I planted morning glories three years ago, and they've come back every year since then. They tend to take over the flowerbed, but they're so pretty I have a hard time getting rid of them.
I planted sunflower seeds in pots on the deck this year. The first one has bloomed finally and has already attracted a little butterfly.
I bought two combination planters for on the deck this spring. I like them there because they attract butterflies and hummingbirds. I remembered to fertilize them this summer and they're still looking pretty good.
Still no sewing here. It's been three months now without a stitch. Well, I have done some mending, but I don't think that really counts! LOL
