I always cut the leaves just as the flower buds are showing and as the flowers start to fade the new leaves arrive.

I will have to tell my husband how it works! We tend to not add much in the way of man-made items to the garden so those lights are a hard sell. Plus they would need to be used inside so they could just be whisked outdoors as desired and I can't figure out a spot indoors. Fun to dream!

I figure just having them in water for the length of the show is probably fatal.

Nothing helps me get through these last days of cold weather like a flower show. The ones you mentioned sound terrific. Lots of history behind those institutions.

Not yet. I've seen them in the catalog but seeing them in person made a big difference. My husband didn't say no, and he seemed intrigued. We'll see what happens.

Same here. Spring is such a tease in our part of the world.

Alas, I can't grow the black version of mondo grass which is so cool looking. My autumn fern has fronds that are still green and not too bad looking so maybe I should plant some snowdrops near it. Better than bare dirt!

I can't wait to see if my willows will root.

Very messy in my garden as well. Worked about 5 hours today but only I can see the difference!

i'm not sure what it is. Could be a red Astilbe or an annual. I will try to remember to ask them.

It must be so much fun to play in there!

I guess you could also take this as talking about hope for folks in the hospital, but it seemed like such an apt message for the moment. Got teary-eyed reading it and remembering Bobby Kennedy.

Thanks for the heads up. That garden has gotten lots of attention.

The yellow one has been very slow to enlarge but hasn't died. The T. albidum was coming up before we had a cold spell and this snow and this has been its first winter since being planted. Not sure what to expect.

We have a couple of varieties that we've managed to control but they can be invasive. I am thinking that I will cut this pink one back every spring so it stays relatively compact. That's assuming it takes root outdoors when I move it from the vase.

The Vermont Willow Nursery has amazing willows if you are looking for anything unusual. That's where my friend got the pink variety. Here's a link: http://www.willowsvermont.com

Yes, great sense of texture in their garden and their plants all seemed happy and healthy.

I have had good luck with Hakone grass but I have never put it across a path like that. I may have to figure out where I could do that.

I constantly see photos of allium seedheads looking beautiful in gardens and I wonder if they know something I don't!

Thanks for the critter update. I will have to look into their habits a bit more.

I remember a big April snowstorm. It was years ago but . . .

I don't mind winter too much as it is nice to have a break and sit and read and do indoor projects. But the last month or so when the weather is on and off again makes it as we are all definitely ready for spring to really arrive and stay here.

i have experienced more than a dusting in April. Historically we have had it in May but I have never had that unhappy experience.

Glad we had the tiny bit of snow that fell this week as it went down to 12 degrees overnight last night. Now we are going to start going up again.

Her quilts are amazing but when you see the back of them you really understand how impressive they are.
