plants for the raffle at the first Fall Garden Club meeting. And here
what I found sticking to me.
a six pack of Snapdragons

4 Mums of assorted colors!
Oh and for the raffle: a begonia and a white mum.

And as a side note - no pots came home yesterday, but I suspect more will
shortly. I didn't think to record the names, but a "fleece flower" in ruby
red and an interesting "sunflower" with dark yellow flowers and a red
stems/leaves really caught my eye. Hopefully, they'll be there on Monday.
(it's the weekend and that means hockey, hockey, hockey all the time!)
Yes I know. She doesn't stick around here for long either. She gets
out, and off she goes. But I do like those little pink "hollyhock"
The snaps are the same pink, and a deeper rose pink, and yellow. I
add some pansies/violas tomorrow. (but will I come out with only
or will more sticky pots follow? Who knows!)
Fleece flower? Is that Persicaria? red ones sound pretty. They can
to be a little invasive here. Sunflowers are always great. Hope they
waiting there on Monday for you. Have fun with Hockey
we may get a little rain this weekend (??)

Well, I don't really know what the fleece flower is, other than 4 feet tall
and a great color, but I'll look closely before it comes up. I don't want
another situation like I have now - garlic chives - which add a lovely white
flower this time of year and hundreds of millions of seedling. in the
spring. Runner invasions are more easily handled and can have wonderful side
benefits. A few years back, a friend gave me this wonderful purple leaved
"mad running plant" (his name). Loved the foliage, so I put it on the hill
of the septic system and let it go wild. Mass of great foliage, great yellow
spring blooms and no work to keep it contained. It doesn't like being mowed,
so it doesn't stay in the "lawn" when it creeps that way.
The "sunflower" is coming home no matter what. Also very tall, and it would
like hill worst comes to worst!
