Watching the Tide Roll Away
This is the view out our back door. Beautiful, isn't it? My petunias on the deck are not doing so well this year. Some little persistent white bug seems to be sucking the life out of the greenery. And I think living in a "rain forest" doesn't bode well for them, either. But my geraniums love it down by the gate. The sun, the downpours all make them happy. The lesson for me is to remember to pick the right plant, from now on, for the right location. A sun plant in the shade simply won't thrive. Good lesson for life.
