A Beautiful Madness

I'm still here.


I've just been crazy busy juggling a career while serving as director of the 2017 Capital Region Garden Bloggers Fling.


My garden is one of the stops on the Fling.

But that's ok. Crazy doesn't bother me.


 Nothing much has changed. 


I enjoyed this container grouping so much I'm repeating it 
next summer.

My dogs dug new holes 
after I filled in 
all the old ones and
 are still pooping in the garden
 when they think I'm not looking.


I redesigned my shade garden
 - again - 
because it's become an annual event. 


I'd much rather make traveling here 


or here 


with him


 an annual event but it hasn't happened yet. 
My talents apparently lie only in buying plants
 but not actually designing anything with them.


 If I ever tried to make it as a designer 
I'd be living in a van down by the river.


Native anemone canadensis spreads vigorously, suffocating everything in its path. I redesigned this area with plants whose leaves are large enough to shade out the anemones, hopefully slowing them down.

I updated my So Seedy 2017 page and
 am planning on starting more seeds 
than I have room for.



 But that's ok, too.
