Sunday Supplement

Just a short blog.  I thought it was interesting, I did an inadvertent experiment.  I planted some wave petunias, all bought at the same place, at the same time, and the same type. 

Here is the one that I planted in a combination of coffee grounds and some soil.  (Mostly coffee grounds.)




 
This was planted in a mixture of horse poo compost and soil.

Don't know what to say about this, but I think I might try this again with other plants and see what happens.  I was really amused with the color difference in the two...

  2. Great experiment! Must be some kind of pigment booster (or whatever) in the poo. Very lovely!

  5. They`re very pretty! My flowers are looking rather sickly sadly. Too much sun and wind and not enough remembering to water!
