When I took the trash out this morning I looked across the road at the front ditch.....this is my kudzu! Grandpa Otts and a blue morning glory run amok! This is why I never plant them anymore. I did this deliberately in the ditch and I hope it runs willy nilly along it.
Did you ever see anything so lush....ditch with no additional anything.
And this is why I never plant a morning glory anywhere on the farm anymore.
I planted my leftover lavender vinca by the back porch door. Then some of my favorite petunias came up beside it. I love the colors together. There is also a self-seeded Jewel of Opar on the left. This is where I planted lettuce seeds a week or so ago. The only one that came up was the old standby Black Seeded Simpson.
I wish more of the darkest petunias had been open this morning. They are the ones that look so good with the lavender color of the vinca.
These three annuals are very good ones for hot and dry weather. I grow the vinca from seeds and the others reseed them selves annually so, in essence, are considered perennials by me. I wouldn't be without either.
I originally wrote this August 30...it is still hot and dry but is supposed to be out last really hot day for a while. I hope it is true. Still no rain.
Note: I knew this would happen. The country road crew came by and mowed right up to the mailbox! Oh well.................
