Sunny and hot

Sorry I wasn’t online yesterday. I had a Mercury Retrograde-typical day, and there were things offline that needed my attention. Then, this morning, I was out there at 6 AM, planting before the big heat.

I’ve had to accept that the heather, which turned bright orange after the hailstorm, is dead. I dug it out of the barrel and put in a small star juniper, edged with yellow and orange marigolds. Took the unhappy pansies out of the urn — it’s got three kinds of petunias, a purple salvia, and more marigolds. Put some more annuals in the bed, and rearranged the back deck so it looks like an enchanted garden.

The workshops over the weekend went well. I keep adding resources to the companion handbooks and have to stop already and get them out. I love putting together lists of books and resources I’ve found helpful.

Today is a big push on the ghostwriting project, and I want to get the Billy Root short story out to the people who came to the Virtual Zombie Disco Party last night. Got some grocery shopping, too, and need to do as much as possible while it’s still cool out.

The writing is swirling — research from one project leads to ideas for another. I’m enjoying this creative buffet, but, eventually, I’ll have to focus back down!

  1. Heather loves a wet, cool climate. It’s a plant I love, but it can’t live here. Sorry to see your climate isn’t supporting it, either. I hope it was a freak thing and not heat-related.

  2. I wish I could grow heather, but it would not do well here at all. I’m sorry yours died.
    I hope your week is going well!
