Honey keeps saving all the aluminum cans for Rick
and tells him to come and pick them up but he doesn't.
She keeps saving and we had quite a pile since she
doesn't crush them.

Decided to go hunt his home this morning down at
the trailer park and drop off the cans. Honey said she
didn't want to go in there just looking so I went along
to make it work. Went in, turned on Lilly street and I
saw his car/van thing but she kept on going, said there
were two more vans down the street. When she came
back I got out and looked at the flowers next to the road.
I'd forgotten what he said was in the middle but it was
a lilly, a peace lilly Honey said and on both sides there
were the marigolds on each side, yellow on the outside
and the reddish ones on the inside. And now right in
between each marigold bunch was a red geranium.
Red flowers were all showing, couldn't see any leaves.
So tiny I wouldn't have given $5.00 for them.

He mentioned when we went in his closed in glassed in
add on that his flowers weren't doing too well since
we were having this drought. Said he just watered them
once a week. He was looking at some out the side
window though at some flowers there. Oh well.

I wonder why he doesn't water them more than once a week. You get very little rain there it seems and what else does he have to do? Oh well, good to hear you got out and about even if it was only to Rick's trailer.

He's old school but probably could use more in FL.
Biggest problem - over watering like Honey does.

If you water too often it just wets the top and the plants
learn to live that way with shallow roots and are totally
dependent on frequent watering.  Less frequently and the
roots grow deep like they're supposed to in search of
water and it's usually still a little moist deep down. Needs
more for the ones in pots Honey has though.

He's all used up anyway, not much left.  I just wanted to
get rid of the cans and see the gers.  I called that one
right.  His plans for that day was to go down to the legion
hall and pick up his orders for Memorial day.
