Another finish — the garden is back in order and fence is in place again. I planted an oak leaf hydrangea and 3 sun kings. Remember that was the plant in Connie’s garden that we all liked but didn’t know what it was until a reader identified it. I visited the local nursery where I found it front and center. I also met this sweet pup named Lena who lives at the nursery. I’ll go back just to see her again!
It was 15 years ago today that we got our black lab puppy named Carly who had been rescued with her mother along a local blacktop road where they had been dumped. She died of a heart attack in the front seat of Rick’s car on a cold winter day in January when she was 9. Gosh, do we miss that dog!
