Ugh! They're drought resistant but are they Amy resistant? Hopefully they are. But even if not Chloe is still excited that they sprouted. I guess that's progress.
