A Bloom of Hope


Something is eating my tulips. 
Rude. 
I know we have lots of ants and potato bugs- 
do those eat plants? 
My mother-in-law said it might be snails. Gross.
I noticed it a few days ago and was discouraged, 
because I've had problems growing flowers here.
Then, today, I saw this-



They're growing despite the stupid bugs. 
They're my inspiration.
Ignore the afflictions, whatever is 'eating' you, 
and bloom anyway.

  1. i've heard a bowl of beer will kill the snails. Ladybugs will kill the afids (don't know how to spell that) Just look online you'll find lots of remedies.:)

  2. But, then I would have to buy beer. That would be so weird!
