It's Sunday. Another month and I can create the full year of pictures. The circle bed feels very empty without the Thundercloud Plum.
Oh, what to plant here?
Some pictures were taken yesterday. Like the dianthus pinks maiden that are blooming again.
The "orange" rose.
And a camellia. I thought this was C. japonica, but it's got to be sasanqua, right? Where's Nell?
I planted a few plugs of Little Bluestem in the meadow garden. I hope it does take over.
7 lantana cuttings got potted this morning.
Two white, 5 Miss Huff. I'm starting to think the seeds I got were mislabeled. Miss Huff is supposed to be sterile. So maybe this isn't Miss Huff after all, but another lantana. That's fine. I like the flowers.
I've spread some broken bags of mulch on the rear bed where I pulled out ivy yesterday, half price and all. I'll spend most of the day today raking leaves in Larry's yard and shredding them. I'll be mulching the north beds where hosta, ferns, and cherry laurels live. I'll scatter a little here and there around the house too. I think I may just use the lawnmower to collect them into rows. There's a LOT of leaves out there in his yard.
It's 48 degrees with a high of 78 in the forecast. A bagel and coffee before heading out.
1:13pm - I've collected and bagged 3 sacks of leaves from Larry's yard. The sack is a queen sized bed sheet folded in half and sewn together. I put one against the stone wall on the north side of the house. The other two were spread in the back yard behind the upper potager and over the mulch I spread this morning. I just think it's more consistent looking.
While cutting the grass (mulching leaves), I noticed that I have defined edges. I like edges.
The high has been raised to 84 degrees. It's 72 and sunny.
