Garden journal entry
|March 19, 2011. It's a bunny UFO! Well, actually, it's a seedling of Bergeranthus jamesii, at its first-true-leaf stage. The ice plant relative hails from South Africa, and with a hardiness rating of zone 7, its survival in our garden is rather questionable - so I'm going to try to pay attention to the seedlings in their first year, in case they don't return for a second.|
Meanwhile, the garden is starting to show some color - all the usual suspects (crocuses, rock irises, snowdrops, and hellebores), so I've not bothered to take any pictures - but with the significantly warmer temperatures we had the last few days, I expect to see some other (perhaps even new-to-me) flowers come into action pretty soon.

I don't know yet what I might have for sale this year - or even if I'll have a sale. Once this cold weather lets up, I'll see what pops up in the garden...
