Déjà Tagged

--Didn't we JUST do this???

--Well, actually, we did this back in March. And since then we've ignored a couple of tags.

--Oops. Alright, alright. Here goes. But we're going to be BORING and stick to garden factoids.

THE RULES

1. Post the rules.
2. Write six random things about yourself.
3. Tag six people.
4. Let the people know they've been tagged.
5. Let the person who tagged you know you post is up.

THE FACTOIDS

We've only killed one perennial and a few annuals this year. R.I.P the Australian mint bush, some verbena, one purple cauliflower plant. Not dead yet, but looking less than green, are the baby bay tree and the agastache rupestris 'sunset hyssop.'

We have the world's ugliest hedge along with some of the fugliest shrubs we've ever had the misfortune to lay eyes on. Seriously.

We've FINALLY figured out how to start tackling the western border of the yard. The goal is a bed with reds, oranges & yellows. Daylilies, cape fuschia and monarda will get us started.

We have so-called 'dwarf' grey sugar snow peas towering over the monstrous bronze fennel and exceeding the top of the 6ft trellis. The beautiful purple blossoms are giving way to many green pods.

Because we love to cook, we have 4 thymes (variegated lemon, orange balsam, silver posiee, and Foxley), 4 sages (garden, tri-color, pineapple and purple), and 4 mints (peppermint, pineapple, orange and ginger).

And finally, in the interest of world peace and domestic harmony, it is best if we work on construction projects, such as building the cloche, separately.

WHO WE'RE TAGGING

YOU! If you're reading this, and this sounds like a fun activity, then we invite you to play along.

I'm certainly not here for the tagging plague and most definitely will not play along (anymore) LOL Nevertheless, I loved reading your factoids and just popped by to see what sort of a mischievous deed are the wenches up to now. I deliberately tried not to take a peek at that delicious Whoopie Pie but then the Festival thing did me in. Man, schnitz un knepp and all those pickled treats! Eat 'til you ouch!

Take care girls,
Violet

Whoa, your dead plant list must stand as a record for fewest plants killed in any given season! We are SO impressed!!!!

I say hello to the wenches, unfortunately I can't play along I have already given away all my secrets! I am a Basil somebody is a kindred spirit. How could you let the australian mint bush die? It is beautiful and it is tough, perhaps it got wet feet. I have lost a few myself!
