365 Days of Photos – Day 77

My phlox is small.

I want my phlox to be big like my friend Corey’s phlox. I planted quite a few of these little guys 2 years ago….many of them died off. But a few survived and they come back each year 3 small patches of phlox. That’s it…3 small patches!

My friend Corey’s phlox are huge….they fill his flower beds with mounds of bright colors.

My phlox are small….I want big phlox, just like my friend Corey.

Is it wrong to covet his phlox?

    You have my deepest sympathies. I have the same infliction, except mine is hydraegea-envy.

    I fear my hydraegena-envy will blow up when I discover that this past winter killed my puny plants completely 😦

      I hope you get your therapy sessions lined up in advance because once you realize those babies aren’t coming back those sessions will be needed!! 🙂

      LOL Gemma…..when I finished writing this post and read it out loud to Tina….I cried I laughed so hard. I’m so glad I’m not the only one that allowed my brain to mis-interpret the words and meaning of this post!! 🙂

    Cracking up! Phallus phlox!
    I have a hard time growing hostas and lily of the valley. Everyone tells me how easy both of these are and in fact lily of the valley is actually considered a weed by some people but can I grow it? Noooo!

      It makes me smile to know I’m not the only twisted one out here. Thanks to you and Gemma I do not have to be lonely!!

      Sorry about your plant growing disability. I believe we will be starting a support group!
