Every two weeks Bloggers unite for a day to write about a communal topic. This week LetsBlogOff wanted to talk about flowers!
I take care of a friends cat when she goes out of town and Easter weekend was one of those times. I have written about her home before here. Friday evening when I walked through her back gate I immediately inhaled a delightful whiff of jasmine. Between the smell and the visual my whole body just relaxed.

When I arrived back home I saw this. I have been walking past these dead mums since last November.
How hard is it to go to a nursery or even a box store and pick up a flowering plant?
It took a 3 day weekend but now I see this and it looks a lot better. I bet my neighbors think so too!
Part of the issue is that my front porch faces West and the amount of sun it receives in the late afternoon wilts the best of plants. After killing many many plants I now keep a watering can filled with water on the front porch. Of course that didn't help the mums.
Check out what my fellow LetsBlogOff gardeners have to say on the subject!
