sale plants and cool weather
It is still dry here and I am missing the forecast rains, but some sale plants have tempted me. The weatherman is saying 40's for night temps this week. Things are looking better in a wild way if you can ignore the weeds. I have morning glories tangled around weeds that are pretty and the wild ageratum is blooming. I am not ready for it to frost yet. Carthage Lowe's had healthy blooming small sized blue balloon flower plants for a dollar each. I also got a lavendar plant for one dollar but it had some dead branches. At Lowes in Neosho I got heuchera which I don't need since they are so easily propagated. The Palace Purple was a dollar and the Obsidian was 3.50. I wish I had just purchased the (three) Obsidian because the color is red and pretty. After I removed the dead leaves the plants are fine nothing wrong with them. I got a dwarf crepe myrtle Cherry Dazzle or something like that. Pretty soon the crepe myrtles will lose their leaves so I am scouting them out now and will check back later. I don't need any plants but it is fun looking for bargains and I don't spend that much. Half price is too much this time of year but that is what they do until the Christmas tree pressure to clear out. If I pay $1 for a living plant the fun part is worth it. I could go to the new casino but I'd rather get something for my money.
