Love My Subaru


I may not be stopping to look at free piles these days, but if anyone says free plants, I’m reaching for my gardening gloves.  Especially if they are drought tolerant and low maintenance ones.  One of our new neighbors in our big sister eco village only three blocks away, offered some strawberry trees, arbutus unedo and a couple of Portuguese laurel trees, prunus lusitanica.  My trusty Subaru could hold one plant at a time.

When it came time to dig up the laurels, I got The Good Husband, Raoul, to save the day.   The biggest laurel put up a good fight, but finally was persuaded to get in the car. 

I am so happy to have my gardening passion back.  We are really looking forward to designing and planting this new garden of ours.  No more plants that are trouble makers, thugs or water hogs!

    I REALLY appreciate all his help with the garden. Digging trees up is hard. But these were such beauties, that it was worth the effort. I’ll wait a while before either of us signs up for tree digging up duty again.
