What a night!

What a night!

This entry starts from yesterday. I slept in yesterday morning because I was up very late, (3:30am) the night before. I have all the plants ready for the plant auction and spent the better part of the morning and afternoon attaching labels to them. I made up the labels on the computer the night before. The whole car was filled with plants. It's a good thing I didn't have more because I had nowhere else to put them. As you can see from these pictures

Once the dough was ready I shaped it into two loaves and let it rise in the oven. I baked it off and the loaves were huge. I probably could have made three loaves from it instead of these two. This is sourdough whole wheat bread.

plant auction I auctioneered for the last half of the evening and it was a long evening. I picked up some good buys for myself including another mountain bluet, but a pink one. It will look great in my front flower bed. Also, I got some more perennial geraniums.

Frisky is watching me. She is sitting on top of my briefcase beside my desk. She is such a cutie. I can't let her sit on my lap like she wants or I would not be able to type. When I got up this morning, and went into the kitchen for a coffee, I looked out the kitchen window and what do I see but four deer in the back garden.

My biggest job today will be to bring the plants from the car and find spots for them in the gardens, except for the tomato plants I bought. I got a Sweet 100, an Oxheart Beefsteak, and a couple of Tiny Tims. The rest are perennials. What can I say, I am addicted to gardening and just can't help but buy more plants. I love variety in the garden and this year should prove that. I can hardly wait till they grow into wonderful specimens.
