I have decided my garden needs Donald Trump.
|Safrano is working hard.|
There is a lot of my garden that I love. But there are parts. Oh, yes, there are some parts that need to be fired! And I've decided to do it this year.
I've given these plants plenty of time. I've tried everything I know to do to make them happy. Maybe someone else could turn these plants around. But I'm tired of being frustrated, disappointed, and embarrassed by their performance.

A couple of the plants that are going are roses. :( To be fair, it's not really their fault. I tried to cut costs by buying these off Wal-Mart's parking lot. Big mistake. That's why Connie at Hartwood Roses tells us every year to purchase only quality roses. It really does make a difference!
Of course, I had to learn it the hard way.
So, I tried to save money, but in the end it cost me. Maybe not so much financially, but in time. I'm sad that it came to this. I really don't have the heart to be ruthless. But it was needed. I'm not going to overlook a plant's performance any more. The Donald wouldn't have an underperforming plant in his garden, I'm sure! And if my garden is going to be beautiful - really beautiful - not just in my imagination, but in reality, I need to do this.
|Tamora is looking good.|
Underperforming plants - you're fired!
Wow, I feel powerful! I just might fire some more plants next year!
Watch out, garden - I'm learning from The Donald!
