Yes I know...it's the middle of June..... what was I thinking?? I just couldn't pass up this bushy coreopsis (cream brulee). In fact, I couldn't pass up 3 of them! It's really hard for me to go to a garden center this time of year and see all the mature flowers--no more cute little bedding plants--and not buy one. This pretty plant is suppose to bloom all summer. I have 3 sunny spots that are empty, soooo...I just had to buy it!
I also visited a garden center in East Dallas that I had never been to before. I love sedums, and I did have an empty pot that would be perfect...so, yep, I just had to buy them! This is "dunce cap",
"dragons blood" and "seiskianum spirit."
I also found some great garden incense. It is a mixture of citronella, rosemary, thyme and brazilian andiroba. It smells wonderful and burns for several hours. Hopefully it might deter any mosquito that is thinking of attacking my husband.
I am always dreaming of new beds, more flowers and new plants. And I guess I will always find something new to take home..even if it is the middle of June!
