I waited too late to go to the garden store. Approximately half the population of Little Rock was already there. I came away with sacks of rocks and mulch, some peonies and a new gardenia bush (somebody tell me why mine keep dying). But the main purpose of my trip, geraniums, were nowhere to be found. Too early? I'm looking for pink ones. If anyone has seen them in the LR area, tell me where. I also forgot how sore you can get lugging such things up and down steep hillsdides and digging vainly in rocky soil for a deep-enough hole to plant same.
Enough complaining. My excuse for inactivity.
Tonight: Don't forget the Arkansas Times Pub or Perish reading at the Peaboy Hotel. 7 p.m. Cash bar. Lots of good professional writers and some brave volunteers, too, if the phone conversation I heard Pub maestro David Koon conducting Friday are any indication.
