Oh well, on the bright side, it's an opportunity to buy more plants and maybe add something wonderful to the garden.
It's not an unmitigated disaster. Most of my plants came through with flying colors. Color being the operative word - the garden is full of it these days.
While we were on the road, I kept seeing crinums in bloom everywhere we went, which made me wonder if my crinums back home had started to bloom.
So, no, all was not lost in my week on the road, and I know my daughter did the best that she could between her more than full-time job and taking care of her own house and two cats, as well as my house, yard, and animals. I'm grateful for what remains and now, if we could just get a little rain, maybe all that brown grass would green up again.
