Oh, and I forgot to tell you ... I dropped by my local nursery this morning because I needed a nail set from the hardware part of the store. The store is owned by a neighbor and sometimes golf partner of my husband. He said that all of my new beds looked so good that I could get whatever I wanted from the garden center at cost!!!
I brought home another flat of caladiums, and 3 flats of other bedding plants, and also a dozen or more quart-sized lilies and other perennials for making beds on either side of the end of my driveway. Also got a gorgeous braided-trunk shrimp plant that is about 4 ft. tall. SCORE!!!

My wife loves lillies and has planted a number of them. Recently the Lowes here was greatly overstocked somehow and has many, many rows of racks of plants for 1/2 off! She went wild. Now, while I search shrimp plant online.
Over the weekend I remembered a shade plant that we couldn't have before, a Confederate Rose! Gotta find one now.
