It's 72 degrees and muggy. It looks like rain. Monday, they've promised us a whole day of rain. I'm going to have to spend some time today planting out a few things I picked up at basement prices thanks to my boss and Carla.
Orchid Primrose. Primula vialii
It looks best in mass plantings. I have a shady spot in front of the fence along the driveway that's perfect for it. I have 18 of them to plant. I spent less than the price of lunch at McDonald's.
I've also got Salvia leucantha. A customer promised me this last fall. She brought it in on Friday with a bunch of other things.
Daisy Gardenia is blooming. This one is on the rear corner of the house. I can smell it through the open windows of the back bedroom.
Wintersown impatiens. The first to bloom.
The crape myrtle bed is coming along. Pink, white, and purple.
Miniature roses from a Winterswap participant. I'll find somewhere to plant these over the next few weeks.
I'm supposed to help Carla with some wood from a tree taken down this winter that's still in her yard. It's her Birthday too.
1:55pm. Still no word back from Carla. I called her when I got home this morning.
All the plants are in place. Just as I finished, it's started raining. Passing showers should be common the next 4-5 days as we get back to normal weather. The soil is nice and wet. The transplants should get their roots down in no time at all. It's 81 degrees, humid, and raining. I love it.
