Yesterday was a lovely 75 degree day so I did some more garden renovation. Planted the two cone headed boxwood and added a Knock Out rose shrub, a 'Sombrero Hot Pink ' coneflower, a true dwarf, and a 'Pure Silver' Veronica, the first that has silver foliage.
Painted old Rusty the Rooster red as his features could hardly be seen and placed him at the side of the herb garden. He's holding up a pot of basil.
There were about 50 pears on my Asian pear tree this year, many small ones that I plucked off to allow the others to grow their full-size.
I must get a net to cover them because those pesky tree rats squirrels are eating them.
