Travails in my zone 7 Virginia garden are interrupted by occasional travel postings.

April into May
We've had the most glorious spring - clear and cool, with almost enough rain. The tulips have lasted and lasted. I always think of Henry Mitchell when it comes to tulips - he who was known to take a drill to the frozen ground in January to plant them, and who railed against the string of 80-degree days we often get in April that cook them instantly. He would have loved this spring.
