Playing Lotto....Colorado Country Style....
What a chore. We have so much adobe clay in the soil here, it took soaking the ground and many attempts over 2 days to get two peasly holes dug for these things! Josh wouldn't even dig the holes for me....he said "Mom, its like digging thru DIAMONDS" ....HA! But it was. It was horrible. I finally got them in the ground and a little wire strung to hold them up, and then......the wind came.
One literally got snapped in two poor thing, I tied it back up but am not expecting it to last. The other one is doing OK, tho its leaves are horribly sun & wind burnt. Every morning, I trek out to see how they are doing and give them a half bucket of water each. The other morning how surprised I was to find....:::::::GASP:::::: a bloom!
A little bloom coming on my precious little plant!
I love how its so fresh~ the little petals are still all wrinkly from being folded up~ Isnt it beautiful!!!
~Don't forget to take time to savor the little things~
