It is with shame that I admit to another spring of barely keeping plants alive in a bucket! Yes, last year I spent good money buying flowers I intended to plant and they ended up living in plastic containers in my kitchen without me making time to actually put them on the ground.
This year I got some plants from my brother's garden and took them home to plant. What happened to them? Well, I haven't gotten around to them. Not that I haven't had the time, I just don't think about them until early in the morning when I am running out the door to work and only water them to keep them alive or late at night when I am going to bed and I don't have the energy to pot them. Poor little plants, my husband teases me but he should shame me in to action. (I am hoping I shame myself with this post)
Last weekend I was at Sam's Club looking around and found a great deal on some flower pots. I just couldn't buy them! They were the size and color I have been wanting for our front porch, but the shame of having other empty pots stored in the garage while plants sit waiting in a bucket needing to be re-potted wouldn't let me do it. Besides I didn't want to come home and have my honey say something to me about my purchase; ok, may be not actually say something but could not bear a disapproving look.
Anyways, I am hoping to I get motivated to work on the flower beds and take care of those other poor plants needing my attention this long weekend.
