Rich works with metal, wood, tile and glass. He likes to figure things out, he measures so carefully, to the 64th of an inch. Here he is in mid project of some of the work he has done for the garden.
If you are going to spend a summer in the mountains what sweeter place could there be than “Happy Jack?” Once again my peppermint twist geraniums summered here escaping the killing heat of their winter home. So this week we drove up north to collect them in our new improved “geranium transporter” or Honda Ridgeline pick up w/ a topper shell so they can ride protected back to the valley. It holds nearly 25 pots of flowers with out bending or breaking of stems! Ever so much better than our previous truck!
I resolve to dig the holes before I go to the nursery.
I resolve to not purchase a plant that doesn’t have a chance of survival in this climate.
I resolve to keep the plant labels that come with the plant. (and in my spare time learn the Latin names)
