I've paid a few visits to my local garden center since it reopened, the most recent this past Monday. I went in search of fertilizer and a flat of 'Elfin' thyme to fill in bare spots between my flagstone steps. The garden center wasn't as well-stocked as it's previously been due to delivery delays and I couldn't get the flat of thyme but of course I didn't go home with just fertilizer. When I caught sight of several nice Alstroemeria in one-gallon pots, I couldn't help myself, even through I had no great place to put them. So I bought a couple of new pots too!

|Alstroemeria 'Inca Vienna', accented with plugs of Muehlenbeckia axillaris, went into a new pot on the left|

On Wednesday, my mail order from Mountain Crest Gardens arrived, containing five succulents.
|It was beautifully packaged and almost all the packing material was recyclable. It also included a nice instruction guide.|
|I also bought myself another Mangave 'Bad Hair Day'. I think this plant is better suited to a pot than it is planted in the ground.|
Then yesterday the first of two orders I'd placed with Annie's Annuals & Perennials arrived.
|It arrived just after noon, neatly packed as always|
My second Annie's order is due late next week! Meanwhile, I can probably depend on the local critters to provide a source of distraction too.
|Mama was fierce! She wouldn't leave until her baby safely extricated itself from the fountain, which took awhile.|
I hope you enjoy a low-stress weekend.
