|My Iris reticulata bulbs emerged and flowered on Tuesday. I covered them with a loose tent of evergreen boughs to protect them from the snow tonight.|
|If you watch carefully you will see the bulbs pushing the mulch and earth upwards. Imagine the power of a flower to do this! It blows my mind.|
The Daily DuBrule
Ah the threat of snow caused the postponement of tonight's talk at Elizabeth Park on blended gardens. It will take place on Wednesday evening, March 14th so mark your calendars and BE THERE!
I was working from home all day with tons of stuff to accomplish. Aside from the day to day workings of Natureworks, I finished a really interesting and creative plan for a client in Branford. When I finally get to settle down to my drawing board and design, nothing makes me happier.
|My motto. What I wouldn't give to really be able to get out there and garden right now. March is a tease.|
|Overnight in my courtyard snow crocus and snowdrops bloomed. These will have no problem laying low with the snow and ice, only to emerge and bloom again.|
|When I walk of of my garage door I am greeted by snowdrops and Helleborus niger. What a pretty combination.|
|My witch hazel just keeps blooming. I am inhaling the spicy fragrance of a vase full of cut branches as I write this. Of course I cut them before the snow started falling...|
|What fun! I stripped off the bottom of the cut witch hazel branches to prepare to put them in a vase and used them as a very temporary top dressing on my trough garden filled with succulents that have never gone dormant this winter.|
