I hate the heat! I may have mentioned this a time or fifty. This forecast makes me want to give up all will to live...
That being said, for some reason, I decided to do a little gardening today. I have had some bad luck with the flowers that I planted in my front yard this summer. Bad luck is putting it mildly...They look like crap. While most all of them look like crap, I decided to pull up the crappiest of the crap and replace them. I hope to Miraclegrow the others and bring them a little more life.
My flower bed is so hard to describe to the people at the nursery that they finally suggested I experiment with a light meter. Before doing that, I think I'm going to try and photograph my front bed every 30 minutes tomorrow and then I can use the photographs to figure out the sun exposure vs. the shade.
This is what I finally settled on buying...
I thought they were pretty and I liked the colors...
I figured with these, you aren't dependent on something blooming.
As long as they have leaves, they should look good.
And mostly, I liked the name. They're called Perilla Magilla. Perilla Magilla! Perilla Magilla!
It's so fun to say over and over again!
I decided to show y'all a picture of them today since based on my gardening luck this summer, they will likely be the newest version of crap in about a week!
