Purchases made

We had a fun day looking around at all of the garden shops. Sadly I couldn't afford to buy any of the plants I wanted to buy. I was drooling over an orange coleus plant called Sonata. It was very striking. I didn't have $8 to buy it. I can't spend that kind of money on an annual!

I didn't end up buying much of anything really. Mostly because we are going to get a couple of good frosts this week, I figure with all of the stress I'm under I really don't need to be piling any more work on myself.

So, without further ado, this is the extent of my purchases today.

Hardly as exciting as you thought it would be, is it?

I am making up my own potting mix this year and I couldn't find vermiculite last time I went shopping.

I wanted to pamper the plants that just went into the ground on Sunday too, so I got a transplant formula for them.

I loved Anna's tilted pot ideas, so I bought some large terra cotta pots and two sections of 2' rebar.

The gray plastic pots are meant to go into a bicycle planter that I have been working on fixing up. I'll show all of my progress on that project once it is finished.

Latly, the lilac was purchased to take the place of the poor arborvitae that ended up getting transplanted (hopefully out of the deer's path for munching) earlier.

I plan on staining this trellis brown. We ordered some hummingbird vines, those little black metal ones just aren't going to do it! I hope to finish this project tomorrow.

Thank you for stopping by. Please leave me a message and a backlink. I'd love to hear your thoughts!
