Camelia in the evening light. This is my favourite flower picture from this season.
For those who know me, it’s no secret that I don’t like gardening. I love having a garden and I enjoy watching things grow, seeing the bees and the birds, smelling the heavenly scent of lilac and roses. I just don’t like the work.
I have purple and white lilacs and when the windows are open, their scent wafts through the house. amazing
So, a garden is a thing of beauty and a job forever, so if you have one, you have to do some work. I try to balance the pain of weeding with the joy of planting and yesterday, was a joy day.
But imagine my surprise when I found a plant that brings together two joys: gardening and thrift.
This little beauty is called, you guessed it, ‘thrift.” I had to have it and since I got it at Costco, it was even cheap.
isn’t it pretty? I planted it yesterday and the bees are already all over it. love that.
What’s your thrifty gardening tip?
