As I water my flowers these days, I’m so pleased to see the impatiens that were given to me as a birthday gift back in April are still blooming and looking beautiful! Since I don’t have the greenest of thumbs…this makes me super happy, as I’m notorious for killing plants. I either over-water them, or forget to water them entirely. I need to set an alarm or something. In addition to that, I’m never sure how much to water them. Seriously, it shouldn’t be this complicated! I love it when it rains…I don’t have to figure out that ‘how much’ question, and, they always look awesome afterward!
Now that it’s fall, I’m loving the vibrant yellow mums that add a bright splash of color to our deck. They say they’re easy to grow…hmmm, I’ll be the judge of that! Hopefully, they’ll be ‘Cathi-proof’ and survive as long as my impatiens are!
Any suggestions for other colorful, easy-to-grow fall plants for Texas Zone 9 would be really appreciated!
