Heat-proof gardening

DSC00932Others may be dragging hoses through their flower beds trying to keep those blooms blooming, but I’m happy to report I’ve discovered a new heat-proof gardening technique that would make my mom (but not my late mother-in-law) roll over in her grave.   Silk Flowers.

Gracing my front stoop is an ever-fresh collection of blossoms that look perky from the curb in any weather. They give the impression on a quick drive by, that I have, in fact, gardened.

As a consolation to my green-thumb mom, I’ve stuck them in her umbrella stand. She would at least be happy at least that it’s being used.

And probably astonished that a family of bag worms has nested among the blossoms.  Don’t tell me you can’t fool nature.
