I just got home from the store. It's my day off, but I had to find out what the verdict was. Store Manager told me it looked really good. I'm pleased. I also emailed the Realtor.
At $2.50 a pop, I couldn't pass up some new azaleas that arrived this week. They're on sale.
In the yard, I have a few shrubs starting to bloom. This one is either Delaware or Glacier White. I have them both. It's not that important to me. They're white.
A mangled pink one that was here when I bought the house. The long hot dry summer baked this poor azalea. I've mulched heavily with shredded pine already this year.
Lavender Formosa is about to pop. This one should be a huge shrub.
Before the rains of the past week (near 2"), I fertilized all the azaleas, camellias, and tea olives. I bought peat moss to use for planting these new azaleas. I made mistakes with the first azaleas I planted here. I'm trying to correct those now and actually practice what I preach.
The skies are clearing. I'm about to head outside and give home to my new purchases. I'll save one for the hole where the realtor's sign is. It's a breezy, brisk 52 degrees.
