Planted all kinds of stuff fro the plant sale (great time), as well as my roses. Kind of muggy and hot—rainy this morning, then clear and lovely. Got a picture this morning of a praying mantis, er, nest or whatever that had just busted open. Pretty cool. I politely directed the fine young mantises toward the Supposing the Roses garden, letting them know we had some very fine aphid infestations for their first course.
