Happy New Year! It's hard to believe we're already a week into 2008. The weather here has been delightful, especially today where temperatures climbed above 70 degrees. I'm still working on getting the rest of my bags of mulch and Leaf Grow out. It looks like I have around 10-11 bags left, so I've made some progress.
My next project is starting the daylily seeds. Despite my efforts at cutting back (I did buy less this time, so that's something), I still seem to have some 72 crosses. There are more of my own this year, something I hope continues to increase each year. Each cross contains anywhere from a couple seeds to thirty-some in each cross. What fun I'll be having! It's great to dream of future blooms. Having lots of green growing in winter makes the time seem to go faster.
Some book reviews will be coming around directly. Another thing I like to do in winter...read, although, actually, I like to read pretty much all the time.
Next up, however, is another Chanticleer post. Chanticleer is one of the most amazing gardens I have ever been privileged to visit. I've also been looking back at pictures and there are quite a few things I've meant to show and haven't gotten around to...so, never fear, there's lots to talk about in the next few months before Spring hits.
