Take some of the stuff I came home with this time. Pink lilies. Well, I've been thinking of getting some lilies for a while, but pink? I hate pink. Not as a colour - I wear pink all the time. But on the balcony it never seems to go with anything. Nasturtiums - great, I love them. But climbers, when all my trellises are already occupied? And this? Hemerocallis - looks great, but I know absolutely nothing about it. Are conditions right for it on the balcony or have I thrown my money away? And one bright orange Dahlia. Wherever am I going to put that? Then two packs of gladioli when I know my gladioli have failed miserably in the past. And all those seeds. I've got enough seeds to start a nursery already, and wasn't I going to cut down on flowers and grow vegetables this year instead? Not, of course, that I didn't buy vegetable seeds as well. Here's just a few of the collection so far ...
Moral of the story - yesterday I had to go back and buy yet more stuff in order to have some decent combinations, while I think some of the seeds are just going to have to wait till next year.
And next year I really, really won't buy anything new.
