spring purchase. Then, when shopping at a favorite flower shop...I found a pretty Ivy plant. I have those 4 new pots by Guy Wolff...just waiting for plants, so I bought a big Ivy to take apart and put in a couple of these pots. I've been doing more with my houseplants this year, because of the very hot weather. This is my summer purchase.
I always buy wildflower seeds to sprinkle in the woods in the fall. Last year I didn't do this and it wasn't as pretty this year. So, with that in mind, I sent an order into American Meadows for a new mixture of shady wildflower seeds for the midwest. Just a 1/4 lb. package. I love the little burlap pouch that they come in.....almost too cute to open. Just as soon as the leaves fall and things die back in the woods...I'll go out and sprinkle these seeds around where my statue of St. Francis stands. This is my fall purchase.
And last but not least my winter purchase. I couldn't get through the winter without a Red Lion Amaryllis on my plant shelf. I ordered a new one from American Meadows and it will arrive in Oct. just in time to plant for the holidays. I've had better luck with these than ones from the big box stores.
So, that's what I've been doing...here in the house. It just started to rain...and now it's stopped. We are to have a scorcher again today. I have to get off this computer, because my charge card is sitting next to me and the garden nurseries are all sending me very tempting information on their sales.
