Some new plants!
Today, dr wanted to go up the hill early. It was good to get out of the smoke, too. After he did his errand we went to Home Depot just to look around. They had some roses, acutally they had a lot of roses in big bins. We bought three climbing roses, one red, one white with pink edges and one yellow. We are going to put them down in the lower yard where dr is going to put the lattice fence. They probably won't fill the fence this year but in a few years it will. Then, I bought three six paks of pansies. I have a pottery dish and a step bed to put them into. Not much else is out yet. Everyone knows it's going to get cold again. I did buy a plant for a hanging basket. It's called Lysimachia Nummularia, Goldilocks or Creeping Jenny. It has round leaves that are a shiny golden green. That's what it says. Golden green. I thought it was pretty and I've never had any. I'll find a hanging basket for it. I have that nice pole that I bought last week at a yard sale. I'll hang it in the backyard by the bridge. It says full to partial sun.
What did I do today? Not much. Wrote a letter to grandma so I could mail her Saint Patrick's Day card. Sent a cheery card to Heather. Took the pictures and resized them and loaded them to photobucket. Cooked lunch and went to work. It was so slow at work that I had all the books shelved by 7:30 and then I shelved video's which I don't normally do and then, I went and rearranged shelves and put books back in order. dr did some shopping while I was working. I think on Friday, which is my day off as you know, that instead of going to yard sales we will go sight-seeing. We want to go to Camp Verde to Montezuma's Castle, which is an Indian Ruin. We want to buy a Golden Eagle Passport so when Andy comes we can go to the Grand Canyon and the entrance fee will be cheaper. I looked on the internet and the closest place to get one is at Montezuma's Castle. It's probably 50 miles one way, but we can also go to Cottonwood which we like to do sometimes. They have a good organic store there. Camp Verde also has a variety store that I like and maybe a place for lunch. So, that's about all for tonight. Dooley
