Botany.

Today we planted
  • four new rose bushes: Mister Lincoln, a classic red; Falling in Love, a beautiful pink; Elle and Fragrant Cloud, both salmon-colored.
  • four scented geraniums.
  • a dozen lavender plants and ten rosemary plants.
  • ten lemon verbena plants.
  • some ornamental grass.
  • piles of nicotiana--white and pink.
  • some single petaled marigolds.
Tomorrow, we'll plant
  • cosmos.
  • transplanted cornflowers.
  • a couple more roses, probably.
  • hollyhocks.
  • coreopsis.
  • etc.
Maybe sometime soon I'll plant some tomatoes and some basil. It's time, isn't it?

just love your idea of a wild field vs. grass. as I was mowing the other day, I had very bad feelings against our grass.
