I was bad
Well...even though I sorta promised myself I wouldn't buy any plants this year without a certain place to put them, let alone before the backyard is ready to receive plants (right now it looks a bit like a breeding pit for orcs), I may have...ummm...accidentally bought some plants this weekend.
I know, I'm weak, but you all understand, right?!? You know how you occasionally stumble upon a plant you've been looking for...and never could find. Well...there they were, this beautiful trio of Cephalaria gigantea...how could I resist! You know I love big (especially tall) plants...as well as blowsy, ephemeral plants...it's like the nursery knew I was coming and put it out just to entice me. Now my punishment starts, I have to find a place for them...if only we'd get a few dry days I could start the backyard excavation...sigh.
Also...I'm seeing a strange recurring pattern in the making...my two plant purchases this spring have both been of plants with "gigantea" in their name...do you think I have some sort of "small-garden" complex??? ;-)
