Very happy gardener !!

“Yours truly” gets more curses than compliments regarding her garden!! When someone visits me, and admires my garden, I am ecstatically happy!! Former CARE employees came for a several-day visit, and smothered me with love and compliments about my beautiful flowering plants. smiley-face-two-smiley-facesMary admired the Cape Honeysuckle and I said “Would you like one?” Yes, she would like one. She liked the Mexican Petunia. “Would you like one?” Masmiley-face-thank-you-3ry also liked the Hummingbird Trumpet Vine, and Turk’s Cap, so I gladly presented those also. The idea of a Texas Lilac thrilled Mary but I do not have any “starter plants” (yet). I was able to give her Texas Lilac seeds. Mary and Tom made my day!!   🙂   🙂   🙂
