A little rain

It rained a bit last night - thank goodness, because otherwise I was going to have to go out and water the Mariposa Center Garden today. Ugh!

Another thing that happened yesterday evening was that I went round to Michele and Carl's place and picked up some plants and cuttings they donated for the plant sale on May 1st! Thanks guys, very much appreciated!

At lunchtime today I went to Center Hardware and procured some wooden stakes using the store credit they gave us to fix up the strip garden opposite them. They mentioned they saw the city worker weedwacking the strip yesterday!

I borrowed a hammer from Gary and went down and put three stakes per plant on the strip, with twine to make a little barrier that I hope will protect the plants a bit from life on the streets. Then I hung two new signs asking people to keep their pets from killing the plants and giving info about this blog.

The newly planted plants all look pretty good - one Lupine is a bit floppy, and the Chasmanthes are done for this year (wait til next year!) so we will cut them back soon.

Job well done, if I do say so myself. :)
