|It's a slow spring, which is great, since many plants are staying in the greenhouse longer, giving me extra time to plant.|
A short post folks, as I know we are all busy with our personal lives, there are times when I get too caught up with deadlines too. I am moving offices at work, hosting an offsite with our My Little Pony team from the Hub and Hasbro (always great to meet with the director, writer and exec's from our LA studio and the Hub), healing an index finger infection from the alpine garden ( don't ask - but visualize that whale video on uTube when it pops and takes my nail with it), preparing a book proposal and hosting a bus load of New England Primula Society members for a garden party and cocktail party ( which, OK…. I had to cancel).
Oh, and I closed on my other house ( which is on our property -yes I finally sold it - yay!), and trying to basically just catch a breath between a long list of Powerpoint presentations including a board presentation to our local Botanic Garden on Sunday about the Future of Guest Experience, and 3 presentations for work about exciting stuff yet stuff I can't really share with you ( Oh Hasbro - sometimes you are like working for Google).
You all deserve a blog post, so here are some pics from last Sunday which I've been meaning to share, and since it's been raining all week, a few other dreary photos from the garden since surely, you all are getting wet weather also. Even though we all may gripe and moan about how cool and wet it has been, the plants are certainly not complaining.
|Some plants cannot wait, like these Tuberoses. A row goes into the vegetable garden early, so that they can get a head start.|
|Scented pelargoniums and many, if not most of my plants, are still in the greenhouse where it is warm. It was 38º yesterday! That's OK. Summer will come soon, and I'd rather have this gradual spring than one were it turns 90º instantly.|
|One of the biggest lemon-scented geraniums ever! I was to trim this topiary so badly, but its flowers are so nice, I am waiting until they pass.|
|Awesome, right? Soon I will have many cuttings from which to start a whole new bench of scented geraniums. For now, let it bloom, let it bloom, let it bloom.|
