the money pit

Today I spent $60 on the garden...it's sad that it doesn't show. If I spent $60 on jeans, you might notice that I had a pair (or two) of new jeans. But in the garden, $60 just disappears. Today, it was 3 bags of lava rock for mulch ($4 each = $12); 2 kangaroo paws ($6 each = $12); a phormium ($20); an elephants food ($13); and a roll of screen ($5). Okay, the roll of screen I will cut into little pieces to go in the bottom of pots, so its non-obviousness is forgivable, but it's a little unfortunate that the rest of the stuff just vanished when added to the front yard.
