After spending all day Saturday building a paver-covered patio area, I scarcely had energy left to watch television last night. Today I opted for a more relaxed pace, so I didn’t even get going shopping for supplies until 1:00.
I’m sorry to report that my Black Spanish transplant bit the big one. I watched it depressingly crap out all week long. I finally ripped it up, chucked its remains across the yard, and replaced it with a cabernet sauvignon vine. I know they grow in Texas. But, will it grow in south Austin? I guess we’ll find out this summer. I was half-tempted to get a pinot noir vine, but they reportedly need cool nights to do the best. That’s not a typical feature of an Austin summer night, so I passed on the pinot.
