Hot and dry. That's been our east coast weather for too long now.
Heat and humidity however will not keep me from a 50% off sale at the local nursery. Especially when I've got a gift card burning a hole in my pocket.
Thank goodness I'm not afraid of a little sweat and heatstroke because I got a fabulous deal on two rosemary plants that are just screaming to be trained into standards.
Each of these Rosemary "Arp" plants are about 24 inches tall. The perfect size to shape into topiaries or standards. These are perfect to do a triple standard.
This first haircut will be pretty drastic.
Now I will give them some fish emulsion fertilizer and set them in a sunny spot.
In about another month they should look fabulous.
Some pretty new pots are in order too.
Now that was a quick gardening break, it's really just too nasty to be outside much so I'm heading back in to the sewing studio.
I'm playing around with aprons again :->
