I gardened last week until I had to take the weekend off and rest a little so I could anticipate another week of fall chores. 🙂
Last Wednesday, thirteen Master Gardeners gathered to divide, label and pot up almost 400 donated plants to overwinter for next year’s plant sale. Besides digging two large containers full of plants, I also have 65 plants potted up here at home to overwinter. Speaking of which, I need to get those in the ground.
When gardeners gather, they always bring a few extra plants to share. I was gifted with some more Annabelle Hydrangeas and a Sum and Substance Hosta. The Annabelles, with their 10-12″ flower heads, were added to the current grouping by the side porch, but to make room for the Sum and Substance, which is 3’x6′, I had to clear a large area.
It was unreal following the coverage of Irma and then looking out at the beautiful weather we were having here in New England. Prayers and positive thoughts for our fellow citizens in Florida. I hope next weekend brings boring fall weather to all the states.
Speaking of tragedies, September 11th is never a date you forget where you were or all those lost. Continued peace and prayers to all the affected families.
We did spend some time out and about car shopping this weekend, which in my book is right up there with having a root canal which can sometimes be more enjoyable. So, if you’ve bought an SUV recently, and you really like it, please tell me because you could save me some additional misery this week.
For those not trudging off to a workplace, what’s on your agenda this week? I’ll be back outside until it’s time to head off to the car dealers. Maybe I’ll just have a too much digging to do? 🙂 Have a happy and safe Monday.
