Is it just me, or about this time of the summer season, no matter what you do container plants seem to whither up and die?
Witness, the two container plants by my front door.
Well, I will admit, that they were not watered for a week, while I was in Florida helping my niece paint her cabinets. They were sadly neglected :-(
Since we have two more months of summer weather here in NC, I decided to replace them with something new. Not quite fall like, but the taller grasses will blend in with mums later, in October.
Much better, don't you think?
