Have to laugh only because I’d be doing the same! I went down the violet rabbit hole earlier this year thanks to @farmerjan and @murphysranch 😊😊. Now they line my kitchen window. Got one on Amazon, found one at a family nursery, and well leaves that are now plants 😊😊.So he’s been away for a week on a motorcycle trip with one of his riding buddies. He gets home tonight and has tomorrow to rest up and then leaves Monday morning for a work trip to England. Will get home from that one on Friday.
So I’ve got a little less than a week of my “staycation” left. I thought I would get a lot of stuff accomplished around here, what with not having to stop and cook dinner most nights. The weather has been wonderful. I don’t know why I haven’t accomplished more. I did get all the mowing done last weekend. Did a feed run to TSC today. Hauled all 25 bags to the cans in the storage shed out back. And the reason I was at Lowes was to get mulch for all the flower beds. Got that, but also accidentally brought home 10 more perennials to plant. Thought I was almost done planting for the year. Just wanted a few mums and a couple more plumbago. But they had lots of plumbago on the clearance rack, so I bought 6! I was really good and didn’t buy them all! But then later I wished I had bought them all, and I only talked myself out of going back for the rest because I told myself they were probably already gone by now.
I did tell myself that if I was good and got all these 10 plants in the ground promptly, that I can go back and look for pansies to add around them. And then check if any plumbago are left. 🤫 But I really need to wrap up the planting tasks so I can focus on fall coop cleaning and winter prep.
Have a fun other half of the staycation!
