It's still cold, but it's lovely. Don't you think this front bed needs to be widened a bit? I bought a Stewartia "Sky Rocket" at Highland Gardens today. I think I'm going to plant it at the far end of the rock wall in back. Today is my mother's yarhzeit (I'm not Jewish, but the idea of keeping the anniversary of a death in remembrance has meaning for me). I will plant the tree for her. Twenty three years and I still can't really think about her much because I miss her so. I'm lucky to have been blessed with such a warm, smart, loving mother, and more blessed still to have so many people to love-- my father, my brother, and my best friend, three uniquely charming, affectionate, and awesome children, and a husband who is pretty much flesh of my flesh at this point. His flesh is much better looking than mine, but you get the idea.
Happy Spring, people!
