I can’t remember the name of this plant, but I saw it at a friend or family’s place a few years ago and I really liked it.  So the following spring I bought my own plant.  I usually try to save the tags, but for some reason I did not save this one.  When it rains the leaves stand up and when it is sunny they seem to lay down. 🙂

It is just now flowering and as you can see the flowers are super tiny and a yellow-green in color.  This plant loves coffee fertilizer too! 🙂

I also should mention the soil is more sandy and drains really well, so I like to water this plant every other day.  If the soil is still wet when I go to water it, then I just leave it one more day.  It likes a spot that drains well.

I have three spider wart plants, above, and they traveled!!!!  I didn’t think they could!? At least I thought they needed some assistance with relocating or starting a shoot elsewhere.  I didn’t know where they are located that the conditions were such that they could move on their own.  Anyway there is one in my small planter box, one by my window and one tiny guy out in my lawn!  I will have to dig that one up and put it in a better spot or else it won’t make it.  Does anyone else have this happen with plants you didn’t actually move or plan to?

I finally got around to planting my seeds yesterday.  So I can’t wait to see which ones actually come up this year.  I planted pansies, marigolds, foxglove and poppy.  🙂  I looked for my burgundy sunflower seeds and couldn’t find them.  So when I do I have a spot I will plant those too.  Last year I planted sunflowers late and they did come up, but they were not quite as tall as they would have been if I’d followed the directions and planted them earlier in the spring. 🙂

Please share the types of spring/ summer flowers you enjoy seeing year after year or the new ones you have added to your gardens!  I would love to read all about them! 🙂

Enjoy your day! 🙂
