One of the prompts for Mama Kat’s Writer’s Workshop this week is:
1. Write a list of your top Spring must-haves.
And, as usual, my must-haves for spring all involve plants. I’ll limit the list here to five:
1.) Mexican petunia, sweet potato vine and “whatever-that-little-vine-is-with-the-tiny-yellow-flowers”.
2.) My beloved Black-eyed Susan vine:
…which, by the way, I like so much, I’ll probably have it in more than one place in the yard.
4.) This gorgeous plant with tiny red flowers. (Sorry, I can’t recall the name.)
5.) And, finally, I’m going to, once again, try to grow nasturtiums. My mom planted them in window boxes, and I remember how pretty they were. My only attempt was in 2013, and shortly after I took this photo, this one died. But a friend has offered to give me pointers, so I’m trying again, hopefully with more success this time.
So, if you’ll excuse me, I’m commandeering Motor Man’s pick-up this morning and I’m off to the nursery.
