They are not very palatable.

Me too. We shall see.

It is so hard to avoid the other word. LOL

My language is in the gutter along with much of the garden. Mother Nature can play dirty tricks.

Bloom Day, this June, is serious business. It looks like spring in the garden with no leaves on the trees. June is usually the time of prolific blooms in my garden. This year is different. A plaque of gypsy moth... Continue reading

You are so kind, Beth. I look forward to Fling and spending time with you sharing gardening adventures.

Kathy, I know you love spring just as much as I love it. It is a welcome relief from the barren winter months.

Robin: That is sad concerning your first blogs but just take an educated guess and celebrate as you should. Why not!
oh, I like term very much! Thank you, Les.
You always say the nicest things. Thank you so much.
Kris, I have to think we would have met! I have to come visit you at your new digs. Do you work every day? I am happy you have landed in such a nice place.
Kris, I hope winter is done although it is cold this morning. The weather report looks like warming temps for the next week. Gibbs training continues.
I do post less but then there is less to say. I am so glad you have Annie. Let spring return for the next ten weeks.
And you as well, thank you.
Thank you Gail. I always enjoy your posts as well and have learned so much from other bloggers. Gibbs is getting to be a big boy but he still likes to pounce up on a lap now and then which can be quite a surprise. He must weight 50 lbs by now. As for meeting, serendipity!

It would be fun to see the arboretum's burn. Now that is really a controlled burn!

Thanks, Vicki. Wish you were here to share with us.

Perhaps if there is snow on the ground you could burn? Always good to be safe though.
Toggle Commented Apr 1, 2016 on Controlled Burn-2016 at Ledge and Gardens
Lisa, thank you. Gibbs took it all in stride.
