Rose Trauma
Althought these are lovely examples of my new Popcorn Drift roses, they were oddly and very cleanly decapitated. What the?....

Night Photo
We moved the three potted bamboo plants behind the planter. They are really ratty from winter neglect and abuse. I had to prune them a lot. I hope they like their new spots.

Cut Flowers
Last year I couldn't bring myself to cut some spring flowers for indoors. This past weekend we had a dinner party, so I went for it. Now I don't even have to look out the window to see some spring color. With a grey house, the color really stands out.

I spent the better part of today playing concrete block tetris. My arms and abs are getting a great workout. I always thought that gardening counting toward real exercise wasn't possible. Boy was I wrong. All I need is to construction adhesive landscape fab...

Horn Fountain!
This is the early test of our new horn fountain. Two years ago I found a trumpet and an french horn that I intended to make into a fountain that spilled over a basin covered with rocks. It will be some time until that is completed, so I decided to incorpora...

Not Exactly What I was Expecting
This is what sprung up in my garden. This is what I thought we'd have.

Today's Work
 I got some of the holes planted today, all are perennial except the spiky grass. 10 more plants to go.  Hardy agave in the foreground. We'll see how hardy it is. The rest are known to be hardy in Boise.

I've adopted 2 dogs from IHS. The first dog didn't work which broke my heart, but the lady at intake was so sweet while I turned him over in tears sobbing. Our second dog adopted we've had for about a year and 1/2. She isn't without her problems (like all dogs/ children/ family members) but she is a huge part of our family. She was really sick when they picked her up off the streets, so some of her health care had to be done after we took her home. They were awesome and even amputated an infected tail at no cost to us (previously existing problem we hoped would heal). The wait at the clinic can be quite long and that is why I have a separate vet for general visits. But for people needing low cost care, a wait is to be expected. I see a lot of complaints about IHS here are based on costs and have to say that If you are going to own a dog, you better expect to spend a decent amount of money for them. If you can't afford a pet or child, then don't get/have one. It is irresponsible to take on a dependent that you can't provide for.

I dropped my boxer-american bulldog mix that we've had for a week that came from the Humane Society. I was nervous about leaving her with strangers, but quickly was impressed with their confidence in her. She's not ready to just hang out with the dogs and they have a plan for introducing her so she's not too nervous. I love that I wasn't walking my dog into a room full of strange dogs. The control factor really impressed me.

I always order sweet and sour the fist time I try a Chinese place. Their Sweet and sour sauce tasted like it comes in an industrial sized bucket with plenty of corn syrup. It had a very strange aftertaste. The actual entree included battered deep fried fatty pork nuggets and generic fried rice. Not a vegetable was to be seen. The egg roll was pretty generic as well. The people there were very nice.
