Yesterday I thought I would visit the sleeping garden and make some spring plans. I like to see the winter bones and it's now that I can definitely assess the need for more winter interest. I am greedy, I don't like the span between the fall killing frost and the first sprouts of spring. I want to see a bloom in December, January and February! A tall order eh? Why is is we poo-poo the hollies, evergreen trees, camellias and such during the heights of summer when they are so vitally important during the drab days of winter? No more I say! I am making a conscious effort to do better! I have already ordered a witch hazel and have plans to buy a thuja green giant. Last fall I planted a possumhaw which I hope will reward me with red berries this year. I am anxiously awaiting the blooms of my lenten rose and shamelessly as a peeping tom I'm looking up their "dresses" regularly for flower buds! Take a walk in my barren landscape and give me some suggestions that maybe I haven't thought of. I don't mind, after all we're FRIENDS!
