I Must Do This Again Next Year

October 9th, 2010

Remember how I dressed up the garage window with my collection of flowerpots filled with a variety of begonias? They did really well all summer, I only had to water them once a week or so, even with all the hot weather. I’m thinking I may need to move the shelf a little lower as the plants got a little taller than expected. The one on the end got too big for it’s pot and flopped over.

I’ll definitely be doing this again next summer since I loved it so much and it was quite easy to take care of. I’ll be trying some smaller begonias or moving the shelf down.

Do you have any annuals you use each year in your garden? Anything you do from year to year to dress up your garden or home?

Shop through these links and I get a few cents each time. It's not much, but it allows me to buy a new cookbook or new gardening book every couple months. I appreciate your support!
