Things are just a little bit crazed in my life, at the same time other things are getting better. I feel I’m in the refiner’s fire. This is one reason I bought fresh flowers last weekend, the first since the final zinnias of last fall.
I got back to the garden to trim roses, some of which were sprouting a few green leaves. This made me wonder about making rose cuttings and creating some new plants. I now have cuttings from the two old fashioned roses with the fragrant red blossoms at the end of my garden and the pink fairy rose that used to be in my garden and is now in the Plot Against Hunger garden.
It was cool, but bright enough to do trimming. Lots of things are up, including the columbines–
and the love-in-a-mist. I’m looking forward to the explosion of blooms. Meanwhile, I hope to plant a few things this weekend, under the varied row covers I’ve purchased to see which works best against varmints…I hope your week is going swimmingly!
