It's still hot. It's still humid. It still doesn't rain. We've had less than an inch in the whole month!
It's making me cranky.
I found myself at Lowe's for some MORE wood filler for the shed where the carpenter bees are tearing it apart (refer to 'garden projects page') and wandered over to the nursery.
Nothing there really struck me except a display of small butterfly bushes. I needed some instant gratification so ponied up for something new - a color called Honeycomb. I'd seen them on another blog and knew that some day I would have one.
Now I have one. I installed it in the arbor garden (removing a sedum that needed to be transplanted anyway). I hope this will get lush over the years and make a nice statement on the far side of the arbor.
Another reason I'm so cranky and why I truly needed some gratification is displayed here.
Glenda in the Ozarks commented that I appeared to be winning the milkweed war in the stump bed battle.
Not so. The green ring has been the battle zone where I'd originally planted that *#( thing.
Today I've found a sprout out in the lawn!!
I can't tell you how much this thrills me.....:-(
