I can’t believe it’s the end of June! All my annuals are still doing well. The annual flowers I planted from seed (stocks, hollyhocks, geraniums, calendula, poppies, etc.) are still up and thriving. I thought I was going to lose these by now but lo and behold, they’re still going strong and flowering. I hope my flowers last until September. I’m using some (i.e. geraniums and petunia plants) as decor in my wedding. If not, I can always go buy some plants at the local garden center. In September, there are chrysanthemums and pr
My zucchini or maybe squash plant that I put in the ground is finally growing bigger. For awhile, it was doing nothing! Literally, doing nothing, nada, zero, zilch! Now, it’s flowering male flowers and soon I hope female flowers. Everything is doing well. No issues with the garden.
However, I am having some issues with my neighbor upstairs. I have a new neighbor and he’s a smoker! Urgh. It’s not the smoking that bothers me, it’s the ashes. He’ll smoke on his balcony and his ashes will fall down on my patio and scorch the plants it hits. I don’t know how to approach him to tell him to quit doing that or maybe strategically place an ash tray on his front door as a gesture.
Smoking is not just a bad habit but it is also endangers my plants. They get burned terribly from the ashes. How would he feel if I just started sprinkling ashes on his head! I don’t know what to do with this one! My other neighbor was the best. She was a college student so she had to go to school during the day and work at night so I hardly ever had a problem with her. Plus, she was a light walker and so it didn’t bother me much but this one is a doozie. He sounds like he’s a heavy kangaroo bouncing around! Urgh…I’m so glad I’ll be moving out at the end of this month. Hopefully, I’ll have nicer, quieter neighbors. Only four more weeks to go…
