Months ago the automatic watering system in the front yard stopped watering one of the flowerbeds in front of the apartment. The landlord never fixed it and 2 of the camellias he planted when he bought the place died. The gardeners eventually dug out the dead ones but left the holes. So I thought maybe they were going to plop in 2 new shrubs any day. Well, it's been about six months and we recently found out the landlord is putting the place up for sale. No wonder he stopped taking care of the place. So when we went to Lowe's today I picked up some pansies and johnny-jump-ups and planted those in the gaps, and filled the two holes with the soil I had dug up to plant the bedding plants. Problem solved. And pansies cheer me up. Now I just hope our lead footed neighbors don't squash them when they throw a ball out of bounds.
