Gardening is a creative release for me, it feeds me like creating my art. But my days of ordering flora online and at local garden centers are coming to a screeching halt. I'm a bonafide New Englander now and "making do".
I'm making do by painting older planters, buying used planters, finding cheaper plants and garden accents on Craigslist, Ocean State Job Lot and through my husband's pals. I was a little too Hosta happy in the past two years, and our yard loves these shrubs. It's almost like my yard is an adolescent breaking out in Hostas instead of zits. So I'm digging many up to replace the awful ivy that climbed up the front of our antique home winding it's pointy leaves under our clapboards. Hostas and a few other plants will go there instead.
