I took a little break from the html coding and planted some double snowdrops that my friend Bub had potted up and given me on Thursday. Some people find the double ones grotesque, but I appreciate their intricate beauty. I decided to plant them near the variegated pagoda dogwood, which I hope is still alive. Bub also tucked in a few pushkinia, and I planted them in a corner of the Birthday Garden.
What differentiates a bulb from a perennial plant is that the nourishment for the flower is stored within the bulb itself.…There is something miraculous about the way that a little grenade of dried up tissue can explode into a complete flower.
