Okay, so Friday, after closing the office down, Guy and I went to the home improvement store and–amaze, amaze–came home with a bunch of homeless plants. I’ve been trying to naturalize the grounds that got torn up when the house was built, so when I found hearty ferns half off, I loaded up. I also picked up for a dollar about five sun-loving plants, which is what ended up giving me the most trouble.
I swear, it was a two-hundred dollar hole in the ground for five, one-dollar plants. I pulled out more rock out of that hole, then there was hole! Headsized down to thumbsized, all mashed together with a thin layer of dirt between them so it looked like one solid rock. But the plants are in, and I’ll take a picture next year when they look decent. It must have taken me over an hour just to dig the hole.
Even better, Guy found in his office a box of Madison freebies that somehow missed the tour, so if you would like a pair of promotional shoelaces, we’re giving them away for the price of a 64 cent stamp(s). Just send me a self-addressed, stamped (64 cents) standard business size envelope, and we’ll send you two freebies. My mailing address is:Freebies gone. Sorry!
