I had to leave the dog by himself for a few hours, but I left the radio on so he could listen to music.
I love Harlequin’s Gardens. It has a laid-back, yet at the same time hard-scrabble feel to it that is attractive and difficult to describe. It’s an extremely pleasant place, located on the north side of Boulder, and there is no water. It has to be trucked in. Imagine that.
I came home with a carload of cool plants.
P.S. Everything is organic there.
P.P.S. About the redbud. It’s variety canadensis; var. texensis has very shiny leaves. No matter. Rupert Barneby, the foremost expert on the pea family in the last century, said they were all the same species, with just “localized expressions” that had slightly different characteristics.
