Garden e-Diary 5.14.15

FINALLY, I’m getting back to the Goddess Garden saga. It’s been a bit of a wild ride here in Manatee County, but more about that later.

When I got back to town in January, I discovered that one of the oleanders in the front beds had died.

Upon examination, I discovered two empty bottles of marine transmission fluid beside the dead plant. I assumed that the neighborhood criminals had killed it and left me a message so that I would be sure to know that they did it on purpose. It was winter. I left the plant as it was, hoping that in the spring it would send up new shoots from the roots. It didn’t.

The universe has sent me an opportunity to redesign the front beds. Hopefully the beautiful bougainvillea in between the oleanders will be left alone and I can come up with a creative solution for the octagons on each side of it.

As usual, the weeds have thrived while I was gone, despite a rather severe drought. I have been busy trying to get things back under control, which is why you haven’t heard from me until now.

Stay tuned, more updates, including Faerie Encounters™ coming soon.
