Re: head count

Lurking here in Sierra Foothills in California -- occasionally put in 2
cents -- just astounded at the knowledge, dedication, and physical labor of
some of you on this list and always learn a lot.  After 3 years in this
house am hoping to hire some young masculine muscle this spring (soon!) to
help me put in a perennial garden in virgin, rocky, clayey "soil" here on
top of my hill.  I did plant a pistache tree (beautiful fall color) and a
crepe myrtle last fall.  The daffodil bulbs I planted have not yet come
up -- have to investigate -- am hoping gophers did not get them, tho they
are supposed not to like them they might eat anything up here.
    Meanwhile the native plants are quite beautiful, including toyon, two
kinds of coffeeberry (Rhamnus spp.), black oak, a couple scrub oaks
(evergreen), various ceanothus ("California lilac", one common blue one, one
common white one), incense cedar, and ponderosa pine, not to mention the
ubiquitous manzanita and a certain amount of nefarious imported scotch
broom.  I hope to get some California poppy established here as there does
not seem to be any on my property.  I do have yerba santa, a tall gangly
plant that the native Americans made tea from.
