After seeing the beautiful garden areas of some of yesterday's homes, I have a fresh interest in plants. There were lovely potted plants on front porches, along walkways, and in corners of patios. It made you want to rush out and try nurturing new plants for more blooms throughout autumn. The fall mums of gold, russet, yellow, and orange are starting to appear at stores. I'm thinking of changing out my pink impatiens and geraniums. Another gardening desire I have is to purchase tulip bulbs and have then ready for later planting. If only I had a few more planters...if only there wasn't the matter of expense.
