More plants!

We can't resist. We bought more plants in a sale room at an area nursery. In all, we came home with 19 new additions. Salvias, yarrow, rubeckia, ruellia, dwarf myrtle, purple skullcap, maybe coreopsis. By day's end, James had them all in the ground! I am WAY behind on labeling plants in our Wildscape.

At a roadside pottery/ironwork stand, I also bought a wooden table to set out by our hammock. A bargain at $2! We got it home, and I carried it out to the patio so I could wash off the mud and cobwebs. Uh oh. First, I saw the two egg sacs. Then I saw the shiny black legs and body. A black widow mama! She's not there any more, and that's all I'm gonna say. End of story.
