Today we are going to visit Danny’s beautiful garden in Laufersweiler, Germany.
I am sending some photos of my little rose garden. I am an American living in Germany and have become a plant hoarder. My garden is 15 years old, only one tenth of an acre, and it has been planted with 385 roses, hundreds of bulbs and perennials. The coronavirus lockdown is of no avail, as I spend most of my time buying more and more discounted plants or bulbs online. These purchases must be concealed from my husband, who believes that plants and gardening are a waste of good money. His criticism made me sneak into the ground with my own habits. Below is a description of my last taboo. he does not know.
“The dirt is everywhere-in my hair, in my socks, under my nails. My sneakers are covered. My heart is screaming, “It needs to be cleaned up before my husband returns. Burn the box and the invoice, check it. Throw the plastic into the trash can and check it. This afternoon, I planted 20 lilies, 40 ordinary lilies, 50 crocuses, and one large plant. Ito Mudan Roots, 10 white daffodils, 15 monsters Allium Light bulb, 75 sea anemone, 100 short irises. After three hours, there was no evidence that my light bulb was taken away except for the mud shoes by the stairs and the mud trail from the door to the laundry room.
“In order to conceal my obsession with plants/bulbs, I thought I would tell my husband that I moved a rose or something. As the weather was not cold, I managed to buy all these bulbs at a price 50% lower than the normal retail price, and Put them underground before they freeze. At this time of the year, Dutch growers sell their inventory at dump prices. After doing all this work, I really walked into the house, took off my clothes, and took all my clothes ( (Including the jacket) put it in the washing machine, and then took my naked, tired buttocks upstairs to take a shower.
“I’m out of control. The bed is full and I often bump into a light bulb trying to squeeze another. But when the lilies sell for 50 cents each, they have to go in. My husband will be surprised at how many “seeds” are scattered this year. He doesn’t know anything about plants and thinks that my roses are naturalizing and spreading! Of course, copy/clone-including plastic tags!”
