I wish I were.  See last message.  I did get some lily of the valley dug up
for a friend and will plant something in the little box where it was.  It
was the last bit left along my driveway.  The smell in June was heavenly,
but they turned rusty and ratty for most of the rest of the summer.  I have
sedum there now, mostly, and climbing roses above going up the wall (sort of).

Another mysterious spring -- what is going to come up where?  The squirrels
moved even more bulbs than usual, it seems, and I am getting new surprises
every day in the bulb line, not to mention the native plants which always
invade and pop up here and there.  I don't think it would take very long
for wild nature to reclaim this patch of garden, but then, it's rather
'rustic' to begin with.

I did also get some, almost enough, dirt removed from one big box so I can
crowbar it apart and move it to its new spot.  Maybe by the weekend.

Lettuce is doing well, and I lost almost none of the lavender foliage.
