|Whole lotta pink columbine|
Way back on Easter, as I was lowering the blinds on the back door, the string holding them together on one side broke. Not wanting to have that particular door without blinds, I decided to move the blinds from the same size door in the sunroom to the back door until I had time to buy a replacement blind.
Then the string on the sunroom door blinds broke and I had no door blinds.
Looking at the two heaps of blinds on the kitchen table I realized that I now had something even better than door blinds.
I had a lifetime supply of plant labels.

I tried them out this evening. The pencil washes off the front side of the blinds, the part that faced inside, but seems to be permanent on the back side of the blinds.
I'm in business now! The Vegetable Garden Cathedral is going to have the best labels a garden can have.
I'm thinking now I might also label other plants, too.
It depends on if I can find the labels for the plants I can't remember the names of. Like my pretty pink columbine, pictured above. Of course, I know it is a pretty pink columbine. Duh. I just don't know which variety. But is it all that important to know the variety?
Yes, it is important to know the variety if it is a plant someone gave me to trial, like this Clematis, the first clematis to bloom this spring.

I didn't remember the variety at first, but with a little help and prompting from a friend on Facebook, I figured it out. It's Clematis 'Delightful Scent 'Sugar-Sweet™ Lilac PPAF. It's got a great color and was the first clematis to bloom this spring.
I'm going to put my lifetime supply of plant labels to work and label this one, then see what other plants need labels around here.
After all, did I mention two door blinds broke and I now have a lifetime supply of plant labels? For free!
