Well done. I bet it feels good to have that job tackled! Your rocks are splendid. I'd want to show them off, too. So, what plant(s) are you thinking about placing there?


You are an inspiration! Lately, I have been feeling overwhelmed by age too, despite my adamant insistence that I will not capitulate to it and give power to it. Still, it creeps about, whispering that I can't do this and I can't do that. And there you stand, looking radiant and victorious. Well, if you can, then I should certainly at least try. Well done, you! I am very curious as to what you have planned. Any details you care to share?

The Rootslayer is great. A friend dug out some of my pink Muhly grass for a steep slope where she is the gardener. I offered my Rootslayer but she stuck with hers because she sharpens it! I haven't investigated that yet but it's on my list. Right there with you on the heat, drought and age. Finally bearable here but desperately need rain - more than the drizzle we got today.


I'd be exhausted after all the street work and related plant moving and replanting, but there you are! I have a soft spot for Crimson Pygmy and the bush at my parent's house is probably a good thirty years old, but I don't think I'll need another cutting of it for here.
Glad the rain has inspired you!
