Fair Exchange

3 pub cans of Guiness and half a bottle of Jack Daniel's netted me a fantastic chocolate stout cupcake with Guiness icing, and a bottle of Jameson's 12 year-old Special Reserve.  Brilliant.

The one purple beautyberry I thought was dead was only sleeping.  There were little green sprouts coming up from the base, under the mulch.  I moved some of the mulch away so that it can get some sun.  Totally spoiled the symmetry of what I was originally going to do with the hyssop, but nice to see that a $15 plant actually survived.  Still waiting on my Toad Lilies from Gurneys... maybe I'll give a call and let them know that the liriope did not survive (I totally did not leave them in the fridge way too long, nope nope nope)

Tons of bulbs from Brecks to get into the ground.  The hostas will get donated to Mom in the city where they will not be deer salad.
