We all know that a story is only as good as the cast of characters, so I'd like to introduce you to the key components of my west side story.
Red Birds in a Tree
Vermilion Bluffs Mexican Sage
Sonoran Sunset Hyssop
Hidcote Pink Lavender
Coronado Red Hyssop
Wild Thing Sage
Blue Oat Grass
Blue Switch Grass
Red Switch Grass
Yaku Jima Miscanthus (which sounds remarkably like a Samurai when it introduces itself!)
Dark Knight Bluebeard
Assembling the cast was no easy task. It took trips to three different nurseries, including one more than an hour away from my house!
I still need a few more key actors, but I'll have to order them from a catalog so I won't get them until later this month.
Now I just need someone to give the husband CPR once he sees all the new additions to his yard!
