Planting Time Presents Flowers
|June 21, 2012||Posted by Helen under Home Decor & Travel|
Time seems to have stood still with the newly planted pots, while we were at home watching them. These shots were made not long before we drove to Atlanta to hop on the airplane to go to Cozumel with our son, d-i-l, and grandchildren for 8 days. Yes, it was a total surprise trip. Those 4 called to tell me Happy Birthday in early April, and then totally surprised us with an invitation to join them on an all expense paid trip to celebrate our 45th anniversary and it’s also covering our birthdays! Our hearts were overjoyed with their fabulous surprise! So, there we were in the midst of getting our porch, deck, and home ready for summer. Nothing would stop us from going…you know we truly would not have fretted if we had arrived home to parched plants. Fortunately, using the Miracle Grow with Moisture did the job well. No death of plants yet. Check out these great looking ferns below.
The truth is that the ferns spent the entire 9 days, that we were away, just hanging in their back corners of our screened porch. A heavy dose of fertilizer prior to our trip and the Miracle Grow with Moisture and a huge drink of water did the work we could not do. We are still smiling about the shape they were in.
We still have a lot of grooming to do out there. Hoping it all comes together well in the next week. We’ve had a few minor problems locating the items, that I think we absolutely have to have this year. Some are replacements for the old that either had to be thrown out or we just needed/wanted a new fresher look. Stay tuned…it’s coming…even if rather slow this year!
Glad to be home safe and sound and with a grateful heart. Glad to link to the following blog hops/parties, too. Thanks for visiting and please hurry back soon.
