Nursery dog Peetee delays departure for work as long as possible when it’s cold.
Whilst the animal world struggles to awaken these cold mornings, ancient stands of galanthus are already hard at work, defying the freezing nights and uncomfortable days in pursuit of reproduction.
Nursery birds pissed off at nursery humans reorganizing huge trees that are their nesting places.
Sometimes I just need change. I want to experiment. What will it look like if I move this over here and that over there? Change is good. Birds don’t like change.
Undo. Think. Go home. Take time off then revisit.
If I could move that building I would. New bed turned out great. I needed big trees to shade our perennials- take pressure off of them.
Bed menu- columnar sweetgum, hybrid dogwood, star magnolia, oak leaf hydrangea, bottlebrush buckeye, huge zelkova, aesculus pavia, weeping columnar Serbian spruce. Couple-a benches. Almost done.
Unique cultivar of Korean pine looks fine all by itself after being rearranged. When it’s cold like this it’s ok to rearrange plants.
Partner in crime Korean pine flanking the other one to welcome visitors into my perennial sales area. 25 year old hellebores died to the ground this winter- I wonder why, they are indestructible.
