Garden journal entry


Anemone 'Prince Henry'
November 29, 2009. Snow on a pleasant late-autumn day? The bright white mops of shedding anemone seedheads sure took me by surprise on my leisurely stroll through the side garden this morning. I must have caught them at just the right time - they get nice and fluffy when they are actively shedding, but only last a few days in that state. I'm just about done harvesting seeds (only Aconitum carmichaelii is still ripening up its seeds; I harvested them in mid-December last year). Only a few very hardy plants are still in bloom – among them, one of the ladybells in the side garden, and Karvinsky's fleabane in the rock garden. Yep, the season is winding down... But have no fear, 2010 is already here, in the form of seed-starting activities. Due to bad timing on my part, I already have a few seedling varieties under lights; they'll be joined by dozens more in months to come.
