today i am waiting for the following:
1. Heirloom Roses order of 13 roses Climbers and old roses: Louise Odier, Heritage, Constance Spry, Gertrude Jekyll, Falstaff, Iceberg, Zephirine Drouhin, New Dawn, Red Eden, Charlotte, The Impressionist. (arent rose names fascinating?) of course ordering this late, i missed out on Comte de Chambord and Reine de Violettes and Graham Thomas and a few other favs – but I will order them this fall unless i find them somewhere else.
2. Sprainbrook Nursery delivery of compost and mulch ( you dont want to know how many bags) and flats of agerartum and dianthus and 16 geraniums (red, white, pink) to plant in the front of the house – a big planter and several small pots along the front steps. hopefully this will brighten up the front prospect!
I have this Mockorange Snowbelle to put in the center of the large container that sits in front of my side of the front porch – but its so small right now – it came on Saturday – that I am going to leave a space for it and nurse it a bit before transplanting it again. The front gets FULL SUN all day.
3. UPS delivery from Canada – missing in action – of privacy trellises to divide the patio so that my neighbor and i can each sit out and enjoy our privacy on our patios. shipped on the 12th, the company cant figure out why its not been delivered and apparently quebec has a holiday and they cant get the tracking number from them until monday. these were ordered on may 30th. sigh
