My plants have been neglected for a few weeks now, leaving them to fend for themselves and apparently that's what they did. These are my little container gardens at the beginning of summer and now at the end. It is interesting to see how some plants survive the hot heat and thrive while others die and are taken over by their neighbors. My favorite is that bottom bird feeder that is made out of a mix of left over plants from the season.
It is so nice that the mornings are cool and crisp now. That means that mums and kale are at the stores and it is time once again for fall plantings. To get a jump start on autumn, here is an old post I did on fall container garden plant choices.
