Thanks for your visits the past week. We have been out of town for 5 days, so that is why you have not heard from me. I had a couple of posts scheduled. I hope to get around to visiting everyone soon.
When I removed the hostas from the deck planters, I also removed some liatris (gay feather). I put a couple in this whiskey barrel on the deck.
I cut off the ugly dahlia leaves from the garage urns this morning. I was left with a lot of bare stalks, though there are new dahlia leaves coming out near all the spots I cut. Still I needed something to fill in the bare spot--I went to the basement and brought out some scarecrows to fill in the space.
Here is the second urn flanking the garage door:
and the close up of the cute little scarecrow:
I also added a scarecrow to the porch planter.
The pink Park Princess dahlias in this container really looked bad, so I cut them all the way down to the soil. I also had to remove a few Cordayline leaves as a fuzzy worm was eating them. I picked off and stomped on 5 fuzzy worms crawling on the leaves.
See the sedum Autumn Joy at the bottom of the picture? It's only the beginning of all the SAJ's I have in this front garden. Take a look:
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
