SHOW & TELL FRIDAY
More participants here
This week I am proud to show you my garden. I have to admit that I had never a green thumb. I found gardening rather boring. But since I am blogging and see so many beautiful garden pictures, I suddenly felt inspired and planted for the second time petunias in pots which stand in front of our house and along the entrance during spring and summer. Unfortunately I didn't count with these lovely creatures called snakes !
and that's what they did !
I declared war put a product and collected the corpses. My petunias survived, but became very skinny and now really ugly. So for the 1st of October I decided to replace them with some autumn flower decoration.
I planted decorative cauliflowers and added some pumpkins. This pot stands besides our mail box.
on the little wall besides the house, I put this
and along the entrance to our house these little yellow flowers which will become bigger I hope. I think they are asters, but I am not sure. I bought them because I have been told that they last until frost. Names are not important to me.
My work of course was supervised by my cat Arthur. He loves when people work outside.
