We had a slight hitch this morning on the way out to get groceries. The car battery finally bit the dust after that deep freeze. Fortunately our neighbor was nice enough to drive E to the auto parts store to get a new battery, which E then easily installed herself. It works!! So we went to the store.
Later, the rest of my native seeds arrived, so I promptly scattered them in the “prairie”, the shade garden, and even the CA rock garden. Now to let winter do its thing while I try to be patient (and hopefully live to see them). I’ll have to settle for indoor plants in the meantime.
