Re: yesterday in the garden...

Thanks Bonnie- I just posted a pic of the trough garden AND the armoire. My solution to the problem was to say "can I borrow your car, I need to get some more bags of soil"- then went and bought the armoire, unloaded it and got it in place before he even knew I bought more than groceries. I'm so glad I got it- it is just beautiful.

With all my plants in and not much weather or time to do more, we put up a
temporary fence for the puppies.  They are getting too big and bold to be
chasing when they go out before and after meals and before bedtime.  Bill
threw out his back.  My arthritis kicked in.  It sounds like we'll all be
partaking of the heating pad, Theresa.  You just happened to get a whole lot
more done than the two of us did!  (Well, one of us had to watch and play
with the puppies!)

As for that armoire, if it is built anything like the heirloom varieties,
you can point out the quality craftsmanship and remind him that new looks
don't always make something better.  (He does understand the concept of
heirloom and antique doesn't he?)  You could point out a bare space on the
wall just begging to be filled with something of substance that will stand
the test of time.  As industrious as you are, Theresa, I know you'll come up
with something just right.

Subject: [CHAT] yesterday in the garden...

It finally stopped raining by 9 am- so I got out and rearranged a bunch of plants that had gotten too big, didn't like where they were, didn't look quite right, too tall, too short, etc. Not done, but a big dent in the project. Sore back today! Dug up a bunch of ornamental ginger that were destined to take over the world. Left a few plants and will do a better job tying them up, so they don't flop on everything else when they get so heavy. I also got online and ordered two majonias- Arther Menzies and Charity. One for the back corner (Arthur)- they Anna's hummingbirds are supposed to love the flowers (and it was onsale at Heronswood). The Charity is for the front corner near a climbing rose that is just canes at the bottom. Charity is also fragrant and my office window opens up to that garden. A little early christmas shopping of me! Now if I could only convince my husband to get a lovely armoire I want in the bedroom..... It is antique-looking and has engraved brass plating on the door. His comments- "it looks kind of old".
So, I have my work cut out..

Happy gardening all-
