I moved a golden privet shrub here because I liked the golden yellow-green color. I think it will be nice to have some color that will stay all season.
I will keep it trimmed down to about this size. This is another shrub that is easy to move. Again I dug a big hole, filled it with water and then stuck the shrub in. I flooded the area with more water once it was in the ground. So far it's as happy as can be. Way across on the opposite side you can see a couple of tall yellow spots. Those are the Margarite daisies that I told you I was going to move. They were a bit more finicky and I cut a couple of them way back because they were throwing a little snit about being moved--all droopy and sulky.
My Tango lilies called 'Cappachino' just started blooming. I didn't move them.
Around noon I went to the art show on the bay. I bought this lizard.
I decided it was a she and named her Lizzyanne. Unfortunately I was moving the hair allium to this area and I dropped Lizzyanne on the rock paver and she lost her foot. I am just not cut out to be a pet owner! :)
I also spent about three hours cooking - I made sweet/sour pork, rice, chili, and two pans of lasagna. Now I won't have to put much effort into making dinner for the whole week. The chili is still cooling so I am off now to see if it's ready to put away.
