Garden journal entry


March 30, 2006. Every year we wait for it impatiently, and it still takes us by surprise - the first star magnolia to open. Pure white, voluptuous, and surrounded by plenty of its bud sisters. The show will be over soon - so we'd better pay attention while it lasts.
In the past few days, I've started to pot up plants for the sale, which will be early this year, in late April. Not sure how that's going to work out, because so many plants will just be barely waking up by then. But what struck me right now is how dry everything is - we've been having a stealth drought, with none of the spring rains that usually keep the ground moist at least through April. Even though it will look silly, I plan to set up a sprinkler tomorrow...
