The dogs are clean, so maybe it will rain now
All I did was take Coaly and Pepper to the groomer, but BT got serious and bathed Sweetpea. Usually if I bathe more than one dog, it rains enough to make mud. People think it’s car-washing that brings rain, but in fact it is dog-washing.
Next weekend is the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center Fall Plant Sale. Yum. I have a long list of things to buy, and there is a small chance that I will actually have a home for the plants when they arrive. I usually try to make it to the members’ night preview, but getting from far north Austin to far south on a Friday before 7pm seems unlikely this time. On my wishlist: Carolina jessamine, possumhaws, sacahuista, softleaf yucca, Mexican oregano, and I have a wildcard spot for some large shrubs….cenizo, maybe? Hmmm. I’m sure all sorts of things will jump in my wagon unexpectedly.
