I went outside today, armed with my sketch of the front gardens and my notes, intent upon coming up with a plant list so I could go do my shopping. I also took my tote of tools, just in case ... Can you see where this going?
I did spend SOME time thinking about the design, as evidenced by the pots which are being used to signify plant placement. There's a lot of bare ground but I'm notorious for not allowing plants enough space and I'm trying to mend my ways.
Most of the day, though, was spent creating piles like this one. In the process of pruning the native Turks' Caps, I developed a really bad case of the change-it-ups. The Head Gardener is fit to be tied and she didn't sleep well last night, thinking about where this could lead.
