That last post should read bee flowers not beer flowers.

Well, I've been out in the yard all day.  Beautiful Indian summer day.  I added some finishing touches to the flowerbed rehab I've been doing - flower border #1.  That one is now a rock garden with big stones.   The theme has been re-use.  Very big stones taken from an old koi pond, crocosmia from divisions from my old yard, ditto for sedums, oriental poppies, sempervivums, and daylilies.  I added some echinacea and lambs ears (Stachys byzantia) that I found on the All-Dried-Out-Looking-Dead-90%-off-table at Home Depot and Fred Meyer, and I'm finishing a stone path.  Now moving on to flower border #2.  Same theme.  Goal is easy maintenance, dry tolerant, and some beer flowers. 

The sale plants really perked up.  They were root bound so I cut off the encircling roots, cut several slices into the root ball, and have been watering well.

Thanks Daniel.  I'll try that.

Spud, if your autocorrect is like mine, you can go to SETTINGS, then select KEYBOARD, then turn on or off various things like autocorrect. You might be able to adjust text size or boldness, which I find helpful.

Here's the quarry where I get my sand and gravel:

That is their "quarry" in Wyoming.  Not "guard".  This new computer automatically puts words in that it thinks I mean.  I've got to get used to watching it, or stop it from doing that.

Joan, I don't yet know what your bottom picture is.  I got the streets mixed-up in my head when I went looking for it, so didn't find it today.

Your top picture is the J.R. Simplot fertilizer factory.  The dark areas are holding ponds for the slurry from the pipeline that comes from their guard in Wyoming.  They use that slurry to make fertilizer.  The grey areas are waste tailings.

Joan, Ning is back now. Urban upper class China is as developed, advanced, and consumerist as the US. The young generation is not aware of the troubles of previous generations, the cultural revolution, the starvation and poverty. Rural areas and urban slums are very destitute and I imagine those are the majority. It is extremely crowded, city life is fast paced, people tend to be in your face and aggressive. For me as an introvert, all of that is hard to handle so I did not mind going this time.

I'm glad you are happy in your garden. Mine is my escape and solace.

I am content! The slugs have their love affair! All is right with my little world. Wish I could say the same for all others in the world!
