If you're looking for creative Halloween costumes, why not express your obsession for plants and all things relating to gardening? At least that's my ideal when it comes to Halloween costumes.
Halloween costumes I've actually worn in the past that you might like to try:
1. Black-Eyed Peas. Dress in green and tape a label from a box of frozen peas to yourself. Then black out your eye with some eyeliner.
2. Stalk of corn. Tease your hair up really high- this works best if you have long blonde hair- and spray with gold glitter. Dress in beige and tape leaves to yourself made out of golden tissue paper.
Any other fun ideas?
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?
Last weekend, I was feeling inspired to finally rid myself of the Nandina that had been driving me crazy since we first moved in our house. These plants are invasive in the worst way- plus I don't think they're all that attractive, either.
Several hours later, I had just three bushes cut down and hauled away. The ground was so hard that I finally gave up on the roots. In the above picture, you can see the gap I made in hedge on one side of the fence.
So I asked my husband for help digging up the roots. Several hours later, he used the chain saw to cut down every last bush. But the roots are still there. Meaning I can't actually plant anything.
And of course I have several plants waiting in the driveway with no place to go. Doesn't every gardener?
