In the shape of an X

That's what the suntan lines on my back are....

It was a gorgeous day today, highs in the upper 70s, I think. I headed to Home Depot and Lowes when the Rabidpug Collective invaded to play D&D. I think I went a little wild.

But was I really suposed to resist a Cecile Brunner climbing rose? She's so pretty.

Planted dayliles and more daylilies on the front hill. The daylily sale from B and D Lilies is amazing...I've gotten a total of three dozen daylilies at a fraction of the normal retail cost. And they've been amazingly huge divisions, too.

Added mountain sage and zinnias in between the daylilies (which may or may not bloom this summer, but they'll be pretty foliage), a couple bloody bloody mary geums and was happy to see that the dahlia tuber that I planted late is pushing up foliage!

Redid the front porch pots with happy pink geraniums and purple alyssum, added purple verbena ground cover to replace the old overgrown borage, and lots more.

And best of all, the guys moved the poor bedraggled banana from its too windy location to a happier spot. Now it'll have a chance to become a big happy banana tree.

Time for a shower, application of lotion and bed.

How long until the next three day weekend?

July 4
For most people, the next 3-day weekend is July 4th.
Four weeks.

For those people working 4-10's, their next 3-day weekend is next weekend *ducks*

I planted geums last year and they got HUGE! I ended up digging them out and giving them to a friend who had space for them. Nice and fuzzy, though... good alternative to poppies.

I have several in the back yard, both yellow and red, and love 'em, so when I saw a variety I didn't have, I just had to have them.

The ones in the back yard are just about ready to divide, again. :)

The hill is going to be so pretty though, Mountain sage, lavender, loosestrife, phlox, lilies, dahlias, geum and two kinds of daylilies, Corrytown Dance and Ginger Peachy. Then california poppies and nasturtiums on the lower part of the hill.
