I planted some flowers today. It was one of those days where I really needed to be around civilized people, so I went to the plant nursery. It's one of the last bastions of polite society; people who work with plants are just nice people. So I stopped and smelled the flowers and chatted a bit.
And then I picked some out to take home. Mostly lavenders; lavender is a favorite of mine. But also a catmint, a few pale purple and yellow daisy-type flowers, and a very bright orangey-yellow wallflower. Can't have a garden that's all sweetness and light!
I also scattered about some stuff that is supposed to make the gophers clear out. I'll let you know if it works.
