Decorating is endless.
Cooking never ends.
Gardens are always changing.
And best of all shopping goes on and on!

Hence the name,
Open Ended!

Before we left on vacation I was in a gardening frenzy!
I had this plan to plant every container I had.
I figured that by the time I returned there would
be slim pickin's when it came to finding the plants I like. a maniac I went to all my favorite nurseries,
filled up the car again and again.
Then I planted and Mike{my husband} watered and lugged
my heavy pots around until I found the perfect spot.
{Thank you honey!}

As I left to go on vacation I thought to myself....
"Why do you do this to yourself, Cindy?"
Why make your self crazy!
And then as we came down our lane to our house after vacation,
I thought this is why....

While we were gone it rained quite a bit and
the temperatures were in the 90's.
And... my new plants loved it!

I guess that's why we do the crazy things that we do.

Ya gotta love summertime in the Midwest!

Happy planting everyone....
