Two years ago my girlfriend Cae gave me a cutting from her pussy willow. It seems to be thriving. I can't wait until it is big enough for me to cut a few branches to bring inside.
The weather is beautiful today; after a visit to my nephew's art show, I wandered into the garden. The lavender that looked beat up--nearly dead--from the living room window is actually doing pretty well. I trimmed back a lot of the old growth to give the new leaves a greater chance for success. I was also surprised to see that my oregano has made it through another harsh winter. Tough stuff, that.
Neal and I walked around the front to see where we might put in an asparagus plant. Norma has encouraged me with her advice on the Garden Along board, and I'm looking forward to a feast of fresh asparagus next year.
How goes your Saturday?
