For the garden is the stage on which the gardener exults and agonizes out every crest and chasm of the heart.

First 2016 Posting

These are cellphone shots and it's more convenient to just post them to Facebook. I really don't like Facebook. It has a tendency to abbreviate everything, even life; it has no soul. Meanwhile, back to the garden. It was 95F one week ago, but today is just blanking cold, windy and wet. On the other hand the recent rains have really greened things up. 

A month into the season and I am already at least a month behind on my maintenance. Just this evening I remembered the two potted hostas I overwintered in the cool corner of the basement. They are over a foot tall and are sick ghostly shade of pale. Reaching to the sun so they can make chlorophll to create cellulose. I fear I may have created an 8th grade science experiment. I hope the plant can survive my forgetfulness. I'll try to remember to take photos. Yeah, right.

Enjoy your garden, whatever it's maintenance level. At 6:30 this morning I was driving to work in snow. It stopped and turned to rain within the hour, but then the temperature dropped and we were doomed to work indoors all day.
