I hope that everyone has had a great weekend. I spent part of my weekend making dish cloths. I have really enjoyed making these dish clothes for friends and family. I will be adding them to mini gift baskets filled with inexpensive kitchen gadgets and a sweet smelling dish soap. As I crochet each of these clothes my mind is free to think about the friends and family members who will receive them. I am able to pray for them and get encouragement knowing that they love me just as much as I love them.
Here is a photo of my indoor Impatience plant. This is my first experience with ‘Impatience’ and I am not sure how long they will bloom or grow for that matter. I have had them since Memorial Day. I purchased two 8 packs for $1.00 so, I think that I did pretty well.
Here is my Basil plants. Well one of them. I brought this one inside because ‘Japanese Beetles’ were beginning to much on the leaves before I could. I still have four more outside in my vegetable garden and the slugs and caterpillars get to much on a few of those leaves before I harvest them.
Here are the annual ‘Petunias’ that I bought early in the Spring on clearance. I paid $1.00 per pot and was able to fill in a good bit of my front yard landscape at that price.
These are my ‘Gladiolus’ that were planted three years ago. I love them because they are so hardy and beautiful as cut flowers.
I love the colors found in my Tropical Plant. This plant is an annual, but I will bring it inside during the Fall to see if it will last until next season.
Next is the Peaches and Cream ‘Lantana‘. Next is the “Red Spread Lantana” which blooms red and orange.
Also making a debut is seed grown mini ‘Zinnia’s’
And store bought large ‘Zinnia’s. The first picture is a Zinnia as it unfurls it’s beautiful petals.
The next addition is the ‘Pink Phlox”.
and a few Hosta’s.
