I was talking with the ladies in the office earlier this week. One of them has made an adorable little fairy garden for her office. I told her I was going to sneak in and steal it one night after she left for the day. She found the cutest butterfly plant stand, and has all kinds of little ferns and figurines in there. Serious indoor plant envy! Anyway, she commented how her garden just isn’t doing as well this year as in previous years either, so we came to the conclusion that the weather has something to do with it. It has been much hotter this year than last, and we think the plants just aren’t liking all the extra heat. So, that problem is solved. See what happens when a couple of women put their heads together? lol
One day it was so hot, and when I looked out the window I could see the plants gasping for water. I don’t know how many trips I made, just pitcher after pitcher. I gave every pot at least 1-2 gallons, and did all the in-ground plants, as well. I was going to make doggone good and sure that my plants were not going to die of thirst.
And of course, it rained that night.
But the next day, I swear, lush-city! Everything just seemed to explode.
Naturally, as I was trying to water one of my hanging plants, the pot got too heavy for the twine holding it and “blam” it hit the ground. Fortunately nothing broke or spilled out of the pot. Now my hook is lopsided. I need some weather resistant hanging cord.
And that’s how my garden’s growing this week! How’s yours doing?
