Gives Zoey bags under her eyes!
After spending three hours last evening in the garden, digging and moving plants, wouldn't you think I would need a full night's rest?
I thought so, too, but I woke up at 2:00 a.m. At 2:45 a.m. I was still awake, so I got up, made coffee, and read blogs for the past 2 hours.
It was quite enjoyable, but now I will be tired all day.
I have a lot of work to do in the gardens today.
I am in one of those periods when everything looks run down and all I want to do is grab a shovel and remove plants! It happens every year at this time.
When you have a LOT of the same plant, they all die at roughly the same time. Everything starts to look like this:
I need to cut down tons of Shasta daisies and remove quite a few orange daylilies.
It's 5:00 a.m. right now. By 6:00 a.m. it will be light enough and I will be out there.
While some plants die, others are born. I did have two morning glories bloom this week. These plants self seeded in my hibiscus plants. They have been doing so for two years now. I just let them climb their way through. I like the purple shades with the orange/red of the hibiscus.
Let the Basting Begin! - I am using my dining room table to baste this big one -- it's about 105 x 105 inches (king size). It's been a while since I've finished one this big.
