late bloomer

Arrrgh! I spent hours and hours poring over the seed catalog, scrupulously choosing which plants would go in my garden this year. I scrutinized, I cross-referenced, I cut out the catalog photos and made a little paper garden to see how it would all fit together.

Perfection achieved, I triumphantly logged on to the catalog website, extensive notes in one hand and credit card in the other, only to find....

NO!!!!

Nine out of ten of all the plants I'd so carefully chosen are SOLD OUT.
I was too slow.

I still ordered way more than I can afford, and I'm sure they'll all be beautiful. But I'm having a hard time letting go of the garden I'd so lovingly planned, the one that will never exist because I waited to long to make it happen.

Drat.
