Did a very bad thing and just had to go to the local nursery. :-) Well the excuse was that I had no success with the short marigold seeds that I planted that were to go into the pots and garden with the tomatoes. I had great success with the tall variety—crackerjack I think—but I really wanted some short ones. Anyway I will take a pic later, of the new Dutch iris that I just couldn’t leave without—‘Lion King. Of course I had to bring home some ’Black Dragon’ coleus—I am a sucker for coleus.
I should also confess to the heuchera ‘Melting Fire’ and ‘Ruby Bells’ and the dwarf Lady’s Mantle and the fiber optic grass ‘Live Wire’’, oh and a salvia—forget the name at the minute, but it is pink…..and it was 20% off….so :-)
This might not sound as bad if I hadn’t been there just a week or so ago and picked up a heuchera "Dale’s Strain and an allium Karataviense ‘Ivory Queen’.. Or if I wasn’t in the process of preparing for our annual swap next Saturday. We have been trading online and I have a list of trades that is bigger than it should be…..but ……I can’t help it…….I NEED more plants……
and BTW….I did pick up those marigolds! :-)
