As much as I would love to talk about reblooming hydrangeas and other wonderful blooming plants, the fact is that the weather is finally cooperating for us gardeners to get a bunch of chores done and I fully intend to work myself into a state of blissful exhaustion.
Over the years, I have had the pleasure of dozens of trips all over the world. Especially Europe. At one point, I travelled from Boston to Europe for a week every month. Let’s start with the plane ride.
Late April and early May in the northwest are high season for all kinds of lilacs. They are coming into full bloom and their heavenly fragrance is enough to put even this cantankerous gardener into a good mood.
There are a lot of things that make perfect sense economically. Likewise, there are a lot of things that don’t. I got to thinking about this earlier this week as I read about gasoline prices inching up.
