While it would be nice to say that I went outside between showers, that would be impossible as the rain came down constantly from shortly after dawn and continued through the night. Skipping a vase this week was a temptation but since I had to brave the rain to water the plants in the greenhouse, some flowers got cut on the way back inside. Some camellias, Stachyurus praecox, and Lonicera nitida ‘Baggesen's Gold’ got plopped into the pitcher.
Spring is full of possibilities for new life and a new gardening season as represented by a trio of pysanky eggs from the Ukraine and a few glass eggs from Italy.
The bright side of our cold spring is that snow in the mountains continues to fall and isn't melted by warmer temperatures which insures plenty of water for late summer when we sometimes run a bit low.
Just think, soon it might even be warm enough for eggs to start hatching!
