The Other Side of the Fence

It always amazes me that some plants look awesome in other locations and pathetic in my yard. I was walking my son’s dog, while we were visiting him in the Cincinnati area, and saw the most gorgeous Begonias & Hydrangeas - in a shopping center parking lot. Alongside of a main road there was a fabulous display of flowers and colored foliage that I would jealously guard if it were in my yard. When we were in Mexico there were some beautiful Bougainvillea at the resort where we stayed. The Hellebores in Portland streetscapes were huge. I want to grow plants like that.

It makes me start to think these would be great places to live. Think of the garden I could have there! Then I remember that most of the year it’s either hot & humid or snowing or raining or in danger of hurricanes. My side of the fence isn’t so bad after all. I have given up on hydrangeas, but my geraniums look great.

Hope to see you at a Propagation workshop in the near future.
