After losing power for about 20 hours after yesterday's intense storms (crazy winds, torrential rain, hail) things are almost back to normal here, although I'm not sure what normal is now. You've probably noticed that my posts are not as reliable as usual, and I apologize for that.
Today's vignette is brought to you by Anna at Flutter and Hum, and is a mess. Literally, I just took photos of the mess that is my driveway. Springtime plant drag outs (from the basement and garage) are almost complete but nothing has been put into place yet... so it's a battlefield out there!
I can't even give you the complete list of projects here, but they include pruning my half-dead ribbon bush -- where every other little branch has died, making pruning a tedious task indeed, propping up my flopping bamboo (yes, again!), and finding a place for a couple of packs of shingles left over from last year's roofing job. Maybe I'll just leave them out if those hailstorms are going to be common now...
Still, this mess has it's own type of beauty, like this NOID fig...
...and a dozen pots of Agastache volunteers.
Speaking of a dozen pots (or more), my succulents are acclimating on the mostly-shaded driveway:
Can't wait to move them into the direct sunlight! What a mess!
I'm not sure that you should be thanking Anna for hosting the Wednesday Vignette meme because who wants to see my mess! I'm hoping that a few more weeks will result in an impressive "after" series of photos, but we'll see.
