I want to garden!

Sunday, October 18, 2009

Okay, so I've weeded. And watered the outdoor plants. And watered the porch plants.

My candlestick plants are getting nice and big, and need to go into the ground. As do the lantanas. All purchased for the butterfly garden I've been establishing.

and lantana:

But the landlord's maintenance guy was putting in a walkway for downstairs lady, and tore up the area I was going to use for the butterfly garden. And bought bags and bags of concrete, which he never used, and left out in the rain. Yup, now we have a stack of bags of concrete, which are solid instead of powdered.

So I don't have the space for the garden. It's under bags of concrete, or waiting for someone to put in the walkway. I don't want to put in my plants, only to have them be removed when someone finally finishes the walk.

Grrrrrrrrrrrr. Maybe I should pull out some of the weeds by the driveway and plant there.

    I wish I could garden year around. It is so fun and relaxing.

    Awww! That's too bad! I hope your landlord helps you find a solution. Gardening is a passion that should not be neglected!

    Landlord is quite aware of the situation, they live upstairs. He just takes a while to get things accomplished. (And he's French, not on island time!)

I'll talk to him when I see him.

The plants want to stretch their roots!

  Ask the land lord what is up. Plus, surely she does not want to pay for improperly used concrete :-)
