I have not made much progress the past two days due to heavy rains. I made the run to Lowe’s for gravel and soil amendment; I am still looking for the Texas sage that Faye Fyock had planted in the side yard of the church. I also checked for sixteen foot four by four pressure treated posts to finish the raised bed at the back of the house.
I patronized the garden annex to Ace Hardware on Grand Avenue before I left Oakland. They have a section of Trailing and Cascading Plants. I found calibrachoa of course, lamium – pink and white, and a golden lysimachia that was not familiar to me. I also picked up two cubic feet of potting soil to establish the new plants in the clay spigot protectors that I will use for annuals.
The day closed with a sighting of a white egret on the fire prevention pond in front of the house.
