I love to practice in my garden.
I do different things every year with my little waterfall planter.
This year's purple and lavender theme made me happy.
Catmint and daisies are always a pleasing combo.
Squazz and I are co-hosting an engagement party here this weekend.
Our gardens decided to give up the ghost this week;
Just in time for Saturday's festivities.
These were once beautiful pink geraniums and bacopa.
They graced a balcony railing on the front of our house.
I threw them in the yard waste pile yesterday.
This clematis was beautiful.
You just have to take my word for it.
I swear: blooms like saucers.
I had to cut it back yesterday.
This is the waterfall today.
It was as if every bloom just gave up and vanished overnight.
Here we go.
They'll probably be gone by the end of today.
To petunia heaven.
I may get another round of blooms out of them yet.
But not by Saturday.
At least we have these happy guys.
And the sunflowers are always good.
Maybe nobody will notice the lack of blooms around here.
I hate to go get mums this early in the season.
But I may have no choice.
Well, we always have these festive visuals.
Am I the only one out there suffering from a dearth of flowers this year?
Maybe they are in Mental Pause too.
Like Mama, like flower?
