Digging for Victory over Global Warming


well…… every little bit helps
Spring appears to have arrived.!!!!
The daffs are in flower, I saw my first bumble bee yesterday a huge one.
Buds on blackcurrants and blueberry and the self fertile kiwi are opening!
I planted early peas, shallots garlic and onions yesterday.

Hi, Tussie!. I wondered whether you had emigrated! Am about to sow the mallow seeds you kindly sent last autumn, and was concerned coz no reply to last couple
of comms. Your mallow is going to be perfect for our garden next year, btw,

Best Wishes

Hi T, How I envy you your flowering daphs... I am gardening in Ontario, Canada. The snow is almost 2 feet deep on my garden... I have to content myself with seed catalogues and gardening books... No bees...just sparrows and squirrels at the feeder. Sigh.

Hi David, sorry, no I haven't emigrated, the wild mallo only grow about 18 inches by the way, not like the nursery mallows.

Lori, the only snow we had was like a light sifting of icing sugar. Have fun planning with the catalogues.

Hi Lori, Well now I don't feel so bad as I have one foot of snow less than you do in my garden here in Massachusetts USA. Will it ever all melt away...

You poor things - wrap up well. Keep browsing the GoY photos and think ahead....Spring will soon be here - or there! Hi Tussie - I'm going to plant my seeds any day now, too!
