February 2009 Warming UP
Even the trays of baby plants in the shed got to come out for a sunbath both days. Ahhhh. It will be spring.
If you don't subscribe to the UCB daily plant email ,Botany Photo of the Day, you are missing out on an email that will cheer you on a cold day. Today's photo is here. I tried to post the picture of the Buddha's Hand but Blogger wouldn't upload it.
Each page from page 11 through 138 is for a description of a plant in your collection. You just jot down the common name, genus, species, description of your beloved beauties and end up with a journal that would be the envy of anyone who wants to know more about your garden. Plus you will have a reference for next year when you can't quite recall all those details. $10 at the link above.
The crocus are peeking up now that the snow and ice are melting. Take a look at the
Crocus Pages at The Alpine House. The photos will make you want to plant lots more crocus next fall.
I hope your garden is starting to peek out green tips and crocus flowers, too.
If you have a little book shopping energy, check out the American Nurseryman sale here.
Oh, and today is the day for the Link Latte at Dark Roasted Blend. Lots of interesting and unusual things to see.
