My beautiful, lush, rapidly growing Celosia spicata. Grown from seeds given to me by Jenny over at Rock Rose which, in turn, were given to her by Phillip over at East Side Patch.
Cleaned out! Annihilated! Murdered! They look like asparagus stalks, FFS! I was shocked. I am shocked. WHY? WHY???? These things have been growing there since late March! Why now? I. am. SO. irritated. Grrrr. Damn chikkins. Damn, damn, damn chikkins. These were destined to be gorgeous towering specimens of beauty and innovation and desire. (It's late, what can I say?) But, really, I have been very, very invested in the growing of these. Dammit to hell... (as my crazy Aunt Margaret used to say.) I would say more but my mama reads this blog.
Consolation prize: my zinnias. Pretty pretty. Not eaten by chikkins. Grown from seeds given to me by Pamalicious.
