The fleurs on my patio are still going gangbusters. If you look closely at the impatiens below, you can see a boxwood peeking out the top. That was my bright idea this spring, plant boxwood with impatiens surrounding it. Well, that didn’t work out so well, did it? The flowers just totally outgrew the boxwood.
And hubby has been busy getting Butterbean winterized. He has an area to escape to where he can get away from the elements, and we will tent the sides for him soon so the air doesn’t get to him. Then buy him a winterized water bottle and a heating pad and he’ll be good to go. The herbs are still growing, there will be fresh sage and thyme at our house this Thanksgiving. Hopefully I can winter my rosemary over again, just depends on how harsh the weather is.
Poor hubby has a job ahead of him, disposing of all these plants and ferns and raking the leaves. We usually wait until the frost nips the plants. It’s too bad somebody can’t use ferns. We have so many and they are just huge. It’s such a shame to throw them in the trash. *sigh*
