While I was busy working in the kitchen yesterday afternoon, a strong wind kicked up and lasted well into the night. Around 9pm, a very short but potent rain shower came through. The wind died down overnight. Of course it claimed a victim.
I guess it's only natural. I collected my first pineapple salvia seeds from that plant not more than a week ago. I put all 4 in good soil, afternoon sun, and let mother nature do the rest. At least one germinated. Seed to seed.
The brugs in the perennial bed are blooming. Standing in the driveway, being mindful of hummingbirds doing their morning fly-by, it's all you can smell. Even the tea olives are overwhelmed.
While waiting for drywall compound in the kitchen, I outlined the meadow garden. I hope the rain didn't wash away the glysophate I sprayed.
It's 43 degrees this morning. The cat is still on the end of the bed refusing to put her feet on the cold wood floors. She's such a diva.
9:26am - 56 degrees. Scattered seeds in the crape myrtle bed, verbena bonariensis, purple foxglove. Nigella and larkspur was scattered in the perennial bed. I want to scatter poppy seeds, but the package says to sow in late winter in zone 7, Flander's poppies.
Made a new list of items for the meadow bed. Salvia subrotunda, cosmos, agastache, poppies, tickseed.
