My sister called me the other day and I cheerily answered “Hello!” in a sing-songy happy voice. She greeted me with “You are in such trouble!”
Moi? I searched my conscience, it was clear, as usual. I had no idea what I could possibly have done to get in trouble.
“You didn’t tell me about this new greenhouse place!”
Uh, yes I did. All spring, my sister asked me where I was buying my plants and all spring I told her about this place. (Court’s Yard and Greenhouse, I even mentioned it in a post on March 16.)
It’s not my fault she didn’t get over there earlier. But now that she’s been there, I think she has been back two more times.
“You are going to be sooooooo jealous of what I got there”. Really? A week later, I dropped by her house and gardens to see what was going to make me so jealous. She was referring to the edging in the picture above. Yes, that is cute and it looks very nice with the soft grayish color of the Lamb’s Ear. Maybe I’ll get some for a spot in my garden where I have some Lamb’s Ear by my patio?
Then she showed me what they had done with their vegetable garden. I knew about the raised beds, as I’d been telling her to do that for years, and I told her how to do it. But I didn’t know they had purchased that wrought iron fencing.
It’s primarily there to keep the dogs and kids from running through the garden. They bought it in sections and she said it was easy to install. It does look nice and her vegetable garden is doing quite well.
But she still has the shrubs with the big spiders in them. And seeing those webs, it looks like they are back this summer. So, am I jealous? I’m not telling, but I’m sure not jealous of those spiders!
