One gardener's observations, discoveries and random thoughts whilst simultaneously worshipping and dallying in a Cape Cod garden. "A garden," said Ralph Waldo Emerson, "is like those pernicious machineries which catch a man's coatskirt or his hand, and draw in his arm, his leg and his whole body to irresistable destruction."

A Few Signs of Spring

Even the most well-tended gardens can look a little discouraging in winter’s depths, and that goes doubly for gardens which were somewhat hastily transplanted before winter came home. So I’ve been focussing my attention elsewhere, in hopes of speeding along the season.

But today, I saw signs of things to come, like these first sprouts of crocuses…

…and this clump of daylilies beginning to green up…

…and this tiny sprig-let of yarrow (coronation gold!). And there’s a daylily that spent the winter in its pot that’s doing quite nicely, too.

    So some of your plants have officially survived the move, eh? YAY! It was a little worrying given the weather you’d said you’d had right around that time. Looks like the Midnight Garden will live on!
