art, plants & maine coon cats


Well not me, but Kari my gardener is out rescuing a poor Fairy rose from attacking aggressive orange day lilies. I used the orange day lilies on the north side of my house as ground cover and they keep escaping. If I didn't have help then my yard would contain Variegated Bishop's Weed (Aegopodium podagraria 'Variegatum'), Orange Day Lily (Hemerocallis fulva), Garden Phlox (Phlox paniculata), Wode (Isatis tinctoria) and a Reine de Violette rose. The Bishop's Weed, Daylilies, and Phlox were all mistakes of the previous homeowner. The Wode was mine and the Rose isn't a mistake but nowhere did it say if this rose is happy it would try to eat my house.

Diana gave me a link to a store that has some amazing batik fabrics. Oh dear, I see new clothes and hopefully I can get them finished this summer.
