The deers seem to be extremely stressed after last weekend so they don’t show up here until late at night now. Not surprising really since they were chased by a dog and one of them died. I don’t think they connect this garden with that but one never knows when that hunting dog will turn up again. Also, when lots of deer comes to one place like this it attracts other predators like the lynx. No lynx has shown up here so far but they have killed deers in gardens here before.
I bought two poinsettia last week and they are amongst the few plants I kill rather quickly 🙂 The biggest problem is to get them home to be honest, they really can’t take any cold at all and if I actually manage to bring them home without chilling them down I always have problems with the watering part, they either get too wet or too dry, I never get it right 🙂 But poinsettia are the big Christmas flower here so I usually want a couple even if I know they’ll die before Christmas 🙂 The other big Christmas flower here is the Azalea. Those I rarely have any problems with though and I can have them for several years until I get tired of them and plant them in´the garden, they can’t take our winters so when I plant them I sort of say bye bye 🙂
Otherwise I’m not a person that likes potted plants indoors. I have a few cactuses and some orchids because they don’t need a lot of attention or water 🙂 I do have a few other plants but mostly for sentimental reasons, I’ve gotten them from friends so I really can’t kill them. After all I am a gardener 🙂
I’m getting more and more irritated on my new computer and it isn’t Windows 8 this time. The pad (I think it’s called that, You know thew square I control the arrow by) is either over sensitive or not sensitive at all. Only when writing this I’ve zoomed the page in all directions and I wasn’t even near the place where I do that. But when I really want to do something it’s so insensitive that I must press down my finger really hard! Also the letter buttons are much smaller on this one than my last so I tend to write several letters at the same time, that’s really annoying!Computers!!!
It’s time to make something to eat and a couple of cups with cocoa. after that I’ll sit down on the floor to have a chat with my dogs.
Have a great day!
