Hang the Red Lantern

I am not much of a gardener. Anything growing in my yard or in my house has to pretty much take care of itself. I either over-water, under-water, or forget-to-water. At one point, I even lobbied TOM to dig out all the grass and replace it with green concrete. He wasn't buying it. Our yard does not look like a golf course. but I have come to find a few plants that are drought tolerant and require little care on my part.

It looks like a type of lavender plant. I had fun going through your blog today and look forward to following you!

It does look like a cross between wheat and lavender! Whatever, the photo is GORGEOUS!

It is a lavender. It is closer to blooming now.

I hear you! We are soooo glad not to have to worry about the yard. Living in our villa, all of that is taken care of. We have to pay for it, of course, but I don't think the costs will come close to what we used to spend on various lawn equipment and plants and water!

This is a very creative photograph! You are very skilled!

I love the angle of the photograph. It makes for a beautiful photo.

I like that shot. I agree - most of my yard is brick but I am always pulling weeds out of them.

My husband would smile at the allusion to one of his favorite movies. And we are the same when it comes to gardening! Doesn't help that bugs always try to make a meal out of me. Whenever I want new flowers, I just stick seeds in the soil and hope they grow and bloom. Usually, they do, but it could be a year or more after. :)

Beautiful image! Enjoy the lavender when it blooms! Hmmm… I wonder if they'll survive our heat — I'll have to do some research.
