We’ve had a cold early spring in Connecticut that is slowing growth to a snail’s pace. Still, a few blooms thrive to share on Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day.
I really enjoyed my first GBBD at May Dreams Gardens in March (thanks to my garden blogging pal Debbie at A Garden of Possibilities for bringing it to my attention). In fact I think it is such a good idea that I’d like to try something similar, but focused on gardening gaffes, sowing slip-ups, or any mistake related to growing plants – indoors or out.
So, in deference to Carol’s GBBD, I’m declaring May 1, 2009 as Gardening Oops – Damn-I-wish-I-hadn’t-done-that Day – GOOPs for short. I’ll post my own faux pas en jardin – even mistakes sound sexier when stated in French, n’est-ce pas? – and ask you to do the same. You can post your entire description here, noting your area/zone if applicable, or just post a GOOPs teaser here along with a link to your own blog where you have more elaborately described your GOOPs. It could be a garden-related purchase, a bad plant combination or a poor planting choice, results from lack of care, or any misstep remotely related to gardening. Let’s learn from each other and at the same time have a little chuckle at ourselves.
If someone else has thought of this already … my apologies … no intent to step on anyone’s toes. The way I see it, gardeners are human so there should be enough GOOPs to go around.
Check back here May 1 … I’ll go first.
