We're expecting significant temperature changes this week - into the 20's.
I guess that one remaining tough delphinium is going to go. What I need are
two or three gorgeous, warm - read 50's - days to clean up a little lest
the garden go through to spring as is. Had to dye yarn through the last
beautiful weather. I can see your grin, George, as you look out at newly
emerging goodies in your garden but truly I'm not jealous. I've got many
undone things that have been waiting months for my attention, and long dark
evenings are just the thing for doing them, especially with a cosy wood
fire going. At least that's the plan until the catalogs arrive.

Anybody know, btw, if I can get away with planting a white birch this late?
We had to take two down and the little birch forest I've got looks nekkid.
