corner boxes, flowers, helianthuis, arborvitea
it's september but the flowers ellen and shannon planted in may are still blooming away in the corner box on the apartment building side of the garden...not being a flower guy i cannot name them ( beyond the bachelor's buttons ) so it is up to you to fill in the blanks left by my ignorance...helianthus i understand fairly well however and the corner box on the washington street side of the garden is alive with members of that family...they are not finished blooming either apparently...but we will be eating parts of some of them soon...the arborvitae is liking the wet summer and has overcome its original shock to add a few inches in height...the season is not over yet but barring unexpected disaster we can , i think, say it is happy in its new home...next season may call for a reduced watering schedule...provided the climate cooperates.
an industrial worker and university student (everyone needs a hobby...my hobbies have evolved and, to keep things straight, i have left my formal student career behind for reasons that are too detailed to delve into here...continuing to be a student of life however and not adverse to learning...stasis is death ) sliding down the back side of middle age...a social loner with collectivist leanings...explain that.
