Bring Flowers of the Fairest

I'm planting my garden tomorrow!  Elfin thyme, sage, bougainvillea, rosebushes, a red banana tree, and a bunch of other plants whose names I don't know.  I will post pictures when it's done.

I have a black thumb, but it's okay - because I have a guru.  Dean, at Sego Nursery - he helped me make a garden plan of action.  He told me that if I follow his instructions, the plants won't die.  (Sounds like a ransom note, doesn't it?) Apparently it's like cooking - yes, some of it is instinct, but with enough practice, the instinct can be developed.  So there's a new goal to add to the list, a new skill to aspire to...gardening.  How quaint!
