Hello my poppets – I hope you will forgive my recent neglect. I’m told Mercury is retrograde, for you astrology buffs, which apparently causes everything to go to hell in a hand basket, and it has been the god’s honest truth around here. Supposed to clear out in 10 days or so – keep your fingers crossed!
Looking forward to this weekend, because it is the king daddy weekend of plant sales! The Lovely Miss Z and I have tickets to the fancy pants preview sale for the Master Gardener program – they get you drunk so you buy more plants, which is pretty brilliant!
Then Saturday morning the family and I will be heading for Kubota Gardens’ annual sale, where I’m told you can get some excellent bamboo, Japanese maples and other cool Asian plants. According to Ciscoe Morris, local garden guru, the selection will be even better this year since the Parks department donated plants from one of its closed parks.
I doubt we’ll make it to the Tilth sale, since Miss Z and I hit the early one in March and I have NO room for more edibles, unless I take over some of the beds, which may happen.
The weather looks promising for both yard work and cocktails. I am also seriously considering finally replacing the camera so I can get some photos of the new baby plants! And I WILL get those plants labels done, I swear.
And now, apropos of nothing (and because I can’t take new photos yet), here is a photo of Jack, the day we brought him home.
