The flowers are beautiful. I follow another blog where the writer picks a bouquet of fresh flowers from her garden every week. This would be wonderful if I had land and space to do this. She did make me think that even though I'm not going to go into my yard and pick the flowers that are blooming because if I did I would not have them to look at, but there are flowers/plants that I can pick that won't be noticed missing. I have a lot of hosta. Their leaves are huge. The end of Summer is the perfect time before the leaves start to turn yellow. Why let all the foliage go to waste. My mind is envisioning how creative I can be and what I can grow from seed to cut. I kept that in mind when I planted the zinnia although I planted them late. I can grow pots of flowers in the Spring just for cutting to bring inside. Or I can grow them in pots just for the inside, and I have a large shrub that needs pruning. Back to the thrift store. At the gardening class on houseplants, our presenter talked about inexpensive ways to obtain interesting containers for plants. She obtained some of hers from the thrift store. I haven't been there for a while because the clutter in my house tells me to stay away, but the gardening class inspired me to go see what I like that caught my eye. I will show you below. Enjoy the flowers.
