I've been waiting. And it's finally time! Wahoo!
That's right - all spring I waited. All summer long, too. I've been waiting for the rain. Yes, we've had rain! Hallelujah!
Now I feel as though I can plant all those plants I didn't get to plant this spring or summer. I've already started planting boxwoods around the main rose garden.
And I've got lots of plans for many more plants. More roses, of course. Some companions. And replacements for poor plants that didn't quite make it. And now that it has rained, I finally have hope that they will live and thrive. In ground that is soft, moist, and nurturing, instead of the hard, dry, baked clay that it was before the rains came.
Wahoo! It's time to plant! And I'm ready!
