Re: Ball gardens....addiction.
I assure you, I jest not!! LOL Garden chat does give the plant nut an
outlet to vent, and to find solice that they are not alone in their addiction,
but.....on the negative side, it is like a drug addict going to Woodstock (for
lack of a better analogy).......it's just encouraged me to try new plants.
Usually the severity of my addiction doesn't show until I have to cover or
bring things in for the winter. In past years we've had such mild winters
though, and I've tended to stick with plants that would pretty much make
it......and most do. The ones that don't just left room for new ones. (big smile)
However, then Rita came along......"bring in everything not permanent in
your garden". AGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It blew my mind how much we
really had. Geesh. The more I moved, the more I found. Unbelievable!!!!
I felt like living in one of those shows where they unearth horders houses
full of papers, etc. I eventually gave up totally, figured that even Rita
would have a hard time figuring out what to pick up and throw. LOL
The real wake up call came though....when I figured I'd learned my lesson
and would not add any more plants......a month after the hurricane I went to
several plant sales.....sure I used restraint, and my usual judgement as to what
to buy and what not....but...I BOUGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! After all these
were plants I just had to have, hadn't had before, or was talked into trying
from palm enthusiasts, bamboo enthusiasts, etc. etc. All friends, mind
you.....now what kind of friend would fuel an addict's fire, when they know I
didn't want to get into bamboo's and palms???? Never fails, they GIVE you a
plant to try....you'll love it they say.....HA...sure enough........after all,
it's a plant!
