I over-protect and over-expect when it comes to plants and people.
The results are not ideal.
My latest lesson involves my Tiger lilies ‘Splendens’.
They were the only plants that bloomed last summer because the deer did not eat them..
I consider them a treasure because of this and their extreme beauty.
I over-protected the bulbs over the winter. I over-babied them all spring.
I finally let the poor little plants out into the garden in July.
They are way behind in growing and blooming.
The bulbils that were collected and planted have also been over-sheltered.
They have barely grown, yet two babies have produced bulbils of their own
which are actually growing roots while still attached.
Sort of reminds me of fast girls with strict mamas.
Will I ever get over the “overs”?
