The crime scene. A coleus in critical condition.

Yesterday Stella, a very large Great Dane (not picture to protect her identity), allegedly trampled one of my coleus plants while frolicking about my back yard.

When I stumbled upon this injured plant I let out a Darth Vader-esque, “NooooooooooOOOOOOO!!!”

The coleus in question is a beautiful fire-like pallet of oranges, deep reds, and purple that provide brilliant contrast to the abundance of green along the fence line. I feel I have just enough horticultural acumen to salvage it.

I can’t wait until this is overflowing in a couple of weeks!

I mentioned yesterday that I stopped by Aman’s Farm & Market to buy a new pot for my African Violet. I failed to mention I saw an extremely cool planter on sale on my way to check out.
