It's my dirty summer habit.
I can't be trusted going to the plant nursery.
Like all my hyper habits,
I become obsessed in the spring
The perennials poke their new growth
Peeking up and out the soil.
Not everything makes it over the winter.
Some beds are no good
So gaps appear in the earth.
They need filling.
It's a dirty habit indeed.
I promise I will only buy compost.
Put pots in my trolly, then back on the shelf.
When I get home I have three new roses.
Dirty, expensive horticultural habit.
