End of Month View

I have been absent from the blogosphere for several weeks due to moving and getting settled in our new retirement apartment. My “garden” now consists of half a dozen pots with annuals on our screen porch. I do, however, have a small token to offer as part of the End of the Month View, sponsored by  Helen the Patient Gardener .

A colorful hibiscus:

And a few annual vincas.

My choices are few, but they bring the Arranger and me much joy.

    Hi there, sure have missed your posts. I hope you are enjoying your new home. There are beautiful sunflower fields down Providence Road from you on the right. They are almost to the Vegetable Stand right before you get to Waxhaw😱. You’ll love them.


  3. I would imagine you really miss your gardens but I hope this next phase of life is relaxing and finds you exactly where you want to be! There’s a lot to be said for simplifying!
