Warning: Today’s post has nothing to do with running, maybe running around like a chicken, but nothing to do with lacing up my Asics and heading out on the trail…
In addition to running, I love gardening! I grew up on a farm, so I guess it sort of makes sense that I love digging in the dirt.
On Monday, I had a few extra hours between my morning clients and my late afternoon clients, so I stopped at my favorite nursery to pick up flowers for my deck and front porch.
I picked up red, white, and blue Wave petunias…
And planted them in a window box on my deck…
And on my front porch…
Next I found Mexican heather to plant with my ferns in my deck garden box; and caladiums to plant as stand-a-lones.
My favorite caladium leaves are the green and pink veined ones! These will get much bigger and be in scale with the pot in a couple of weeks.
A couple of years ago I cut back on the number of flowers I plant each spring and put perennials (such as ferns) in some of my pots so that I don’t have to replant them each year. Brilliant!
Somehow I managed to get all of my flowers planted before the rain hit and my late afternoon clients started arriving. I was practically sprinting around getting everything planted!
Do you wonder how I decide what flowers to plant? It is 100% determined by what this guy doesn’t like to eat!
- Do you like to garden?
- What’s your favorite flower?
- Do you have any wild animal “pets”?
