Re: Restraint

Well, I didn't party - except a burger at my sister's Sunday cuz my nephew
was home - but I didn't get as much done at home as you, Donna.  I spent
most of my time at the MG nursery.  8 hrs Friday (I worked Sat) another 4
hours Sunday and 5 hrs today.  However, I did get one small garden redone.
This is on the south side of my house.  I dug out a variegated red-twig
dogwood and a Diane Rose of Sharon and put in a bed of mostly items that
were given to me.  A Penstoemon from someone on the Santa Rosa forum,
Turkish Speedwell from the Hort Ed, a Phlox pan Starfire from a friend, and
3 kinds of Crocosmia and some glads from friends on this list.  I am hoping
that this position will provide more warmth for the Crocosmias.  I have had
glads survive the winter in this spot, so maybe I'll get lucky.  Thanks so
much to all of you.

neIN, Z5
