Gardens and Flowers and Such

Tulipa Paul Scherer14 Ill.Flowerbulb, BorderTTSome people say I have a green thumb, which is really just kind of silly. I don’t even have time to grow things, so I don’t know what they mean. My garden is just kind of…well, it does its own thing most of the time. So I guess you could say it’s a bit wild. If you wanted to, I dunno. Can if you want.

I suppose there are some flowers. Sometimes I use them to test my memory skills, because you know, as you stop being a teenager your brain starts losing cells or whatever. I’ve heard that, so I try to remember all the names of whatever’s in my garden. So on the left you have a row of daffodil double ice king, so named for their white colour. Yeah, dunno how they got there. Wait, did I plant those bulbs earlier, in the spring? Yeah, I think I did, actually…and there we go, my memory is already fading to pretty much nothing. My downward spiral has begun, and soon I’ll be struggling to sign any kind of form because I can’t remember how my own signature goes.

So yeah, those are daffodils. They sure are nice, you know? They can be hard to grow but they really add a bit of colour to the place once you get them up there and healthy. So yeah, daffodils and such, but I’m not sure I remember most of the others. They’re, like…hyacinths? I don’t know much about them, but they look nice so I thought I’d give them a go.

I really shouldn’t spend so much time out there. I mean, it’s not like flowers really do anything for anyone. I don’t even have a girlfriend to palm them off to, so really…they’re just colourful. I guess that’s fine, the way they are. And I mean, that sure is a lot of colour, you know? I didn’t even know when I got those mixed Hyacinth bulbs that I’d be looking at this much awesome colour. So yeah, maybe I’ll get some more bulbs, plant some more plants…depending on the season, of course.
