You can bury a lot of troubles digging in the dirt.

Already In From The Garden

It's so humid already! Yuck! I dug four more holes this morning. Three for roses. One for 'Barbara Mitchell' (I think that's it. I should keep up with my daylilies better!) daylily I'm going to move. The holes are on the far side of the pond. I should think of a name for that area. Far Side of the Pond Garden - ha! Anyway, I'm letting the heavy clay dry out some before I plant. Hopefully, by this evening, I'll be able to do it. Evening (7:00 and later) seems the coolest time anyway. I may turn into a night gardener.

I bought plants (trees) from ebay for the first time last night. Such good deals! I hope the quality is good. The place that I bought from is a nursery with a guarantee and good feedback. Everything was cheap, so I'm not too worried. I got my Purple Smoke tree! Also, three Heritage birch trees, a very small Japanese maple (I'd like to grow this in a pot on my deck), and a Paperbark maple. I have my eye on a few other things as well.

My Ashdown rose order is shipping this week!

Someday I'll just sit around in my garden and enjoy. Actually, the fun of it to me is the doing. And like they say, a garden is never finished.
