While I was away, the planter at school that I have been watering didn’t get watered. Most of the plants did okay, but some of them succumbed to the drought.
I got some replacement plants on Wednesday and planted them yesterday. They were big ol’ overgrown coleus plants from the bargain bin. They are a beautiful fall color, and look so good next to the yellow daisy-like flowers that are already there.
They were a little too big, so I cut some branches off. I decided that instead of throwing them away, I’d put them in water and see if they developed roots.
They were on my desk all day, but turned out to be in the way, so I brought them home. I put them on my little table, and they look so nice. I haven’t bought cut flowers in a while, but I think these fit that role nicely. And they will look good for a long time.
