  •  It's 4:30a.m. and cold. (8+ / 0-)

    It's only 15 out there now, but we're looking at 47 for a high today.  That will easily get rid of the slight dusting of snow from yesterday.

    Not going to the senior center today.  My ride is busy and I'm playing hooky.  The Pakistani man who owns the little store across the street wants me to plan a garden for the space on the side of the building.  He and his brother totally redid the store and made it beautiful.  He wants the outside to be great, too.

    It's been a while since I've had a garden space, so I need to do some research.  He wants color all the time, so I'll need to find perennials starting with forsythia and ending with asters.  In the near term, we'll fill in with annuals until the others get established.  He's got some bridal wreath that someone planted way too close to the sidewalk.  I'm debating moving them now (they were just planted last summer) or waiting a year or two.  Anyone got an idea?

    This is going to be great fun.  It's been 14 years since I had a garden.  :-)

      What a fun project.   Get some flower catalogs or books from the library, and start planning.  Enjoy!

      Have a good one.  

      I am a work in progress. Still.

        is a big gardener and she brought me stacks of catalogs.  I don't think the shop owner really cares about expense as much as he cares about quick results.  Heavens!  I get to garden and spend someone else's money!
