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.

I'm headed your way. Rain today, sort of nice Sat and Sun, but I won't
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
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.
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
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)
i am here in wisconsin.
we started the winter with snow,snow,snow.
then it warmed up and EVERYTHING melted!
just around christmas time, it started to snow, and we got SEVERAL inches.
it was absolutely gorgeous. (my two granddaughters from california
absolutely LOVED IT)
in the new year that snow has almost melted away, and its quite warm for
(45+ degrees on the bluff of lake michigan)
thanks for all the positive thoughts!
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........................
