>And yet another flower post

>…one day I will have bored you all senseless, muahaha. Um, yeah.

‚Cause I can’t stop taking pics of this one:
(Today I went to the market booth where I got it and thanked the seller for having such excellent plants. He was so very happy indeed.)

And the new plants in the flowerbox where the maguerites were- it is either a bad year for those or they simply don’t like me, LOL!!

It contains „Million Bells“ (a subspecies of petunias, often found in „hanging gardens“)

and one „Verbena“:
Both come in many colours.

And then this one wanted to come, too, LOL!! I know, I have complained about these looking like mutant Equisetum (horse tail/ Schachtelhalm) before and now suddenly have one and then it is even not white but rather urple… I know, I know… But sometimes you can fall in love on second glance with flowers, too. ^==^;;;

>More "gardening"

>After finding that my magueritas have greenflies, I had to move them both to one windowsill,so that they will not contaminate my other plants until the treatment works. (It has already begun to do so, I saw lots of „dried“ greenflies today when tending to the plants, mwehehe…)
The movement meant I gained some space for the others. I wanted to buy a big lavender today, but I was all over the marketplace and then all flowershops close by- no lavender. At the market was a smallish lavender in tree-form but it looked sick.
At one flowershop I found two nice handmade flowerpots that are frost resistant. One I wanted for my petunia, which hates hanging on the balcony railing and is only thriving since it stood on the ground. For the other, I found a cute little plant. It is called „Gipskraut“ or „Schleierkraut“ („Baby’s Breath“ (Gypsophila paniculata)).
I will keep everything so spacy and far away until I am rid of the little pests…

So now the „tree“-like plants share a window and the small blooming plants stand on the windowsill before my kitchen.

(after those pictures, I removed some suspicious looking leaves, but this one still seems healthy)
