Second Try on Another Front

 
Talk about second chances! Earlier in the summer, Joshua gave me a New Guinea Impatiens with beautiful red-orange blossoms. I added it to my collection on the deck, and quickly learned the soil it was in was so poor it dried out instantly, and the plant drooped and the blossoms fell off. (sad face). That was weeks ago.

But given enough time, it recovered, and is going to give me a few happy weeks before frost.

Glad yours survived. Our pots on the deck were terrible this year, and we dumped them early.

Thanks, Chuck- it's the only thing that bloomed, so I'm happy to have it. The succulents are consistently attractive, but a splotch of color is nice too

rainfield- the color is intense

Ann- what I need is more patience with myself

Gnome- it should have been transplanted into better soil long before I got it, but o well.

What a nice surprise...especially since it was so unexpected. Good thing you didn't throw the shriveled plants out.
