Hello again, savvy savers! This week does not find much different in my gardens, except that the humidity and heat has all but killed the annuals I planted in my front window boxes, decimated my ferns, and despite diligent watering, it seems that those plants may be done for the season. Though this saddens me greatly, it does remind me that Autumn is right around the corner, and within a month I will be able to stop pulling the blooms off of my chrysanthemum plants, and plant additional groupings as well! Oh, how I love mums!
Back to summer! What I can brag about this week is the continued progress of my rose plants, growing along my upcycled trellis! They are so beautiful, smell amazing, and within two years, I estimate that they will cover the center part of my home, between my den and nursery room windows, which will give such great character and curb appeal to the outside of our home! Roses are one of the ways I cheer myself up during the week, just looking at them brings a smile to my face, even in the humidity of the deep south! So, that’s all this week from my garden! Stay tuned for next week, as I will be getting plans together for my Fall displays!
Here’s to next week!
