The Horticultiral Whore Goes Shopping

…and mum’s the word

That would be Mum as in fall planted chrysanthimums. I hit Loews garden center pretty hard today, buying the following…

6 different color types of Mums (red with a yellowcenter, deep red, deep purple, yellow, white and yellow with orange edges)
6 False Heathers (Cuphea)
12 assorted Marigolds
1 purple Calabrachoa
2 trailing Lantanas (1 white, 1 purple)
6 assorted Dianthus (aka Pinks or Sweet Williams)
6 Violets

The Mums went into bare spots in Flower beds J-45-Alpha and Q-91-Gamma. The Violets will also go into various flower beds, too. The rest of todays purchases, plus a few more plants I’ll buy next weekend here , will go on the hillside that runs along the east side of our house. Actually, I have a bunch of transplants from various garden beds (such as a huge bunch of Lemon Grass shoots, zillions of cannas, some dwarf bamboo and several kinds of salvia) that will go onto the hillside as well. Once that hillside is all planted up real purty like, I’m done with it…well, except for watering and such.

I also bought several sacks of compost and some fine screened steer manure, just to help punch up the iffy hillside soil. Mulch will have to wait until tomorrow.

And now, before I run off to prepare a dinner of Pork Chops, Stuffing, Bandito Gravy, Green Beans and Nestle’s Crunch Bar Chocolate Ice Cream for My Sweet Little Albino Springbok Of Love, here is todays character.

Missy is a 14 year old Vietnamese American girl. She has only recently turned over her ace and is still learning what she can do. So far, she has told nobody else about it. She hasn’t yet decided if she wants to fight crime, but she’s kinda leaning in that direction. Since gaining her powers, she has never once been late for school.

    Wait — a speedster who -isn’t- always late?
    Maybe it’s because she’s an Asian femme? The “Asian girls are always late” (or is it just Japanese schoolgirls?) and “Speedsters are always late” memes cancel out?
