The two bags only covered the front bed, I’ll have to get more, mulch, at the evil Home Despot to do the rest.
I decided to go ahead and run my little planting in pots experiment on the one bed the gophers have not invaded, so I pulled out the deformed cauliflower but left the pretty purple Sweet Peas and added a Purple Pentstemon, not in it’s pot, (it’s the one being sacrificed like the guest actor in Star Trek) and some Calibrachoa and a Gaura with variegated leaves, all in pots. We’ll see how that turns out.
Tearful slashed the sides and bottoms of the pots without losing any fingers. I’ll need mulch for this bed too.
I took some pictures of gardens in town on our walk this morning.
The Ollalieberry Inn’s garden is looking great these days, and so is the Dentist’s house…
Always looks neat and beautiful, and I’ve never seen anyone tending it. They must have night gnomes.
The roses manage to bloom under the shade of the trees, though they are a bit rangy. Still, no black spot or rust.
I remain hopeful the ennui has passed and that I will plant something again…
