Just planted Invincibelle hydrangea and Burning Hearts dicentra, beating the rain by minutes. Both are trial plants and quite small. Invincibelle is from Proven Winners and Burning Hearts is from Skagit Gardens. I removed a huge clump of Siberian iris to make room for these, replanting the irises in front of the single white lilac, where another plant failed to make it through the winter. Sometimes gardening reminds me of furniture rearranging more than anything else.
In its own way, frost may be one of the most beautiful things to happen in your garden all year . . . Don’t miss it. Like all true beauty, it is fleeting. It will grace your garden for but a short while this morning. . . . For this moment, embrace frost as the beautiful gift that it is.
