There will be rain. And, though it will be pretty stormy weather, we need rain. So, the Boy and I headed out to pick up the plants I had spotted Sunday. Perfect time to plant, and I'm ready to get working in the garden again.

The are where I planted is looking pretty bad at the moment. It is the area where our local "Flame Throwers" like to sneak through. We have a temporary block that my side neighbor is participating in. Soon, we will be putting up something permanent.

The Boy and I raked up mulch that was probably there long before we moved in. We rotated the soil a bit, much to the chagrin of the palmetto bugs that were living back there. Then after ripping and cutting at a vast array of roots, adding some nice new soil, and trying to center everything, our new plants were home.

They are Red Sister Cordyline Terminalis. I have a lot of work to do in that back corner of the yard. Including lots of weeding, which will lead to ripping up the rest of the mulch I suspect. The bird bath needs to be scrubbed out, and possibly relocated. More to come, soon.

Thank you :) My thumb isn't quite green yet, but I'm working on it! ;)
