You can plant things in the ground and they might survive.. Most time they will not make it. Lovely plants and flowers can be seen thriving very well in hot concrete or out in the hot asphalt on the roads. Hard to understand.
Young 87 who is enjoying life to the fullest. Retired in 1991 after working 40 years. Lost my husband in 1995. This is a new world for me and I am not a writer. So bear with me, and perhaps in the future I can present something of interest to you.
