Heavenly Zones

I grew up in Zone 5.

I now live in Zone 9. 

This provides an additional four months of opportunity in quelling the onslaught of invaders and reap the rewards.

I sometimes pillage. 

I sometimes destroy.

I often give birth.

Plans are calculated with military precision.

They are fought with special operational assistance from the Espoma league.

Battles have been lost. Many have been won.

I am a good soldier…

I am a gardener.

It also, coincidently, brings me a little closer to Heaven.

  • Sharon Greenthal - I have the blackest thumb…so envious of your talent!ReplyCancel

  • Chloe - I love trumpet flowers, and yours are gorgeous. I miss living in a higher Zone. I live in Zone 1. Why even bother if you live in Zone 1?ReplyCancel

  • William Kendall - Beautiful flowers!

    I would end up killing any plant coming into my care… I’m just hopeless that way.ReplyCancel

  • Sue - I love to zone in and see the beautiful flowers you grow.ReplyCancel

    • A Pleasant House - Thank you Sue. These are really gorgeous. They hang and look exotic and spooky. I took the pic’s from the bottom looking up into them.ReplyCancel

  • Bryan Jones - I’ll show this post to my 82-year-old father, as he is the green-fingered one in our family. He virtually lives in his garden, despite his age.ReplyCancel

    • A Pleasant House - That will be me in time. Maybe your father and I should date? Thanks for stopping by Bryan- I appreciate it.ReplyCancel

  • Theresa Ledford - Everything I touch dies. Seriously. Dan gave me a potted rose for mother’s day. I babied that thing and loved it and watered it only in the mornings and blah blah blah… it curled up and died, so I set it outside on the deck meaning to throw it out. Two weeks later I walk outside and find my discarded rose in full bloom bursting with life. I have never been so put out with a plant in my life. Do you have any bougainvillea? I love that but it doesn’t grow in Virginia.
