I'm not known as one who puts things off
even if I say I'm going to.
I told several people that I was going to take my time
filling in the spaces in my garden with perennials.
Well, I did take two days !!
This morning I was faced with housework or 
playing in the dirt and just guess what won.

I went to the local "nursery"  and found many things on sale.
These poor little Crepe Myrtles were $10.00..
sadly in need of a good home.
They are "Dwarfs" and the same species and color.

The Lavender was 20% off..I got two.

The cone flowers were also 20% off
 and I picked up two at the grocery store for $5.00.
There's a Shasta Daisy in the mix as well. 
All of a sudden I thought...
"I'm going to have to plant all of these things".

The Crepe Myrtles missed the photo.
 I planted them together in front of the hose.
Wouldn't it be fun if they weren't the same?

I was going to take my time planting until
 I heard that it was going to rain for the next three days.
(It didn't).
I don't know what "take your time means".
It always has to be done yesterday.
I'll use those rainy days to clean.
(I didn't).
