The return of the lettuce

All by itself, it popped up in the box where it grew last summer, like nothing happened.

I shucked off the dead leaves and there it was!


Now start growing

The waiting game, UPS style

Coming soon to my house and garden:

Hurry up, Mr. Mailman, before it gets cold again!

My plants arrived!

Figures my plant order arrives the coldest week of spring so far… One’s a bulb that’s living in the crisper another minute, as recommended. But the perennial grasses and salvia plumosa are little plants…

Here’s what the purple love grass should look like come summer…

Delightful! So far, though, it looks like this.

I think the nursery sent it too early. I clearly don’t want to kill it. It’s supposed to be in the 30s all week still. At least the Japanese ghost ferns are still en route.

What to do?

Welcome back, friends

Hey! Where’d you come from?

Next time, tell your buddies to come too?

Happy spring! But…

I killed this fern once already. Left it in the pot, jammed something else in, too, watered well, and the fern somehow came back.

Today is technically spring, but March is still way too early to put him outside. There hasn’t even been an afternoon he could sit outside. He’s hanging in there, with the others.

I’m getting super itchy to grow more stuff.

Around the amaryllis

Got back from Philadelphia (and Gaffney’s!) to find this guy. Took his photo all around.
