I have not returned the Home Depot plants. I was all set to go after work and when I pulled out the receipt to make sure it was correct, it was from a purchase in May! Good thing I checked that before I got there.
I have not done any work in any of the gardens all week. Many of you think I am always working out there, but I am not. :) I often go two weeks without doing any garden work (except watering the deck containers) . Now that the year is ending, I am not that particular about watering the perennials.
I did walk out to get a few pictures of flowers just coming in to bloom.
My butterfly bush is huge this year because I did not have to cut it back to the ground. I noticed the first butterfly yesterday.
One of the grasses in the rockwall garden has had seed heads for weeks now.
That's the butterfly bush in the background.
Echinops (globe thistle)
I am disappointed as there are not many of the lovely blue orbs this year. The dahlias are in containers that I moved to the garden two weeks ago. I really like the dark foliage of this dahlia.
Tropicanna is almost ready to burst open.
I had to return the Croc shoes from Amazon. They were way too tight and too narrow, yet they were the same size I always get in regular Crocs. That company is very inconsistent with their sizing. I didn't like them anyway. They looked like an exceptional cheap shoe and they were totally flat. I thought they appeared to have a bit of a wedge in the picture. What a nice surprise to find that Amazon had no charge for the return.
Here's hoping we all have a wonderful weekend!
