April Reaches A Fever Pitch

Flowers from Leora - Bleeding Hearts, Wild Phlox and Dogwood.

Having a blast as spring bursts on the scene in Virginia. Obviously doing more than writing. But I will catch up . . . the past week has included a visit to the Historic Plant Center at Monticello. A wildflower walk in Sugar Hollow. An ongoing obsession with lilacs that has history. Annual seed plantings in our gardens. Native plantings from last year rise like the phoenix from the flames in our much abused front garden beds. Weeding, weeding and furthermore, weeding. And, I consider resuscitating two insanely overgrown raised beds through several different methods. Stay tuned, peeps.
