Look Who Finally Showed Up

There are at least 3 patches of these and since I know I only planted one of them, I'm assuming the rest must be left overs from previous owners. One popped up in the section where i removed exactly 65489 day lilies, that little guy must have just been smothered.

It's been a strange weekend for me. I've been fairly productive but all weekend the You-shoulda-went-to-Austin cloud has been following me. I hate making bad decisions. It means for a long time I'll be having these thoughts floating around in my head: you should have gone, what if they never do it again? I don't deal well with thoughts like that. Fortunately I don't need to do it too much because I normally don't make bad decisions. And if I do they tend to be the "i knew that plant would be gone when I came back today!" ones. This will be even worse because come tomorrow all the garden bloggers who didnt make a bad decision will be posting all sorts of fabulous stories that only happen once in a lifetime and I'll have missed it, making me even more angry at myself for not going.

I think I'm cranky...

    I can't believe you removed day lilies -- I love them! I guess that's what's great about gardeners, we all have different tastes. Don't fret about not going to Austin. I went back and forth on it too, and after seeing Layanee's travel fiasco, I'm glad I opted not to go. Hopefully the Garden Rant ladies will do the Buffalo meet-up in August again and this time I'll be able to go -- and maybe you will be too!

  2. Maybe if we act really pathetic and sad they'll do it again? I got a lot done in my garden too this weekend...but I kept thinking..."Wonder what's happening now in Austin? Well,at least there are no privet babies in this area...that's SO important."

  3. Maybe we'll have a fall fling in Chicago next year! Wouldn't that be awesome!

  4. Head up! There's always a fling somewhere. And if not, throw your own.

  5. There are lots of crocus sprouts so it looks like you'll have many more flowers next year. 65489? :)

    It would have been nice to have gone to somewhere warm and green but we'll get there soon enough. I'm sure since the garden blogosphere has exploded they'll be many more get togethers in the future.

  6. Yes, you should have come to Austin. Don't miss the next meet up, whenever that is!

  7. Oh, dear heart, don't be cranky and regretful. I couldn't/didn't go either, but there will be another. I'd dearly love to see the Chicago gardeners like you, and Carolyn, and Garden Girl, and Gloria, do something for early autumn/late summer. If you ever get that notion...
