So here's a look at what's come home with me since the heatwave struck.
|I planted Zinnias from 6-packs after tearing out the dead sweet peas. That was planned even before the heatwave struck so I felt little guilt over it.|
|The plants in the southwest-facing area of the front garden were pulverized by the June heatwave. I had it in mind to replace what had been there with a Leucadendron and some Phormium so when I found what I wanted at Roger's Gardens last week, I snapped them up. The photos at the bottom of the collage above are close-ups of, left to right: Artemisia vulgaris 'Seafoam', Leucadendron 'Safari Sunset' and Phormium 'Tom Thumb'.|
|I found Leucadendron galpinii (left) in a 1-gallon pot for the first time at the same nursery so I brought it home too. I'm probably going to bite the bullet and use it to replace my sad-looking Adenanthos (right) in the back border.|
Am I done? I'm not committing myself to assurances I may not be able to keep.
