More Flowers for My Garden

The nice thing about the massive weeding I did was that it let me see where my flower garden was bare.

Today I took steps to fill it.

Bates Nursery, You’re Killing Me Here!

I have requested that Bates install a crappy plant area for their loyal customers. You could go in there, to the crappy plant area, full of stuff you would never actually buy, and a helpful person would come and you would say, “I’m just wondering if you have something blue for my garden, which I am afraid is overwhelmingly red and yellow and orange? Perennial, please.”

And they would find you one blue thing and you would pay for it and go home.

You would not find a tomato red coneflower and a dark yellow coneflower and a purple thing you don’t quite know what it is and a blue thing you don’t quite know what it is and bring them all home to plant here in just a second.  Oh and some shasta daisy seeds.

You wouldn’t have those either.
