We have the best of intentions when we plant our garden. We want to plant, prune, weed and water the garden plot so the flowers and herbs can thrive. Then we realize how much time that would take, and the plants are on their own. Last year, we grew a monstrous nasturtium in this sliver of a garden plot, along with some basil. This year, we plopped down some petunias along with some chamomile and lemon balm, which are great for making floral waters. Then we forgot about them for a good part of the summer while we tended to our vegetables. But that’s ok—thanks to all the rain we got over the past few months, these plants have flourished and have turned into a cheerful—if messy—flower garden.
