August,another year gone by. Time to take stock in what I have.
This is my birthday month. I don’t remember exactly how old I will be. 57 or 58. One of those. Gotta ask the wife.
The summer of our fourth drought has got me to fall back and concentrate on just improving what I have over adding more.
I bought some ceramic pots when I swore them
off..but,they dress up a plant along the driveway better then black nursery pots.
I also potted up,fertilized and worked extra hard at weeding this year. Not perfect,but makes a difference.
When you do that- just concentrate to make every plant the best you can? It really makes you feel bad at the other plants over the years you meant to do that too. Although I will remind that Gophers have killed more valuable plants,and vandals/thieves the others more then me or weather.
But some were me being lazy…!
