Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #112: Self’s Word is ‘Growing’

The prompt from Ann-Christine:

Choose one (1) word or more – choose all of them if you like! The words available are the following:

  • Comfortable
  • Growing
  • Tangled
  • Crowded
  • Exuberant

The word self picked, which was easiest for her since she’s been gardening a lot, is GROWING. Here are a few pictures she took yesterday.

This is one of self’s newest additions to the front garden:

This plant just popped up on one side of her driveway. It seems to be a different kind of ivy from the others. Self finds it so pretty:

Finally, here are some geraniums growing in a huge pot that she bought years ago from Chinatown. Geraniums are very, very easy to grow, and she loves their bright, cheerful colors:

Thank you for the prompt, Ann-Christine!

Stay safe, dear blog readers. Stay safe.

    I love that first flower, Marianne. Lovely colors.

      Thank you! I got it all down to a system: I buy wee plants, cause you know, I can’t dig such a big hole. But I use the best soil, and lavish care, and they grow fast!

    One of the few things a COVID restriction can’t stop, hurrah! Lovely plants to enjoy.

      Absolutely, gardening is not canceled! I’m lucky to have a garden. It’s therapeutic.

    A lovely garden you have indeed – that special plant I believe is a Lewisia. I have one as well and think it is beautiful. And Geraniums I adore – yours look wonderful! Thank goodness growing is not forbidden…

      THANK YOU! I forgot to keep the plant stick. I thought it was a Lewisia! I love the stripes. My geraniums love that big pot. There’s no hole in the bottom (it’s a very old Chinese pot, I didn’t want to drill a hole or I might crack it), so I put a layer of stones on the bottom, and put the geraniums in a pot that was slightly smaller, then rested that on the stones. And those geraniums just love that arrangement.
