Plant Life in the Driveway

I stuffed 4 bulbs of elephant ears and 3 or so of caladium into my favorite pot that sits on the front end of the drive-way. I watered every once and a while early on but nothing happened. So I buried some more bulbs.

Then I went on vacation and  forgot all about them.

When I came back home, there was quite a crowd. They stood at attention, bowed and  performed a spontaneous, synchronized wave.  I was frankly, quite touched.

Shortly after, they collapsed from the heat and needed huge water infusions to bring them back from death’s jaws.
