I could kick myself. And I can't quit thinking about it. I was buying lobelia to line the other side of my new walkway. New because I just finished it.

I saw a 6 pack mix of various colors of verbena. WHY DIDNT I BUY IT???

I have a red and a pink verbena. Once I start a particular species of plant, I end up trying to find just about every color morph.

I found a 6pack of all sorts of colors of verbena. WHY DIDNT I BUY IT??? D'Oh! n

Have you ever felt this way. Wanting to kick yourself. Arrrggghh.

whatever is meant to be will be

I have turned down seed offers only for the plants find their way into my garden through another source.
and yes pass by plants that I thought I could live without only to decide I could not and I went back and got it.

and on the other hand have bought things I could not resist only to get home and ask myself what were you thinking.

things I want to live , die and things I don't like , live a little too much sometimes.

this is how we learn and grow.
A pint can't hold a quart , If it is holding a pint it is doing the best that it can.

Very true. What is meant to be will be. God has a plan for us.

I really didn't need the verbena as Iam working diligently preparing a path and didn't really have room for them, the verbena, yet.

So it actually turned out better without them yet. There will be more verbena later when I am ready for them.

Mindi, I always said that ditty 'woulda shoulda coulda' - must be a regional thing, huh?

I really don't know lol. I was just thinking that phrase when I thought about the six pack. Popped into my head.

Iam as y'all are. Gardening fanatics!!

I feel like saying, "Hi, Iam Mindi and I am a plant addict" lol!!!

I did buy four six packs of lobelia but to line the path. So that was not an impulse buy. The verbena would have been!!!
