Blooming Now in Self’s Garden: 2nd Monday of February (2013)

Daffodils!  Self planted them BEHIND the Alstroemeria Third Harmonic, My Bad

Daffodils! Self planted them BEHIND the Alstroemeria “Third Harmonic”, which ended up being MUCH taller than the daffodils, so you can’t see the daffodils without walking right up to the edge of the flower bed (Sigh)

    🙂 – these garden updates are great – yes, in gardening as in life, seems to go by height too.

    In Nn CA you are really very blessed.

    My family and I spent Chinese New Year at Longwood Gardens on Route 1.

    Pictures on the way, but slowly –

    lar me kyar me

    as we say in (Socialist) Burma.

    The one and only time I’ve been to Longwood was in the early 1980s — Dear Departed Sis took me; she was studying in Wharton at the time … but I remember how beautiful the gardens were. Happy, Happy Chinese New Year!

      Thank you! I used to live in Phila – 15 years while at Penn – and so went there a bit – interesting to see the way the garden has changed –

      and remained the same – like how old the purple bougainvillea in the conservatory are – or the new pawlovnia (sp?) trees they put in to replace the old ones that were taken out –

      I only have been there at intervals of 6-10 years now – but my son first visited when he was 13 – and was enchanted by the bonsai jasmine –

      and one summer I went there right after having a colonoscopy, and the roses on the arches to the right of the entrance were in full bloom –

      one family friend who was a Quaker and whom I first met through other family friends lived at Crosslands retirement community near there.
