In case anyone’s keeping track, this is the fourth post I’ve written today, but it’s to make up for not blogging since last Thursday.

Also, the vinca that re-volunteered itself in Kim's bed from last year finally bloomed. The first two that came up, however, I moved to a container then put back in the bed extension. Those aren't growing as quickly as the ones that were left alone.
