Monday night is coupon night! Oh how excited I get waiting to see what each week’s garden center coupon will be! This week was for 43% off Iceberg Roses. Icebergs are a Southern California garden staple! Everyone seems to have them in their gardens. So how could I say no? I mean, I can find a place for it even though I’m running out of room, right? This will be my 7th rose. I think I can say I officially have a rose garden. I haven’t placed the Icebergs yet. I’ll need to do some reorganizing over the weekend after I have some time to think about it. Oh there were so many other plants I wanted to take home, but I didn’t have the time to spend looking. I did manage to quickly browse through the herb section and snapped up an Anise Hyssop aka Hummingbird Mint. I love herbs just as much as I love roses. I want to go back to the garden center early Saturday or Sunday morning and see what else they have. I like the English Cottage theme I have going on right now… Or at least as much of an English Cottage garden that I’m able to do with containers and a tiny space. Ahhh someday I will have a sprawling land with acres of garden!
In other news, I haven’t seen my friend Black Widow in the Lilies. I’m not sure if she got tired of me getting her wet each time I’d water. Maybe she found a new location. I’m sure she’s close by and if I had to guess, I’d say she moved to the woodpile next to the steps on my back porch.
The light at dusk this evening was very pretty. I ran inside, grabbed the camera and took a few photos before the sun went down. My Ketchup and Mustard Floribunda is really putting on a show! Since the day I bought it, it has been nonstop bloom after bloom! What a great little rose. And the lovely Sonnet Pink Snapdragons are such a delight to look at from my window.
It’s a lovely time of year. I can’t wait until the weekend when I can wake up early before the rest of the world and enjoy the tranquility of my little enchanted space.
