About the time I was ready to fall on my lips - it started to rain, which means I get a few days break from outside work. Planted another 200 or so daylily divisions and we finished restructuring the cutting garden by widening the center path. Hubby re-cut the wood edging to fit. To show my gratitude I slapped a bunch of stain on the faded boards. He's happy!
Outdoor office with yet another pile of daylilies to be planted.
Each year I bring in geraniums so I have cuttings in the spring to replant. I cut them way back meaning by Christmas they will be grown back and blooming - an added bonus. This year I wanted smaller pots and finding none in the potting shed I did a bit of shopping. Everything was too expensive.
One of my other goals has been to use up all the half-full cans of spray paint that have accumulated. Hmmmm - I have a gazillion ugly black nursery pots. Wonder what's left in spray paint? Olive green? That will work. I used up what was left of the green paint.
Bonus? The pots fit on my window sills so they won't all be crammed in the dining room.
Ewwwwwwwww.....what about those huge holes?
Your pot planting friend. Coffee filters...
In the spring I'll take cuttings...
Within about a week they'll have lots of roots
Last year I ended up with about 125 geraniums to plant in my yard. Savings? About $250.00
My favorite is the variegated pink geranium...
