Here is a meander through the garden looking for pots........
and to see what needs to be brought indoors before the snow flies.
This is a very sorry looking varigated impatients; remnants of too much water from Hurricane Ike. It is supposed to be tall. It grows very tall and that is why I like it so much. It is nameless as my cousin gave it to me and she doesn't remember anything about it except she got it in a garden club exchange.
It needs to come inside to winter over and I need to take cuttings from it. It won't manage all winter in the shape it's in. A few winters ago while I was utilizing the Canadian Health Care System (Bow Down and Kiss the Earth) I gave it to a friend for safekeeping. Alas, she had better things to care for...like nine children. Hey...I've got it good!
Taking cuttings from the unidentified impatients........
and they'll get popped into a jar of water like these geranium starts.
And this trailing geranium comes inside too. First I'll knock off the ladybugs...I mean shake them off...not kill them!
And in comes the Wandering Jew and Swedish Ivy.
And then along came The Cat........
may as well flop down.
right here...because The Cat does not get to come in for the winter.
Yes, we all know you're The Cat.
Now back to the garden.
