A Plant A Day Till Spring – Day 28 – Osteospermum

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

“A Plant a Day till Spring” will highlight one plant a day, starting on the winter solstice (December 21, 2013)… And ending on the vernal equinox (March 20, 2014)… If all goes to plan I will be starting with old Snowdrop photos from 2013… And ending with new photos of Snowdrops in 2014…

Last Summer was the first time I ever attempted to grow Osteospermum… Mine liked full-sun and dry soil… I typically fertilize 3-4 times a year… This plant received no special treatment… It actually bloomed well beyond the first frost right on up until the first freeze… I did notice this plant stresses out easily early on in its life… When the stress level reaches a certain point the plant will stop flowering… It takes a couple of weeks for it to resume flowering…

Yesterdays mission was a complete success… Cuttings taken… Prepared… And planted… As a bonus I found $5 on the sidewalk… I’m getting bored with the “look” of this site… It may be time for a change… Anyway… I’m trying to focus on poetry today… I have started a bunch… But completion seems to elude me…

A lot of people wish they were happy…
Everybody wants to be free…
I often choose to pretend…
I am someone other than me…

Close my eyes and drift away…
… …

New To writing and never had to cite sources before… These “Plant a Day Till Spring” posts are simply intended to kill time until spring when I start writing more… My source is Wikipedia.org… The photography is all my own… And I am adding my own information… But much of this is just related from the web…

This website and all of the information presented within is provided free by the author… Me… It is my sole opinion and is not representative of anyone other than myself… Although this website is free… I sell prints of my photography here – www.society6.com/chriscondello – or you can contact me directly with questions at – c.condello@hotmail.com – Although it isn’t a requirement… It helps…

    Thank you, Chris. My spiritual mentor says that the place we are looking for is that where we can be simultaneously in this world, experiencing whatever pleasure or pain happens, and also in a space of ecstasy. As I write, this, I remember the words, “in this world but not of it.” I am not there yet…

  4. Boredom is not good, as your poem states, I’d rather pretend to be someone other than me. You are you, change is good, boredom is
    the sign of low self esteem…you are worthy…keep your expectations realistic…when your Higher Power moves you…let go and let God…
    and as Aggie said…be content and know that
    “the place where I am is me.”
    Today’s flower loves Florida…
    Love, hugs and blessings, and many more fives…ME and the Boss

    Close my eyes and drift away
    To the place beyond free
    To the place beyond happy
    To the place where I AM is me.
    (Forgive my poetry.)
