Picture Log #11: Time Keeps On Slippin' a little over a year later...

Both my roses died. I was actually very surprised this happened. At first I thought it was the planter. I made sure it had good drainage. Apparently not? I'm not too sure.

I guess I'm surprised because these were my favorite $6 WalMart roses (if you recall, said WalMart roses in Joseph's Coat took the hell off when I planted them in the ground. I had great success with them), so I figured I'd get the same results. I didn't want to transfer them into the ground until after I saw they were growing in the planter. Guess that was pretty dumb.

So..the new addition to my household, the guy took it upon himself to UPROOT MY BOUGAINVILLEA AND SNAIL VINE! WHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHYYYYYYYYYYY!?!!?! Fucking jerk.

New additions

Piss poor picture, sorry


It's a bad picture and outdated. The plant has been going through a growth spurt for almost all of January - which I'm very excited about. It's actually just been a long strand growing that has other limbs beginning to grow. It's so long it's wrapped up and down the stick I have in there (for being a gardener, I sure don't know many gardening terms. Sheesh).

I'm very excited to see how this will fair in Southern Californian weather. I want to put it outside in the front yard, but I'm afraid of how it will mesh with the SoCal sun.
