Anyhow, adulting: check.
In yard work yesterday i began digging up the gladiolus which is where we want to extend the drive way. There are many many many. Anyone want peachy with pink accent gladiolus cormlets and corms? I've read that in the Carolinas they don't need to be lifted in the winter, and given how this patch has grown dense in the previous owner's neglect, these are proven through NC cold snaps. I don't know how well they'd manage through, say, a Colorado winter. I've completed digging up about half the patch and would be happy send them on. It's tempting to think of breeding hybrid glads, but who am i kidding: they are deer food. I'll never see seeds.
I should note, too, the plants are growing in brick hard clay.
In product recommendations: Luci. I bought a pair for camping some time back, and they are light and bright and solar powered. What more could you want? Well, the cool LED light is a pretty stark color. Recently i bought two more with a warm LED and a "flicker". It's a lovely replacement for candle flames.
