Congratulations to garden blogger Nan Ondra, whose book Foliage was awarded a Garden Book Award from the American Horticultural Society. According to the press release, “books are judged by the AHS Book Award Committee on qualities such as writing style, authority, accuracy, and physical quality.” Go visit Hayefield and offer your congratulations.
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.
