The weather flip-flopping has been crazy everywhere it seems! Last week we had yet another short stretch of summer-like heat, which was followed almost immediately by cooler temperatures in the 60s and even a spot of drizzle that surprised weather forecasters. It does make garden work more challenging! I've only had 4 dahlia tubers sprout (out of 16) so far so I know the anxious feeling of watching pots for signs of life. I hope you see a lasting shift in your temperatures soon.


Yes, it's a weird spring. I was just at Kopke's on Thursday, and very few people were there. Usually it would be swamped this time of year. I bought some annuals for my pots, but they'll stay on my porch and covered at night until the daytime temperatures warm a little more.

BETH — I hope Im not tempting fate by planting my new arrivals.

I know that return address! You got a shipment from Secret Garden Growers, a favorite nursery.

Here we just wrapped up the wettest April ever and the coldest in 11 years. I am craving a spell of two or three warm sunny days where I can get some work done in the garden.

LOREE — It was from Edelweiss Perennials. We keep having a nice day or two and then yuk. I am planting on the nice days as I told all my shippers to send plants in late April or early May. Can't wait any longer to get things in the ground.
