Fall, Pansies, Drought, etc.


Fall, Pansies, Drought, etc.

As hard as it is to imagine temperatures will start dropping soon as fall has oficially arrived. It’s a great time to replace or add plants, add some winter color with some pansies and other cold loving plants and flowers, and get those flower beds cleaned up. If your home is on the market it is especially important to have great curb appeal. The Patient Gardener can help you with all of that!

Fall is such a great time for arts festivals, State Fair, haunted houses, sausage on a stick, corn dogs, pumpkins, giving thanks, enjoying family, and just having fun without the heat of summer! While I am not a fan of cold weather I will admit this was a brutal summer. Many thanks to our employees who endured long, very hot days in order to keep up with our customer’s needs.

Have you driven over the lake on Hwy 66 lately? It’s an awful sight. You can see the old bridge from 30 or so years ago and practically walk across the lake it is so low. Please remember we are still under Stage 2 water restrictions (posted in an earlier blog). I actually saw someone washing off their entire driveway the other day. It was all I could do not to stop and say “Hey idiot, don’t you know we are in severe drought?” He probably doesn’t care anyway. He is definitely the type you want Code Enforcement to drive by when he is doing something really stupid. OK, enough!!!
