I know, it’s been a while. Life’s been hectic and hard this summer, more about it in next week’s Weeknotes post.
My garden is winding down for the year. I’m going to have to dig out the hyssop, as it’s really not doing well, and the liatris, which just gets too top heavy and I can’t be bothered to stake them. So I’ll have some free space in the middle back of the garden next spring for some new plants–by preference, something that flowers in August and September. Looking forward to garden mail this winter and the planning process (which will be upturned by the inevitable trips to the garden center and impulse buys that happen there).
I did manage to get out and pull weeds a few week ago and last week, I swapped out the “welcome” flag for a “love always wins” flag and added a brand new rainbow flag. I really need people to lay off the flamingo jokes–I have two artsy looking flamingoes that I like and that’s plenty. Plastic flamingoes fade pretty badly, pretty quickly, and I don’t want to keep replacing them.
I am contemplating paying someone to clear out the flower bed under our bedroom window and planting peonies there.
Have a great weekend, y’all.
