On the Veranda

"Come for Cocktails on the Veranda..."

One of my oldest and dearest friends lives in the kind of place that just begs for a good old-fashioned patio party on a hot summer night. Each year, she decorates the giant porch of this 100 year old mansion with bright red geraniums. This season, she upgraded to self-watering planters.

If you've been dying of the heat, chances are your plants are suffering, too. I sprung for a few of these and I'm thrilled with how well they work. The 1-quart reservoir keeps plants well-watered when life gets so busy you forget about your flowering friends. Find them at Gardener's Supply Company.
