Happy Dirt

Wow, compared to your adobe, am I happy with my soil. It’s barely more than sand. But, it’s not too tough to dig, and with lots of amending plants grow well in it. And it drains like the dickens, which I’ve learned plants like.
For winter reading, and rose dreaming, I ordered the David Austin catalog (click on the “free catalog” link). Easily the most gorgeous rose catalog I’ve received. Highly recommended, and the right price. Only danger is — it may lead you down the wicked path of temptation.
Oh, and they do have a positively evil lovely suggestion — plant roses in threes in a sort of triangle about 18″ – 20″ apart. This way the roses grow together to form one large-ish mass, with lots of blooms all the time. Must help sales.
