Garden journal entry


March 21, 2011. It's time for the new growth installment of the journal. Every early spring, there are a few new plants whose newly emerging foliage suddenly strikes me – sometimes the plants are new to the garden, but often it's just that I've never paid particularly close attention. With this Valeriana officinalis, it's a bit of both: the plant has lived in our garden only a couple of years, and maybe the burgundy-contrasted-with-pale-green look doesn't show until the plant is mature. In any case, that's the kind of thing that makes the garden worth wandering around this time of year, even though temperatures haven't been venturing much above 40°F recently...
