Second verse, same as the first..

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.

  2. Bryan is the one with the green thumb, not me. I'm right there with you on the "having good intentions" front, but I just never get around to getting those puppies in the ground. Maybe this year!!

    1. Hope you at least try it once this year. I do better with potted plants than on the ground. Less maintenance!
