We've had a hot few weeks here in Minnesota, and daily watering the flowers in my pots has been my morning routine. I love all kinds of flowers and try new combinations in my containers each year. If I take pics, then I can remember from year to year what did well, and what I'll change up next year. I relish these late summer overflowing containers and the garden that's looking like a tropical jungle!
Warning...photo heavy post. Non-gardeners may get bored. Fellow gardeners...good entertainment.
As I was scrubbing up this cute set of vintage picnicware, I was struck by the use of advertising on this supposedly salesman's premium. Advertisers are always trying to reach people where they're at. In our generation, we're seeing ads in bathroom stalls, and corporate sponsors on everything from stadiums to movie placement.
