Today I was cleaning up and going to the landfill convenience site to get rid of trash and do the recycling. First I went and picked up a yard of organic compost. After getting to compost I tinkered in the shady garden with the compost and planted some trillium and creeping phlox. then I transplanted some baby hellebores and made a nice rich spot for them. The babies I used were all from our deepest red hellebore. So many babies and so little time.
Anyway so my getting to the convenience site was much later than I had planned. Once done with my chores I lingered by the bottle dumpsters and noticed a fresh new blue wine bottle. I went to get it and the guy that just dumped it said his wife was bringing more blue bottles. They had been collecting the blue bottles for a year and decided they did not want them. So I left with 28 blue wine bottles all the same wine. I have them soaking right now so I can make them glow in the sunlight. Finding 28 blue bottles would perhaps take months of looking for them in the recycling dumpsters!
We bought two new rosemary plants today. The 12 year old one in the garden looked bad after the winter before last, now it is nearly dead.
Tomorrow I hope to post about the bottle wall. Today I wanted to mortar in some bottles but the winds were terribly strong and cement would have been nasty blowing in the wind. I have a lot of bottles ready and might even get Meg's expert help with it.
