Even plants have the chip reader on them...what is the world coming to? Like the will be a focal point?
will have to post a pic of my Yucca...thought it was dead..but it's starting up and looks happy in the hottest, driest part of the upper bed! Phormiums are good in drought, right?

apparently not! ...well I didn't exactly try...but it wasn't being spoiled either. A very wet autumn and a very long cold winter would do it, I think.. There are two side shoots! fingers crossed. where will you put the phormium? got pics?

just added one Lori, i put it in my small kitchen rose bed in front of some Davidii budleas, hopefully a bit of a focal point especially in winter and when it gets bigger.
the soil is bonedry again, planting has come to a full stop once more. where did all that lovely rain go, we were supposed to have more rain today and yesterday, in fact showers for the rest of the week but as per usual it all fizzles out before any gets here, nope, i know it upped and went to england, they are so selfish there with their rain ;~))

It just isn't fair, is it? After three days of crystal blue skies we finally have a few clouds today...but the temps are still in the 30's... thankfully the nights are coolish and there is a heavy dew. About 4 or 5 hours of steady rain would be just perfect!
