Because I Don't Have Enough Plants Already...

Of course, I'm eyeballing more.... I really, really shouldn't be.

I can't help it. It's a sickness.

I don't even have a place for them...except in pots...I have plenty of room then!

Oh wait, then I have to remember to water them...

And we all know how that goes, don't we?

BUT...HGC is having a 70% off sale.

They will be selling gardenias and yellow bells esperenza, both of which are on my must haves for my landscape for the new house (yes, I realize that I haven't bought the house yet!). Both of which are pretty expensive when not on-sale.

And obviously, I don't have enough plants to take care of as-is.

But, how can you resist these pretty faces? I have settled on a yellow, red, and white theme for the gardens. Especially since it will incorporate Carolina Jessamine, which is the namesake for this blog and the current gardens.

The players in the new garden:


Knockout Roses-Single Red

Yellow Bells Esperenza


Carolina Jessamine

Confederate Jasmine
The fun thing about this is that I have TIME. All of the plants are drought-tolerant, which means that they will survive me and my landscape watering habits. Some are even Texas natives. And I can arrange, re-arrange, and dream all I want. And take care of plants in pots until my dream becomes reality.
