This summer for the first time, I invested in containers for flowers, both front and back yard. My thinking? I wanted more freedom from weeding.
But uh oh. Freedom from weeding meant becoming a slave to watering!
In the backyard, I planted two half whiskey barrels with petunias, verbena, and geraniums. Pretty at first. One day without water in this heat and my whiskey barrel of flowers turned into a crispy critter.
Guess there’s no easy road to a beautiful garden.
