    I have those popper weeds all over too. I hate them. I didn’t get to weeding last week but I hoping to get some weeding done this week.

    My phlox fared really well, I hope yours comes back. But we had some bamboo in pots and I think we might have lost two of them. They look really bad but we are holding out hope they will come back. The other one looks really good but it wasn’t in the wind as much.

      Oh, Shelly, I too, have a beautiful stand of clumping bamboo (that I spent more to buy than any other plant!) that is completely brown. :( I’m afraid to go out and look at the base to see if there’s any new shoots – I figure the longer I wait the better chance there is that it may come back, right? :)

        We didn’t have to purchase our bamboo, our neighbor was removing it so we received it for free. But I know it can be so very expensive. I haven’t checked for any shoots yet either. Hopefully they will all come back. Your right, it can’t hurt to wait. :)

    found your Hebe plant being sold at a place I have ordered from before, also put the search on low to high cost and it was the under 20 dollars for it. If you want it then please check them out, I hope I have helped.

      Oh, thank you so much, Rebecca – that was so generous of you to take the time to research that for me! I’ve ordered from J&P before, too, and you’re right, they are a good company. I’ll check it out. :)

    I have a whole row of dead lavender! One variety made it through just fine but the other is toast. I am going to need a weekend to dig it out. We also have had such dry weather that I think that is going to stop me from planting anything in its place this year. We are on water rationing so establishing anything new this year is almost impossible. Sigh.

      Oh, I wondered how you were faring with the CA drought, Barb! I didn’t know if you were enough north to steer clear of it, but water rationing – ugh. Major bummer for gardening. :( I’m saving my dead herb garden for another post – I’m still in shock over the loss because they are plants we just usually don’t have a problem with! Such are the ‘joys’ of gardening and weather. :)

    I can’t wait to get out there and tidy up, thanks for making chores look enjoyable and thanks for hosting.

    Oh I sympathize about your victims of frost! It has been mostly dry in California but in December, the frost came. It killed a few favorite succulents and turned all the mandarins on my tree to yuck! And they had looked so promising to. Oh well. Next year.
