Jita, Kathryn's older cat, died today.  We decided to put her next to Pepper, in Zone 2.

Not as deep -- it's difficult to dig real deep in this soil.  The rock is gone, but it still has a high clay content, and the soil is also quite wet.

Out next step for Zone 2 should be landscaping and planting.

Another Rose for the South Bed

Back in January 2013, we planted a "Maggie" Rose in the corner of the South Bed, by the stone wall and the fence.  Now we have added a new rose bush, a bit further down the stone wall.

This new rose is from Barton Springs Nursery, $18.99, and is a Mutabilis Rose (Rosa x Mutabilis).

April 2015

We added a trellis to support the first rose bush -- the Maggie Rose.

This trellis was from Lowe's for  $43.57.
