Sure enough, when I went back out for another try today, all was clear. I planted two more varieties of Zinnias in the section of the plot previously owned by the spider. Then I got busy planting Zinnias in the front, two different border mixes on either side of the day lilies. It wasn't until I had finished planting that I realized I had accidentally planted one border mix and one giant mix. Great. Now I will have a lopsided garden. I just can't seem to manage any kind of curb appeal.
I took the daisy picture at Tyler's Bend hiking trail along the Buffalo River. I thought it was a decent picture until we got home and I saw it up close on the computer. Since lasik surgery, I don't always see the small stuff, which is how I unknowingly took a picture of a spider!
We had an inch of rain Sunday morning. I ask you, what would a garden journal be without an occasional weather report?
