Never Give Up!

Yesterday I mentioned I take care of the flower gardens while my husband’s domain is the vegetable garden. This year I tried something NEW and got some flowers grown in our high school’s greenhouse. When I bought them, they did warn me not to plant them right away because they were used to the greenhouse and they needed to gradually acclimate to the outside conditions. I followed their advice and planted them a few days later. Well, they promptly died! (Or, at least, they really LOOKED dead!) I never got around to taking them out….and I’m glad I didn’t! Just look at them now! So…note to self…NEVER GIVE UP on seemingly dead annuals and perennials!

What NEW thing did you try this summer?
