Hollyhocks=pure magic...at least in my book!

I completely subscribe to your zen gardening philosophy. I have managed to keep alive plenty of fussier plants, while killing off several rounds of 'natives'. Go figure. My first hydrangea (Incrediball) is setting blooms now. Can. Not. Wait. :)

It is pretty deep, actually. Sometimes, here in So Calif, it's easy to forget. People try to force annuals to live year round just because they tend to hang on. But the season is over, the light is less, or more, time to move along. I say this while watching my neighbor planting marigolds in deep shade, just like she did last year. And like last year, I'm sure she's going to be frustrated.


Hey Carol!! Reading a good book now that I thought you had reviewed, but not seeing it in a post, so maybe I found out about it on another blog. If you have not read it, I think you will like The Storied Life of A.J.Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin. I enjoy all your book reviews and have found many good books through your recommendations. Let me know if you like this one!! Also, are you on Goodreads? Have a great weekend!!

Hi Carol, happy last weekend to see you. Looking forward to witnessing miracles and learning in our garden in New Mexico. I like that you move things around to different spots-- like Mom and Dad did.

Curious to know which clematis that might be. Does it have a silvery tint down the length of each petal? I had one many years ago that was mislabeled and have never been able to find another like it. So beautiful!

When people ask my why some plant died, I aways start by saying, "We are ALL going to die." Funny, no one ever asks about plants again.
