Well what's a person to do? Too wet to tromp around
outdoors from the rains we have been having. I am trying
to just take the rain all in stride because I know here it
will go from one extreme to another and we will have our
drought spell coming. Can this be June? We had our hot
humid days in the 80's with the air conditioners on and
then wham we got another cool wet spell in the 60's where
we are having to turn on the heat.
Ohio weather, where whatever can happen will.
So this person will take the time to catch up
on the garden blogs and there is always cleaning the house,
yuk! I find the older I get the less everything in my house
has to spotless and everything in its place. ;-)
I am trying a couple of Fushia's for the first time. I am hoping
they will like me and not try to commit to the compost pile.
If anyone has some special tips on growing them I am all ears
and the Fushia's will appreciate the guidance I am sure.
I am always on the lookout for any containers to grow flowers
in and I love recycling or reusing things that can be used for
growing flowers . I found this old basket which I believe may
have been an old funeral basket and painted it a cream color
and stuck a pink fushia and some moss around it. Will the Fushia
like the damp moss around or not? Maybe I need an ivy plant in
the basket also to climb around the handle?
I saw this pitcher and bowl set at the Goodwill store for a
couple of bucks and thought it would make a nice planter.
I stuck this white and lavender Fushia in the pitcher and
a variegated ivy in the bowl. I think the colors will go with
the pitcher and the ivy will spread out nicely when they
take off growing.
Happy Gardening Everyone!
