better late than never
while it is already late in the season, i've been determined to plant some things this spring/summer. we have a scrappy area in front of our house full of periwinkle, violets, a multiplying stand of heleborus and some ailing azalea. i would so love to have a tall cottage garden there, but alas, it is quite shady. i would like at least to have some woodland flowers and edibles, and am determined to experiment. today provided a break in the recent monsoon, and i finally managed to plant a few seedlings i picked up at last weekend's farmer's market. tristan got to dig in the dirt, wonder at worms and place the young plants in the earth. i can't wait for more of this, though i do hope the plants survive!
