It is that time when the weather is UP and DOWN. We have been close to frost on more than one occasion already. It comes quickly!
THE RITUAL: Bring them in!
For as long as I can remember, I have overwintered plants and cuttings of favorite plants in the potting shed. While the potting shed is my happy place, it is a tiny place and believe me, I sometimes feel like I am working a jigsaw puzzle to fit everyone in and have room for me!
This week I took the first inhabitants into the potting shed. A pot of this, a snip of that and the overcrowding has begun.
The geraniums and pot of mint, a bay tree, some succulents and a couple of roses are still outside looking in — wondering if she is going to forget about them or give their space to some of the new kids on the block like those cute little Perle d’Or roses. Hummmm I still believe there will be room for all of them. 😳
I am rushing to get some of the plants in this week, due to the fact that we are leaving tomorrow to lead a mission trip to the Navajo Nation in Arizona.
Please remember our team in your thoughts and prayers as we go to serve and show love to those who have so little by the world’s standards. We have not been to this area before but those preparing us have told us to think 3rd world conditions.
We intend to bloom where we are planted this week and hope you do too.
Happy Bloom Thyme Friday
Hey speaking of blooms…. this carpet rose and Señorita Mi Amor Cleome will not stop. Blooming machines! I would highly recommend growing them in your garden next year!
