Meg brought this aster from her place. It grows to over 6 foot tall and the butterflies love it! Best part is it is very hard to kill, most asters crap out on me. Same aster different lighting with a big mosquito on it. Does anyone know what this is called?
We bought a 6 pack of sweet potato plants and planted them in the garden. I have not grown sweet potatoes since I was a young man, here is the harvest from 6 plants.
We had a Monarch flying about in the yard today, first I've seen here this fall!
Hey I saw a sign along the road today RedDog Nursery was having a plant sale. I followed the signs and found a house with a tent with lots of flowers. Those of you that follow this blog know I'm taken with hellebores. Well they had doubles, 2 year old beautiful doubles for $8 I purchased three of them. These are from Terranova Nursery, the ones I got are Cotton Candy, Painted Doubles and Amber Gem. I'm sure if I'd order any one of these online I'd paid more than $24 with shipping.
Oh and this is my 300th post on this blog, can you believe it?
