Nobody sees a flower

Nobody sees a flower, really, it is so small.
We haven't time - and to see takes time
like to have a friend takes time

Dreaming of gardens to come on a very cold day.....

Me, too. I am considering planting v. many more marigolds, so that I will have their petals on the Day of the Dead. I am considering putting in more toad lillies and jack in the pulpit in the woodland garden and I am considering putting in more lettuce. What are you going to grow?

Mostly native plants and herbs. I am still learning this land :-)

We have gophers to contend with now, and deer, and moles. I saw a garden snake the other day and I hope she stays.

There is native garden nursery near us and I hope to learn more about Pacific Northwest gardening from the owner.

I can plant roses - they grow like weeds here - if I can keep them from the deer. Well, the deer can have a few. It's their meadow, too.

I will miss my sages, though, and my California natives. Nothing smells quite the same way.

I am looking forward to putting in more Japanese plants, as these do very well here and can handle the cold.

As always,
