Lost Garden MoJo and Empty Pots
Today I think I've lost my garden mojo. I've been inside a week and I've let things go and before. I had to show that I've been neglecting. Usually If I walk by this it would bother me big time. But I just don't feel like fixing this in the heat. I never have an empty pot. Even the Cherubs are upset with me. And I try to weed out all the bad things that spring up in my gardens. The more I look at these things the less gets done lately. The picture you see here is a long bed that goes down the yard side of the garage. It's beautiful in the spring with pinks, and spring iries and bulbs. But now look at it. It has overgrown to the point of no return!!! I have a problem with Virginia creeper and those vines that get the orange tubular flowers that hummingbirds love. I can't even think of the name of it. I remember playing with these flowers as a child, putting them on your fingers. But I don't want them here in my gardens. I can't believe people pay for these invasive vines!!! They grow everywhere here.
I could just kick myself for letting this go, now I have more work.
This is a picture looking at the side garden coming out from the basement area. This big deck is being shortened and I will landscape around this maybe next year!
On a little happy note nobody is hurt from this and it will get cleaned up soon!
I make a promise. So anyway yesterday went to one of my favorite stores Bed,Bath & Beyond and picked up a BIG Jar so I could make a "Terrarium" . I have to go pick out some plants to put in it and get some charcoal but other then that I think I'm ready. If any readers out there have any suggestions please leave a comment for me. Love to learn new things. I really would like to put my favorite Seaglass into this Jar but I will refrain and use it for what it was bought for. I'll get another later.
And here is one of my buddies "Harley" sitting in the dead grass waiting to go back inside, doesn't he look happy to have his picture taken.
So hope all is well with everybody and your grass doesn't look like mine. Have a fantastic day and don't forget to smell the Roses!!
