The dirty truth
Purchased: More soil and compost has arrived. Excellent timing, too. Although I've probably used a dozen bags of soil this year, I've told myself that it's an investment in the future. One truth I've learned from Monty Don: Good, nutritious dirt = happy plants.
Still waiting for my replacement Moroccan urn to arrive. It was supposed to be here at the beginning of June but has apparently been delayed. When I ordered the replacement, the clerk on the phone said it was the last one in stock.
I truly hope this one isn't cracked like the last one.
Plants: The white bleeding heart (Alba) that's supposed to find a home in the urn is still healthy and fine. It's been hanging out in a shady spot on the back deck, near the stairs, and the lack of constant light seems to suit her.
Should I prune back some of the leaves? I think I read somewhere that if you do so, you're more likely to get flowers. Reminder to self: Check that.
I'll also need to pick up some more red geraniums when the urn finally does arrive. They're generally available from the local nurseries -- or they are during non-pandemic years -- but who knows what the situation is now. Once everything is planted up, the front door/garage area will be complete.
Weather: Currently 69F and sunny. Low 48, High 85F. Bright and sunny. No chance of rain.
