Moonlight Scotch Broom plants were on sale at the local nursery and, since there was one on the property when I got it (way overgrown, but did not make the move from the patio area to the side yard) I thought it might be nice to have a new one -- in the side yard, as originally intended.
The hole digging went much more smoothly than I expected, so now I'm enjoying one of my birthday presents (bought with a gift card): Family Guy: Star Wars Trilogy. I'm not generally a Family Guy fan* but it is really good (especially the first one, Blue Harvest).  I highly recommend it to any Star Wars fan.  (And for any of my friends, you're welcome to borrow mine.  :)

*I once dated a guy who disliked South Park because of Cartman, but loved Family Guy. I, on the other hand, dislike Family Guy because of Peter, but love South Park. The humor of this was not lost on me, as both are extremely similar, boorish and unpleasant.

Yay! So pretty -- I had two scotch broom in my front yard. One didn't like it, and the other held on for about three years then finally just died. Mom had the same result with hers -- lasted for about 3 years then just putzed out. I hope yours loves your side yard and sticks around for a lot longer than that -- they're so beautiful when they bloom. :)

PS -- I don't care for the Family Guy, but I used to watch South Park. Twinsies!

I'm hoping that since the previous one did well in a similar (though not the same) spot, it will do OK. [crosses fingers]

And definitely not a surprise we're twins. ;D
