Norma's Garden Photos

Our next entry in the Seventh Annual Infomaniac Garden Photos Event is from Miss Normadesmond.

"This photo was taken in April. I’d been given some seeds and I went ahead and sowed"...



"Things were looking kind of good, but then they died.

So I threw it all out and bought a fur coat"...



We remind you that Miss Normadesmond is the reigning Miss Cocks in Frocks.

LX's Garden Photos

Our next entry in the Seventh Annual Infomaniac Garden Photos Event ( I said event, not competition) is LX.

He's got some 'splainin' to do...



He says, "As I no longer have a yard, or garden, or house plants for that matter, I must submit a garden item from the supermarket.

This year it is cranberry sauce! Just imagine it suggestively giggling inside the can!"

Mr. Peenee's Garden Photos

Our next entry in the SEVENTH ANNUAL INFOMANIAC GARDEN PHOTOS EVENT is MR. PEENEE...


(Actual untouched photo of Mr. Peenee)

Over to you, Peenee. Tell us about your garden. (And remember to click to enlarge photos.)

A lovely old timey Buddleia...


I love its fragrance, especially this old one. I have several more further back in the yard with much more dramatic foliage, dark purple with an orange tip, but this is the easiest one for me to get to and also the strongest smell.


A close up of said bed with this years candidates for color, begonias, caladiums, and coleus. I know they're annual to the rest of the world, but here, some of these are 3 years old and going strong...



Next, a view down into my patio edged by a large raised bed, in which I have been switching out plants for all these years, never satisfied and then nostalgic for some bed of Calla lilies I dug up in the Bush administration...



The foxglove is one of those fortuitous accidents, a gypsy that wandered into the yard probably from some bird's poop and keeps coming back every year. Unfortunately, it's in the middle of the path, so you have to navigate around it, I think it's worth it...



I love these tiny, tiny Rain Lilies...


They bloom when it rains or you water them. They're so small the leaves look like a grass and so my new gardener was weeding them out until I sweetly told him to knock it off.


And finally, my annual vista of my back yard, taken from the window behind my toilet. It's the best view I have...


There really is a path through there, and at right angles to it is a new trail caused by my clear cutting tumbled down the hill through the irises and ferns and crocosmia. Oh well, everybody needs a little extra space and light every now and then.

Thank you, Mr. Peenee!

The Zen of Gardening

Finally, you Bitches can sit back and relax...



Thanks to those of you who submitted photos for the upcoming SEVENTH ANNUAL INFOMANIAC GARDEN PHOTOS EVENT. Take some time to meditate (or medicate, in Peenee's case) and reflect on the fruits of your labour.

In the days to come, you'll be seeing the gardens of your fellow Infomaniac Bitches, blooming before your very eyes.

This year, we here at Infomaniac are taking a different approach. Rather than one long post, we'll divide the event into separate posts. We'll start with the Bitch who was first to submit his photos and then work our way through the list.

Stay tuned. The SEVENTH ANNUAL INFOMANIAC GARDEN PHOTOS EVENT begins later this week.

Garden Pics Deadline

Question: Are you lazy Bitches going to send in your garden photos? Or not?...



Read the previous post, if you missed it.

Deadline: SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 30th. 

Note: Jeffery & Mr. Peenee are exempt from this question as they both appear to have a concept of "deadline" and know how to use a calendar.
