Last summer’s garden; for contrast with the last post, and so you can feel my particular pain as I await a weekend Nor’easter. At least the gardens will get an extra blanket for next week’s deep freeze. As it is now they’re mostly covered with ice. My particular favorite is the salmon poppy (above.) And didn’t the roses put on quite a show last year? I’m so desperate to garden that I cut four African violet leaves and set them to root in a planter on my mantel; they look very perky and determined. I’ve compiled a little syllabus of gardening books to get those of you through who are in the same boat. But, don’t forget, there are always seed catalogues and daydreaming.
