#2: Lopped a limb off the 'Montrose Purple' Vitex and was immediately happier with how it looked. As beautiful as it is in bloom, I've not been satisfied with the shape of it for a long time. I didn't do a good pruning job early on. I may yet whack it down to the ground and let it regrow into a multi-trunked tree.
#3: Weeded. The confounded Dallas Grass, Gripeweed and Spurge continue to plague me.
#4: Watered again.
#8: Sat. I had planned to drive over to Austin on Friday but a low-grade bug of some kind had me feeling puny most of the week. So I sat out front and sketched the expanded planting areas, then perused plant catalogs from the various local sales I've attended recently. I compiled a lengthy wish list and hope to start shopping next week. Otahal and crew are on tap to help me plant.
#10: Watered MORE.
