Looks like Art Bell was
to hunker down and be more of a steward to my corner and prepare for what
comes next. This IS the start of the elections, after all. I never voted
for shrub, by the way..............and I have to think that my dear departed
friend, John Skeffington slipped out before he saw how things might get
to....he was saved the anguish of Mother Earth....................
thanks Starlord for the heads up.
What's with all the ................... ?
alright, in all the years I've written on this newsgroup, you didn't notice
that sometimes I just put in a series of dots to indicate pause, quiet,
reflection? never mind. I still love ya. inquiring mind wanted to know and
there youse has it. it was a pregnant pause after my statement. and it's
not that I am overwhelmed with the impending things, Doug, just resigned and
resolved to continue doing what I have always done these last decades. I
steward my corner of earth, I am minimizing things, I'm teaching myself to
not be the typical stereotype of amerikan consumer, I'm concerned about
what's happening, but other than voting, I don't think one person can do
much, it will take way MORE of us to change things, and like Carl 1 lucky
Texan said, the earth has done what it damn well wanted to with or without
the extra fleas on her back for millennia. I read the article, I'll go get
the issue after I tackle a project I'm intent on finishing TODAY before I
even venture outside into the incredible Spring that is bursting up here in
Fairy Holler on the ridge, and afterwards, I will sit down and share with my
friends who garden around the country and world.
and that........................is that! LOL
madgardener up on the ridge, back in Fairy Holler, overlooking English
Mountain which is shrouded in clouds intent on North Carolina and onwards,
in Eastern Tennessee where it's already 60o
the same person wrote it. that would be me. I am a multi-faceted middle
just happy they return. I have snow, Dutch and large ones as well as
species. The snowdrops are done, but now the enormous Leucojum are going
full bang. The muscari are three kinds, maybe four in many, many pots and
area's. Woodstock hyacinths, some early Stresa tulip and the Toronto's as
well as one called The First. that's a Kaufmanniana. Pinochio's are back
and making me smile, and assorted narcussus are popping thru the perennial
foliage, as well as now I see water lily tulips rising from the soils.
Squill, Windflowers are ferning, Epimedium under the maple sapling is
blooming, Hellebore are still going guns, Pushkinnia has popped up in
surprising places, sedums are bulking up and filling out and tanning and
blushing. Iris reticulata are still appearing where I tucked them, Iris
bucharica are leafing and getting ready to wow me (Juno iris). Spurge is
electric green, all the Spirea's are leafed out and wired for blushing reds
and oranges with pinks and tans and other warm colors. Pieris under the
black cherry tree has flaming red leaves that scream out at me from
underneath the boughs, and the Shooting star I got this late winter is
performing with Virginia Bluebells underneath at the edge of the spent
whisky barrel, I see signs of ferny leafed Columbine, and Bleeding hearts,
and over in the NSSG I HAVE bleeding hearts up too soon.....False Indigo is
leafing, Variegated solomon's seal is tongueing out at the sky, Toad lilies
are leafed out, vinca vinca vinca everywhere and endearing me with their
half dollar sized Periwinkle blue flowers everywhere. Lamium or yellow
archangel on the eastern side of the sidewalk garden is already rising
little stems to make those neat yellow flowers that laugh.
yep, it's a good day.,.....
