Yesterday I had planned to head out to a nursery to look for some plants. While I was getting ready to leave I decided the weather was a bit too rainy and breezy to take my little gardener outside to walk around the large nursery. Instead we went to the local Home Depot to look around.
A few things I realized yesterday.
- Home Depot has a plant clearance rack with pretty good deals.
- It was windier than I thought.
- Our fence blew down.
- I'm getting better with power tools.
- Our view just improved.
- The weekend plans of spreading compost just changed.
I also picked up a couple of Wallflowers (erysimums). One variegated
and one I think is 'Bowles Mauve'.
I've seen them on some blogs lately and remembered I needed to replace the ones that died last year. They are known as short lived perennials that will "bloom themselves to death".
I also found this planter, what I'll use it for I don't know.
When I got home our power was out and I realized our fence had almost blown over. We have planned to replace it soon, but not quite yet. I found some plywood and a power drill and did the best I could to temporarily fix it.
Guess "the muscle" will be putting fence posts in this weekend instead of spreading compost.
I also noticed that a tree in the schoolyard blew down. It didn't hit anyone or anything luckily, and now we have a bit of a view. I think the Cascade mountains might even be visible on a really clear day now.
Glad my motto is "Life is what happens when you're busy making plans."
