A million bucks would fit neatly into my plans. Even a thousand dollars would make life grand. Because then I'd have no difficulty budgeting for life's basic necessities.
Like the new bulb garden.
Which is Phase 2 of the entirely new perennial garden. The one I planted this year and then, for some odd reason, forgot to blog about it! I didn't blog about a lot of stuff this summer. Too many other things weighing heavily on my mind.
Onward and upward. This super spectacular new strip of... well, I'm not quite sure, it's not done yet... is the first thing folks see when they drive by the house.
So, I was hoping I could have it looking all wild and crazy from the moment the snow melts in early springtime.
If the weather holds, I plan to squeeze all sorts of goodies into this new garden, a 45 foot by 6 foot area that used to be called a ditch. First up: Allium bulbs!
Alliums, if you haven't met them, are a country gardener's best friend. Critters, deer, pretty much all quadrupeds think these onion bulbs aren't worth eating.
