Once upon a time, there was a blog called Talking Dirty. It still exists, as a matter of fact, but it’s no longer being updated. Instead, Tamara has started a new blog called Can You Dig It? The design is certainly leaner and cleaner, and the content, at least, as much as I’ve read, is just as good. Oh yeah, and it’s YATGB (yet another Texas garden blog), which means she’ll be growing while it’s still snowing here. If you stop in, tell her Kathy sent you.
Now, the digging and dividing of perennials, the general autumn cleanup and the planting of spring bulbs are all an act of faith. One carries on before the altar of delayed gratification, until the ground freezes and you can’t do any more other than refill the bird feeder and gaze through the window, waiting for the snow. . . . Meanwhile, it helps to think of yourself as a pear tree or a tulip. You will blossom spectacularly in the spring, but only after the required period of chilling.
