Well it is that time of year again .. heathers, asters, mums, and purple fountain grass are pulling me in with their magnetism .. Autumn magnetism specifically .. anything to do with this coming time of the year and the big one HALLOWEEN ! .. so my posts will be rather single minded .. or simple minded ?
I found a nice big, healthy, fresh plant .. no feather heads yet .. but that is the best to come, since I'm not ready to change my front step display anyways .. so lots of time yet .. I can't understand the people who are buying pots of mums right now .. they will be bloomed out by the time you want them to shine ! .. Are there people worse than I am about pushing the best of all seasons to come ? .. It boggles the imagination .. maybe they don't think there will be any mums left at a certain point ? .. where were they living last year that they didn't notice a glut of pots on the market for the longest time almost every year ! So I'm not nervous .. I started out with my YOUNG grass .. who has time to age ! ..
I'm tempted by heathers every year though .. 4 years I tried .. 4 years I have failed ... even with the sage advice from my friend in the UK on what heathers WANT .. I think it is one of my black listed plants unknown to me ? .. maybe I can try just one more time ?
