Since we are still officially "sheltering in place" due to the Wuhan China virus, stores have gotten creative in order to be open to the public. Today I decided to support our local plant nursery, Clegg's. Like Trader Joe's, they were only allowing a certain number of people in at one time. As people left with their purchases, those waiting were let in. I have to say it was quite nice shopping with fewer people. I could live with this indefinitely! When I got to the register, they had bolted a plexiglass shield in front of the cashier. That made me feel toxic--like a walking petri dish or something. I think the whole thing has people reevaluating everything they touch and how far away we should be from one another.
I left Clegg's with 34 plants, and after planting all but one, I was too tired to put any energy into P366.
Gazanias are daisy-like flowers in the Asteraceae family. They are native to Southern Africa and were discovered in 1791 by German botanist, Joseph Gaertner. They do well in Louisiana gardens, blooming well into the summer. A bonus is being drought tolerant.
