Container plants can add magic
to the summer garden!
All right, I admit it, I buy way too many plants! But, when I go to an arboretum sale and there are a slew of exotic annuals staring me in the face, I just can't help myself! Containers of lush foliage and fragrant flowers bring me so much pleasure. If only, I had a conservatory to grow them in during the winter. This year, as in years past, I'll drag as many pots as I can into the house and place them in front of my patio doors where the sun comes from the southwest. Some survive well enough to take cuttings as spring approaches.
Gardening is the best therapy in the world.
