after my last post about my out of control garden?
Take a road trip with my sister to a Huge garden nursery!
I just went to look...
yeah, right. Who am I kidding?
So I bought these for the front yard:
and some plants for my back patio....
I've never really bought "SHADE" plants before,
but with the Weeping Willow tree and this huge overgrown shrub that keeps GROWING
AND my Wisteria is starting to take off too...
that leaves just a little bit of dappled sunlight back there.
I hope they survive.
I plan on making a hanging basket out of the these:
They had huge hanging baskets of them but they were $30.00.
Totally out of my budget.
So I bought smaller plants to make my own baskets.
I'm hoping to attract some Hummingbirds.
Here's a cool metal basket with burlap on the bottom:
I might try that. I have several metal baskets.
But this is what really sucked me in:
Crap. I thought I had resisted the growing trend.
But NO! now I want a Fairy Garden!
...I didn't buy any plants for the Fairy Garden for 3 reasons.
#1 No cash left.
#2 I want to sit down and plan it out.
#3 I need to FINISH my other projects before starting yet another.
(although I have finished my gate this weekend!)
