My lilac plant has buds!
It’s the first thing I’ve planted in the front that is definitely (probably) not going to die. How thrilling! In the case of pretty much everything else, though, the jury’s still out…
Here, for example, is the second terrace. I planted it in the dark, so the layout is a little, um, expressionistic. Anyway, everything here looks wan and sickly. Is it because I left the cuttings out in the blazing sun for a week before I planted them? (I’m sorry! It was Christmas!)
I guess succulents aren’t so indestructible after all. Talk about your false advertising.
So thank God for my little lilac. At least somebody’s not a quitter on these terraces. In a couple more days I think we’ll have some flowers.
The rest of you lot: pay attention!
