Or, maybe the word is Stupid!
No, really, I am so happy I was able to accomplish what I had set out to do. I finished planting on Saturday afternoon. Even though many of the rhizomes are quite small, they are already looking like they are taking hold and looking healthy. They may not produce a lot of flowers the first year but we just have to wait and see.
On the other hand, they may surprise us especially since they are planted in a good foundation of new garden soil mixed together with planting mix.
The Yellow Chrysanthemums are looking great. So very cheerful!
Interesting, there are a couple spots on my property that were probably mine shafts. Years ago I noticed that one area where I was planting would continually loose all the soil. It was like it was just disappearing! So, it was time for me to take a better look at what may be going on. Sure enough, when using a large flashlight I could see down the hole that it went what seemed forever. So, I started throwing rock down the shaft. And, now, many years later the soil is no longer disappearing!
The large rock boulders that surround my property are the result of the massive bulldozing. The gold miners were mining for the veins and reefs of gold-bearing quartz which often were in granite. Without a doubt there is gold on my property from what I am told. I have many large beautiful rocks that would be fun to examine!
With everything going on in our National News it has been so nice spending a lot of time in my garden.
