Summer Seed Plantinbg Experiment: Perennial flowers. 7.14.18
It shows that you had to push on to finish your last days in the job - that causes the depression. Take good care of yourself and enjoy what you have!
Wow, it's official! You have joined the ranks of the "unemployed", Daniel! I'm sure it was--and is--emotional. It'll take awhile to get used to the changes in your life. Now don't go and overwork in your garden and yard. Enjoy a relaxing cup of tea in your sunroom at least once a day!
Congrats, Daniel, I'm so glad you made it to retirement!
Yes, Daniel - congrats and welcome to life after life!
Daniel, HAPPY LAST DAY OF WORK!
Daniel, I have never grafted; you inspire me to give it a try. Experimenting is one of my great pleasures. We had a snifter of snow and hail yesterday afternoon and terrible storms. Laura drove me to Spokane for a routine CT scan and in the 40+ miles, we went in and out of the extremely heavy rain and hail storms. Ended up with blue skies when we walked into Cancer Care Northwest.
That main Cherry trunk is huge. Do you have any idea how old it is, Daniel?
Your Japanese cherry is lovely. It looks very much like my Kwanzan Cherry in Spokane. We have few such trees of this nature in the forest. There are some on home sites and they look as though they are carefully tended. I will get some flowering stock eventually and the only limit is water.
We have a native syringa vulgaris that grows in the conifers and they are not yet blooming. I miss the natural early bulbs and will see if I can get some that naturalise. I will start with your suggestions, Daniel, daffodil, Camassia, hyacinths, and fritillaria. I grow all of these in Spokane.
Daniel, you are weeks ahead of us in Newport and Spokane, Not a sign of buds and only a little green peeking through the ground. We don't have spring bulb in Newport; it seems the deer eat them at the first showing. Our Generation Garden has peonies and iris and the deer seem to leave them alone. March is the BIG MONTH for you; only one day left to work! I am jubilant for you! I look forward to some smart ass comments as you have time to think about the state of political affairs. Perhaps, it would be better for you to stay away from reading and listening to the turkeys make their racket in the news and tend to your garden, bees, cooking, and enjoying our company.
Ruth, I've seen robins about all winter. Never before. And I mentioned the confused Sandhill cranes coming and going. Gotta be the climate change. My garden is now covered in snow. It better be gone by the time I return from Florida on March 6th!
