Garden journal entry


March 22, 2012. It's not often that Amy likes something in the garden enough that she comes to fetch me from a far corner of the yard to point it out to me – so when she does, I pay attention! The combination that caught her eye this evening, just before dusk set in, was a low-growing assembly of Puschkinia scilloides and myrtle spurge, planted underneath a viburnum in our front yard that is just barely starting to leaf out. The squill has been there for years, from a long-ago bag of mixed bulbs, while the spurge seeded itself in that position (as it does in many places near its mother plant in our rock garden). In our garden, early spring bloomers usually act solo, surrounded by barren garden areas – so it's nice to see a duo working together so nicely.
The weather has been amazing for over a week now, with short-sleeve temperatures from dawn to dusk. That means that gardening has started early, which is fine by me. I'd be delighted if the early-season warmth was offset by some mid-July coolness!
