I'm going to retire and live off of my savings. Not sure what I'll do that second week.

They really can be nice additions to the garden!

Mary, do you have some new natives growing in your garden?

Woodland phlox, blue spiderwort, and mahonia. No good pictures, though. I added them to the back yard semi-shade garden this spring. Thumbs up

Love the phlox and spiderwort, it grows here too. Mahonia would be a nice one, since I think it has fruit for wildlife, and edible too.

Blue spiderwort
