it's about time

We have now about 15 minutes more daylight!!! Hip Hip Hooray Sunset is past 5pm and sunrise is now before 730 am We are 'supposed' to have SUN this weekend, and temps out of the 40s. (we shall see) But I am SO ready to get out there and prune roses and rake up crud, and just BE in the garden. And I will experience it to the fullest for all of you out there in the frozen lands, cross my heart....... I have Walla Walla onions, lettuce and spinach in large containers just waiting to grow a little.

notice as it is hockey from Sat AM until Sun AM (but I should be grateful for that as I'll be driving a lot). Snow Sunday night in time for school Monday?

Please send rain to Austin TX. Nice, gentle rain for about two weeks and give us about three very slow to fall inches so we don't flood and our trees are replenished. It's also easier to pull weeds after a nice slow rain. Germinate my Cal. poppies and Larkspur.

Che,
I was very specific! Gentle rain for a month with downpours...well, one downpour of an inch, then slow, soaking gray days. Oh how I yearn for gray days here in the land of the never ending sun.

Hey I think we/ve got something going here! The sun played peek a boo all morning and then about 1 pm the sun came out and stayed the rest of the afternoon. I got some rose pruning done and the bird feeder area cleaned and feeders filled. It was sure nice to be outside. I thought about all of the wreck. gardeners who are snowed in and sent some mental gardening vibes out to you. Hope you all got them! Hope you get your rain, V. Emilie (Garden Club meeting tonight)

Speaking of snow, that was a heck of a football game in Green Bay yesterday. Started with green grass and ended with snow plows and Brett Favre throwing snowballs. He didn't do badly for an old man.

What babbling buffoon wrote this bilgewater??? Oh. I did. Well here is the rest of the story Today was gray again, but when the temp went soaring up to 53 I thought I'd go on over to Target and see if the Christmas/Holiday trees were gone, and they were. NEW plants were all lined up in order on the shelves!!!! So of course sticky pot disease infected me, and I got a new plant. They say that gardeners grow through three stages: attracted to annuals, potty for perennials, and foolish for foliage. Well I am into stage 3 and got BAUMEA a nice foliage plant for my boggy area, about which I know nothing, except it likes wet places. Of course there is probably not room for it and I will have to start a new Bog area........................ Emilie NorCalif
