Well, there are those of you who don't care, and others that
wonder........and some who know if you opened up a multiple address post
(with sincere apologies to those that were on the list in my address book
and didn't want to see all those addresses, but believe me, all of you who
are in my address file are good people who don't mind each other seeing
addresses.) I never send multiple e-mails much anymore unless it's rather
important, and it might not really BE important to some of you..........(so
don't be so snide, Cerious) but after suffering from ISDN problems,
BellSouth problems, phantom modem problems, purchasing two ISDN modems that
turned out I didn't need, and being offline since last Thursday, I am back.
poorer, grateful that I HAVE a computer and can talk to gardeners and
friends all over the place and actually OFF werk today!! woo hoo!! so
after a day in the unbelievable spring after a "Blackberry" or "Locust"
winter last night (we got a little frost on the irises) I will connect back
and fill ya'll in on the flowers that have gone mad up here in Fairy holler.

yes I does. I jes paid the car insurance for the month (late but better than
not at all) and threw in on the April housenote (again, late, but better
than two months.......Squire was down and out of work for 6 weeks starting
in December and we got two months behind........took us the whole time once

is no more room until I make a new bed now. Pam is sending me divisions and
a few wanna's in the mail all legal and I hafta tell you, after that, and
the Louisiana iris, and the Milk and Wine Crinum, I need to cool my jets and
start whacking saplings-----saying that and actually DOING it will be harder
My garden is already winding down it's first flush of flowering. It is
literally covered in blooms right now. Millions of wasps and bees eating and
drunk on nectar. Hummingbirds everywhere, nests being tended, we have three
pair of cardinals and two Carolina wren pairs. I've so far seen two different
types of skinks, a few snakes, and a red tailed hawk landed two feet from my
face yesterday. It looked at me, fluffed up his/her wings and took off silently.
The larkspur cover the entire property, as do the many types of coreopsis,
poppies and lavenders. Many of the salvia's are also blooming. All the
rudbeckia are ready to open, the irises are the biggest I've seen and the
California poppies are flat out beautiful.
I have Mexican elderberry flowering, viburnums coming on, hydrangea lacecaps of
all types starting to bloom, grasses are coming on with plumes and the datura
and brugmansia are blooming with profuse perfume at night.
Life is good.
