These plants still have not found a home in my Georgia Gardens. They look pretty good here in this picture as if I planted them but not so. They are still in pots waiting for me to get around to putting them into the ground.
As you can see, the Red Rooster's (Crepe Myrtle) are indeed Red after all! They started out a white, then pink then bright deep pink and finally Red! These are my first Red Rooster's so I don't know if this is normal behavior for them or not. I planted two that I shall show you at some point. One will accompany me to Tennessee on my next trip and the other two, well, they will find a hole in my gardens at some point. Probably this fall as it is too stinking hot to plant anything now. Plus we are not having rain and dragging the hose around is getting old. The weatherman says 70% chance today so hopefully, we will get some moisture on the gardens. I am so behind on weed control again. That never ends, rain or not.
We have some family members coming next week for a visit. We are determined to get this renovation completed by then so we can enjoy some Rest and Relaxation! All but the vanity should be finished as our cabinet maker is on vacation. Due to the high humidity, he was not able to get the finish on the wood cured.
I have been cleaning out a closet to make room for misplaced items due to the renovation. Thank goodness we have a ton of storage space in this house. Unfortunately the closet's are up stairs. But we are flexible and will make it work.
Yesterday the washer broke so we had to stop what we were doing and research new washer and dryers. We decided to go ahead and get a dryer as well. We bought them at the same time so figured it was a matter of time before it went on the fritz as well. Funny how things do not last like they use to. Oh, have I said that a lot lately.
Anyway, I am just TOO POOPED TO PLANT, In the Garden...
