I've been busy planting flowers in my gardens. My goal is to have decent looking gardens for my daughter's October wedding in our backyard.
I planted some Dahlia bulbs and I needed a way to mark them until they are big enough to not be mistaken for a weed. *Sometimes my family helps me weed and they've helpfully pulled out real plants instead of weeds. Oops!
Because the other perennials are rather tall, I needed a much taller marker than the typical small tags you can buy. I grabbed a few mini clay pots and topped some plant stakes with them. Then I wrote on the pot with a wax marker.
This marker is labeled "Vemeer" so I will know what color the Dahlia will be.
It looks like I'm not the only one who likes the pots. This little dragonfly likes the tall perch I've provided for him.
