My Favorite Garden Colors
Using this set of four colors, I could buy annuals, perennials and even flowering shrubs and trees. A dark pink Knock Out Rose, blue Rose of Sharon, some yellow Potentilla and white Shasta daisies. Easy. Another hint is to repeat a grouping of plants three times along your border. Looks professional. And doesn't need to be planted all at once. Perennials need dividing every three years, so this could be a three or six year project. Well, those are my gardening words of wisdom for today.
Yesterday turned into a complete lost day. I read two books and just did nothing. The worst part was that I also didn't eat. I felt sick and dizzy most of the day but nothing in the house seemed appetizing. I did have some cheese and most of the 1/2 gallon of tea. A handful of almonds. Several big spoonfuls of peanut butter. A slice of the gluten free chocolate zucchini loaf (which is leaving the house when I go to work). It isn't even that good but it is there calling to me. I do have a serious carb addiction. Best when I have none at all. Zero.
I started today with eggs, onion, peppers, grilled zucchini, wilted kale and sausage. Lunch is full fat yogurt with blueberries and pineapple. I even made a pot of coffee. I've got the kettle on for boiling water so I can mix up a box of SF strawberry jello for the rest of the week. I hope the strawberry is better than the cherry.
It's supposed to be 70% chance of rain today with 83% humidity. Lovely. Good for the yard and garden but not so great when you are inside a glass greenhouse. It would be nice to have some lightening and thunder. And rain pounding on the greenhouse roof. My car could use a good wash.
