Hi Lady Eleanor...<quoted text>
Hi Dear Rose, hope you soon got a good night's sleep, and feel all the better for it this morning.
I could help you there with breaking up the clay if'n you was nearer....we have tons of slate
waste at our disposal, also slabs of the stuff, in fact we dispensed with the lawn and made a patio
using the slate in a crazy paving manner, instead of concreting them together they have
little ground cover plants inbetween....quite pretty.
I wasn't aware until I read it, as it seemed quite cold over the Winter months, but we have
apparently had a particularly mild Winter according to those who know about these things,
as a result Summer plants are coming into bloom early. Bluebells which normally carpet the
woods are showing their faces now, and I couldn't believe it when I discovered the tulips
are opening in my garden this morning.....:)
I am thinking about starting the tommies soon...and a new one is available which is black...
dunno...but, it has the benefits of the blueberry, the aubergine and all things dark.
The Pride send their love to the Pack
and I send my love to you...<3
Spring has returned at least for today... The sun is shining and that is always welcome... We have had the worst time with rain this past week... They estimated that we got between 4 and 6 inches of rain 3 days ago and we have more rain coming in...
So my yard is still kinda mushy in spots and when the rain gets here it will turn back into as muddy swamp...
I went out into the yard yesterday and turned the mulch and did a general clean up... I am afraid two of my roses didn't make it... I am holding hope that they are just slow in showing spring growth...
I need to get out there today and prune out the dead stems out of the roses that are showing new growth...
I have a beautiful 3 foot tall white pine tree that I am going to plant as soon as weather and ground will permit... That is something I really miss about Alabama... When I lived there the smell of the pines was awesome...
I hope that you are enjoying a beautiful day and that You and Yours are Happy and Healthy... Sending You all of my Best Wishes...
