There haven't been many Garden Tuesdays this year. Oh, sure, we had Blizzard Garden Tuesday, but other than that, I've been pretty slack.
So, when I went down to West Chester for my daughter's baby shower, her husband had two 2' high pillars for me; a couple of guys loaded them into my car to take home. Let me be clear: only one would fit in the trunk. They had to drive the front passenger's seat all the way forward to stuff the second one in behind it. And that's in a Lincoln Town Car. Good thing I insist on driving those big ol' gas guzzlers, or these suckers would still be sitting around 130 miles south of here.
Anyway, after I figured out that I wanted them on my back porch, and bought bowls to set atop them, Shannon went out and bought flowers to plant in said bowls. 9 weeks later, they're still blooming, and have filled in a lot.
Good thing we have a real gardener in our midst, or my pillars would just look silly!
Happy Tuesday, everyone! And Happy August. I hope you're enjoying your summer weather!
