The Last of Summer
I know Summer is over but no one has told my backyard deck.
I just love sweet potato vines. I planted just three little plants in each corner planter - two of coleus and one of sweet potato and look at how it's grown over the summer!
Usually, I plant sweet potato vines in the front flower beds too
but didn't this year because I knew I was going to get a new roof and didn't want them trampled.
But these survived just fine...so perhaps I should have.
A new follower of my blog, Janet of The Gardners Cottage read my last post where I was
contemplating what to do about the landscaping at the front of the house.
She directed me over to
Tara Dillard's blog.
I'm so glad she did. It's full of wonderful garden and landscaping ideas.
I will definitely be reading through all of it. I'm hoping it will help me get my front landscape together.
I realize my back deck is kind of wild and out of hand.
I'm not saying it's perfection in anyway shape or form.
If I had some patio furniture...this plant life would have to get under control
but since I don't have any furniture because I haven't been able to afford any...
