Last year on about June first I was exhausted from worrying over Samba dying that I took a break and went shopping for some food. While out, there was a stand of plants for sale...how could I resist? I walked in and thought I ought to cheer up myself with a new plant. I bought this beautiful begonia and it bloomed and grew, albeit a bit leggy throughout winter. I put it outside this spring and it has filled in and grown beautifully! It's a nice reminder of my buddy... I hope I can keep it alive for a long time!
These Smith & Hawken metal pots were $49.99 originally. I've been looking for this style for a long time, but was unwilling to pay the price they were asking for! Guess it paid off to wait because I got these for $14.99 each! Woot! Gotta love a good Target deal!
It's been so dry this year my grass is brown! My garlic looked pretty bad and my Stargazer lily flowers are no where near a big as they have been in the past. Even buds have dried up! I'm going to have to water more so they have better growth next year.
