Hope Springing Eternal

So when you left this post yesterday, you figured, as did I, that I’d be having Gerber”lettuce” for the rest of the summer. I mean, my mother-in-law is coming for a visit and I would have loved some pretty flowers for her to spruce up the joint.

Granted, the Gerber”lettuce” is green, but there is no pretty blossom there.

A-hah!

Look at what I found this morning!

I am hoping they make it open in time to spruce up the back deck. Thanks, all, for all your suggestions and comments. I appreciated all of them!

Gerber’s Lament


I love Gerber daisies. I tried them this year. I am sad.

According to a neighbor here, they can’t have a lot of direct sun. There are trees down here, but nothing close to the house. I tried to move the Gerbers so they’d be in partial shade through part of the day. I think that the heat has played havoc with them though, much to my disappointment. I have a few blooms still going.


Will I try next year? Probably, but again they’d have to in pots. I will be doing some research to handle them better next year, so I won’t be looking at three pots of Gerber leaves.
