Six on Saturday - March 27, 2021
It's a wonderful weekend in Southern Oregon! It's sunny and warm (will be, it's still early morning, but it was yesterday when I had the backdoor open to let in some fresh air). I got my soil delivered (#2 below), filled one bed and started a few others, before THE BEST part of this weekend (I know it's only started, but nothing can top #1) happened! #1 was going to be the soil, but how can soil compete with...
1 - Mickey!
Yes! I got a new dog! A 5 month old Border collie x from the Rogue Valley Humane Society in Grant's Pass. He has an eye-patch, one small black spot on his back leg, and speckle spots on both his ears. He came named Mickey, and already knows the name, so I think I'll keep it, maybe just call him Mick. So far he is not the "garden helper" Boo was, Mick is more like Edward was, a "step in the planters even if they are out of the way" kind of dog. But, he's a puppy yet...
2 - The Previously Exciting Soil Delivery
We, my son and I, got one bed filled, and a couple underway. No sooner had we started a break than the Humane Society called to schedule a "meet and greet," and "bring home" if it worked out. So, no more soil has been moved.
5 - Plants from Barb
Isn't it nice to have someone to exchange plants with? I think I get the best of the bargain though.
Iris Pallida (Dalmatian Iris) and Cerinthe (honeywort)
Orlaya (Minoan Lace)
6 - Teasel
A weed, or even invasive species in some places, but it sure is pretty when dry. This teasel was growing along a small creek by the Humane Society's parking lot. The barn makes it even prettier, I think!
