My latest small container planting is Calibrachoa (trailing petunia) in front of coleus for a shady area in one of my gardens. I hope it is not too shady for the fast-growing little flower.
I have been watching the price on this bag since last year.I loved it since I first saw it, but it was way more expensive than I wanted to pay. Last week it finally was marked at a rock-bottom close-out price AND I also found a take-30%-more-off -PLUS-FREE shipping coupon. I couldn't click fast enough to order this fun bag. It's big, but no so big that I can't use it as my handbag. I have been using it the past week and have gotten so many compliments.
I only wish it had a zipper on the top. It has a nice sturdy magnetic clasp, but things can still fall out --as they did when I had to slam on my brakes when a semi pulled out right in front of me! Unbelievable...the semi pulled out into a turn lane and then shot right out in front of me! The bag flew off the back seat when I hit the brakes, scattering lipstick all over the car floor. I wanted to lay on the horn and flip the bird to that semi-truck driver as he glanced back in his huge rear view mirror. But being the lady I am, I just mumbled to myself while waiting for my heart rate to return to normal.
I have been all over town for the past month trying to find some cannas to plant at work. No luck - there is not a canna to be found. So I had to come up with a different plan for the four containers I do at work. I decided to use hibiscus trees - two red and two yellow - as the thriller plants with various underplantings.
I am looking forward to a nice weekend. I think rain is predicted and I like that. I will just have to stay inside and get some much needed cleaning done.
What are your weekend plans?
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
