Yesterday was long and interesting and a calorie binge for the record books. Oy. I need to not eat for the rest of the week.

The beauty of the day was in visiting with people. I saw several lovely gardens and picked up a few samples (seeds) along the way. The irises were delivered and I saw the area where they are planned to be planted - they will be an excellent addition to the yard (it's unusual to see a yard down here with no irises!) I also visited with a number of cats and small dogs who were very glad to meet a new friend. Mine also are also always glad to meet anyone I let in the door, but as big as they are, they are more like a hockey game out of control compared to the tiny dogs at the homes I visited.

I got some ideas for how to push more gardens into the turf area - I've tried it before, but it's time to try again, with plants more tolerant of shade.

Company is coming this weekend so it's time to start putting stuff away and clearing the table. I have a cheerful new blue checkered table cloth and a friend may bring along a few Halloween decorations that should be nicely contrasted on the table.
