For my 400th post, building on what I was thinking yesterday, I was thinking about the garden. This time of year, the garden seems so perfect. So much is in bloom, and this garden, because it is right by the road, attracts a lot of attention, comment and compliments. As the gardener, you’d think I’d be pleased, wouldn’t you? But no!
And finally, perhaps one of the nicest things of all–Black Lace elderberry (sambucus nigra) without a hint of the borer, after I gave it a hard pruning as was suggested by those nice folks at Proven Winners. It’s got buds and flowers on it too–quite a lovely gift to both me and the wildlife!
