Welcome! to NGA

Interesting... I've struggled to get one to establish in my garden. I've moved it twice, it's never really flourished, and I've never had a bloom. I don't know for sure when I first got it, it's been several years. Maybe it's new home will be the right answer. I do have problems with slugs eating it and this year gave it a ring of copper pennies. I'd sure like to see it thrive.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.
