I needed to fill in a couple of bare spots in my container gardens, so I headed out after lunch to hunt-and-gather. I just love getting what I want!
I raided the “[near] dead-plant rack” at the local garden store this afternoon. Most were a dollar or less, and I think they can all be saved easily. Just some trimming, dead-heading, good soil, and a little TLC. They should bloom for me all summer. I remembered to grab the camera for a couple of “before” shots.
I’m taking a break to cool off a little, wait for a shower to pass and post this quickie. I just l-o-v-e a good bargain.
Here’s a bonus shot of the beauteous and cantankerous southern belle, Little Miss, looking annoyed by the boom of low-flying fighter jets. Thank goodness these are not an everyday occurrence.
Oops, my break just got longer. The rain is suddenly heavy. I don’t think it’s going to last very long. Alas, I guess I’m doomed to sip my lemonade and browse the ‘net for a little while before I return to the garden.
Isn’t life great?
