I hope your world is filled with
sunshine and beautiful blossoms.
The cool nights are starting to cause my impatiens leaves to turn yellow. Just a note here, if you ever wonder what variety of flowers do well growing in the shade or in a pot in the shade, impatiens are the way to go. I discovered their shade loving this year. I originally planted these two plants in the flower bed, but they about melted away in the sunshine. I hadn’t realized that the sunshine would do that much harm to them. I transplanted them in to pots and set them on our table on the back porch. They have grown and flourished. I plan to buy a few of them next year. We enjoy having flowers blooming on the porch and these impatiens have lasted the entire season.~*~
My basil is looking well. I transplanted it to a larger pot.
I set it outside when the weather allows and bring it in at night.
I’m happy with it’s progress so far.~*~
Earlier this Summer I tossed some of the dead-marigold-blooms in the end of one of our small flowerbeds. I thought nothing of it until some little plants started growing. Wow, they look better and are thriving better than the original ones we bought from the nursery. I think that’s pretty neat.~*~
I thought of the first ‘Ice Age’ movie when I
saw this lovely dandelion bloom.
I smiled, took a photo and wondered if
“it is the last dandelion of the season.”
If it’s Autumn in your region,
are the flowers still blooming
or has it been too cold?
Dandelions are some of my favorite wildflowers. Dandelions are supposed be healthy to eat. I personally have never eaten them. If I ever take a hankering too eat a dandelion, I’m going to read as much as possible to try and make sure that there hopefully wouldn’t be any negative reactions or side effects.
Have you ever eaten dandelions?
