Evelyn's Greenhouse Adventures

Hello, Darlings

After the misadventures of my first patch of seeding that I planted in July, and all of which I tossed because of contamination, I planted more today. I love my greens and I am no novice with planting and harvesting them. In fact, Stanley and I ate some that I planted last year and that was frozen because I had lots of them leftover.

Here are the new seed pots bathing in the light of the greenhouse.

As for flowers, I planted some of the Jacob Ladder seeds that I after having to place three orders. The first order never arrived. The second-order I canceled because they would have arrived to last in the season. So I am hoping that three times is the charm and that I will have some actual white Jacob Ladder flowers if not later this year than in the coming years as these seeds are perennials.

Evelyn’s DIY ‘Mary Garden’ Follow-up 5: Jesus with Children

Hello, Darlings

Besides writing hair care tips about coping with front lace wigs, I set out my newest statue. As you can see, it is a statue of Jesus with children. Regardless, of what anyone thinks, I love kids. My past work with kids and several of my web sites are proof of that.

Nevertheless, because this statue is lighter than I expected, I glued it two one of the edging stones, which is as close to the color of the statue as possible. I then placed it on top of one at the bottom and added more around the sides and the rear of the statue to create a mountain effect. The ivy vines are not real.  I know its cheating but I wanted to hide the open spaces between the placements of the stones. The tall flowers planted in the circle are lavender colored Ruellias and a red Penta shrub.

I transplanted them into the circle the other day, so they should all return to bloom soon.

The overall effect is beautiful and dramatic. 

Let me say this:

We are all Jesus children, the young, and the old. Some people in this modern age tend to believe or want others to believe that when we are older that only infants and small children matter in the eyes of Jesus. Well, they are wrong. We adults will always matter too. After all, weren’t we once his infants?

Until next time,

     Chow Darlings.

P.S. Below are recent photos of Mary and the plumeria plants, which is growing fast. It should be beautiful when it begins to bloom next year. Click to enlarge.

  These Plumeria plants have comes a long way from the sticks they use to be.
