My mom was visiting for the weekend, and we decided to put in the side garden.  Unfortunately it’s still a little early and tends to just barely freeze at night, so we have to tuck them in.  It should just be another week or two before we can leave it uncovered through the nights, because it’s a real pain, but it’s worse to find dead plants.


We also salvaged this old waterer that happened to be on the property and turned it into a planter.


With a wire brush, some elbow grease and a can of rust-paint, it turned out lovely!


You can hardly see most of the bedding plants amongst the straw.  Give it a couple of weeks though, and I expect an explosion of green.
