A good start

Linda has been busy.


Those are just the start. Some have already made it into planter pots, but I don't have nice photos of them yet. But the real deal was yesterday. A well known greenhouse (Sunnyside) has been bought by developers, so everything must go. A lot more plants joined the ones above.

For example, Ito peonies that normally go for $75, are half price. Other similar deals. Let's just say it's a good thing I'm working again. Now she has to revise her plans for the garden to make space for plants that could be there for 50 years. Last night over BBQ rack of lamb, she was discussing what won't make the cut. So hint, if you like some of the plants in the garden, talk to her soon about her list.

The rabbits or deer got at one little bunch of tulips so Linda draped this protective netting over them. It seems to be working so far, but we'll probably have to drape some of it over the other plants as well. The problem is the big bees. They are out and working hard. The small ones can go in and out, but the big one is huge, and has to squeeze in and out. I'd liked the way the light caught the netting, but this time it didn't quite come out the way I had hoped.


And speaking of work, it's going well, though this 40 hour thing is taking a bit of getting used to again. I haven't worked that many hours in a week for several years. This week is, well, busy, doing things that most of my readers would be bored by or not understand, unless you get the joke here, or get excited by this explanation. If so, let me know and I'll elaborate. (Not you Sean, you get it next time we have beer.)

  1. Glad to hear the new gig's going well, Keith. Love all the garden photos!! Ours is just getting started. Looks like we'll finally get some lilac blooms on the tree we transplanted from the country to the city a couple of years ago - just in time to welcome the new owner's! (Yes, you read that right. Stay tuned for more news soon!)
