I usually go shopping on Mondays, but I ended up going into town today instead. Lowes was one of the stops on my list and I couldn’t resist passing through the plant department. There were tall racks filled with flowers in so many hues that they reminded me of a box of Crayola Crayons. Which ones to choose? There isn’t much room in the budget for flowers but I had to have some. I found some nice ones for .99 cents a six pack, so I loaded my cart with yellow French Marigolds, red Salvia and Variegated Vinca. They should fit nicely in the porch planters.
There are enough flowers left over after filling the planters for another container. I have a couple in mind but there are only so many hours in a day and they will have to wait until tomorrow. There was also a hanging basket filled with pretty little flowers, like wild flowers that are my favorite.
Don’t worry Sissy. There is still the flower bed around the stump to do when you come out. So start thinking about what to put out there. Maybe we’ll even fill some more containers to put around PHF.
