It's always tough for me to get rid of perfectly good annuals at the end of the season, just so the next season's annuals can get a head start. I've noticed I've started to get passive-aggressive and just stopped watering a couple of the countainers.
I bought another flat of violas and pansies today, so tomorrow the scraggly morning glories are going next. Above I posted a picture of a flower when the plants were in their full glory a few weeks ago. It seems like they are staying open later now. Is that due to the cooler weather?
