I'm at an airport motel outside Kansas City right now, getting ready to leave for Japan verrrrrrry early in the morning. More on that as it happens! But one of several things making the past few days wilder than usual was that the workmen were all over my place, finishing up Stage Whatever-This-Is of the ongoing landscaping project. Et voila, a nice little patio, in perfect sync with my low-slung 1950s limestone ranch:

I'll work on dressing it up a bit after I get home, but for now it's wonderful to see something other than bare dirt back of the garage.

Aaaahhhh, that is indeed a baby lilac right there at the corner of the house--just waiting to grow up into a big lush lilac! Lilacs love this climate--so do Rose of Sharon, which aren't scented but do have those wonderful hibiscussy flowers. Trellis with something climbing is a good idea; I need something to shield me from the neighbors' yard (and their ADHD black Lab that hurls itself at the fence snarling and barking every time I step out of my back door).

There is definitely an umbrella in the future of this patio, the better to enjoy tea under! And I have a wonderful chunky big pot that needs something planted in it when I'm home to water daily.

Email coming, BTW, since I didn't get a chance to answer yours last night or this morning!
