Bachelor's Button A charming annual that blooms in shades of blue, pink, and purple, bachelor's button is a great choice for hot, dry sites. The flowers are perfect for cut- and dried-flower bouquets. Starting Tips: Plant the seed about 1/8 inch deep; they typically sprout in one to three weeks. You can start it early indoors or sow it directly outdoors in the garden.
Purple... Mother of Blue, Daughter of Gray, the parting wisps of a clear summer's day. Twilight veiling the flowing rills that hover above dun-colored hills. The sparkling tear in an amethyst's eye, dusk in the mountains where shadows lie, cool, and elusive, and soft as a sigh.
Potting Bench out of pallets. Plus....25 more ways of turning pallets into unique pieces of furniture.
Cut the bottom off a plastic pot to contain invasive plants & bury in the ground. I have been doing this for a few years & works great for containing plants that tend to spread, but that I still want to plant in the garden. This also works good for planting a plant in an area that tends to get filled with roots etc. from other plants. I will use a larger pot so that the plant can spread it's roots and grow deeper roots, but keeps other tree roots from choking out the one I planted.
