A Look Back at the Summer of 2013

The summer gardening seasoning is coming to an end in the Bluegrass. The days are getting shorter and the evenings are getting cooler. The first weeks of summer were very wet here which was good for the hydrangeas and other water loving plants....not so good for the daylilies. The rain also contributed to a bumper crop of weeds. It was a battle to keep the weeds out of the flower beds. Unfortunately, the weeds were victorious!

Here's a review of the 2013 garden:

Garden Center Celebrates 100 Years

Walnut Ridge Garden Center, located in Jeffersonville, Indiana, celebrated it's 100 year anniversary on September 14th. It has been owned by members of the Julius family since 1913. It is my favorite garden center/nursery in the Louisville area. They have a very knowledgeable staff who are always extremely helpful.

This old Ford was parked in front of the building yesterday during the celebration. The sign reads: "Walnut Ridge's First Customer's Car. Due to circumstances beyond their control, they personally could not be with us today."
