You may remember my Wheelbarrow Makeover.
I had cleaned up my rusty old wheelbarrow. It has wood sides
that had rotted away and my husband replaced them.
I was so excited and planted it with
of Zinnia's. I had never planted them before
but had seen the gorgeous blooms to be
over at Bird Nest Cottage
and was inspired to give it a try!
I new I had started them too late, as hers were already
quite tall at the time. But I thought
~What the heck~
and gave it my best! Lots of water because of the hot
dry weather we've experienced this summer.
I had lots of green appearing.
Turns out most of them were weeds!
This is all I got out of
2 packets of seeds
Lots of bare spots....
just a few blooms!
Oh well, maybe next year!
I have to remember to start earlier.
Well, on to mums they are starting to appear
in our stores around here lately!
Have you purchased your mums yet??
Falls just around the corner!
