One quick garden tip to share on this frosty Friday – ornamental grasses are easy to maintain and worth planting for accent and year-round interest. In the case of Ben, it’s a good spot to hide. Keep ornamental grasses in mind when putting your spring planting list together.
And just to follow up with yesterday’s giveaway of the colorful children’s book, Miss Lady Bird’s Wildflowers. The contest is complete and the winner is in. As Frank A. Clark once said, “It's hard to detect good luck - it looks so much like something you've earned.” So check out today’s winner on our Facebook page. It was a toss-up. If you entered, the winner will be announced at noon.
Have a great Friday. And if holiday shopping is still on your list to do, post your favorite stocking stuffer for the garden lover. Books are always wonderful for wintertime reading. And consider planting ornamental grasses. You’ll be sure to have outdoor winter interest in your garden, too. Here’s a Better Homes and Gardens list of the top 17 for you to peruse. http://www.bhg.com/gardening/flowers/perennials/ornamental-grasses/
Have a great Friday and get ready for winter! It’s just one week away.
