Lunchtime in the garden
My favorite plant sale is fast approaching and this year I will be ready. I typically procrastinate and go plant shopping without a list and without a clue. I wander through the stalls completely overwhelmed and without any funds because I haven't prepared.
But this year will be different. I have cleared out the beds and noted holes. I am getting rid of plants that having been lingering for too long in the garden (wild daylilies, black-eyed susans, blackberry lilies) taking up valuable real estate. I have researched and made a list. And most importantly, I have squirreled away some money.
Here's the list so far:
Lavender "Grosso" (5)
Lady in Red hydrangea
Of course there will be other purchases - the kids and Peter will pick out some veggies and I'll probably fall for something pretty and cheerful for the shade. I can't wait! If you're in Richmond this Saturday, grab a wagon for your plants and head to Maymont!
