Backyard blunders and bull’s-eyesPosted: May 21, 2012
I can’t figure out what the heck is wrong with my Silver Cassia.
When I planted it back in January, she looked a-like-a-this.
She’s not a bad looking gal. Fast forward to today, and this is what we’re dealing with.
I don’t want to say it’s the saddest thing ever, but it sure is breaking my heart. I just don’t get it. We water her daily. She gets plenty of sun. We used top notch soil during the potting process. It just doesn’t make a lick of sense. I thought maybe we were watering her too much, but she’s dry as a bone. I’m flummoxed. If anyone has any tips on what to do with this once majestic beauty, I’m willing to try anything.
Fortunately, all is not lost on the backyard gardening front. This Sunday we harvested our first carrot.
So maybe we won’t have beautiful patio shrubs to gaze out at this summer, but at least we won’t go hungry.
