I’m interrupting the posts about Japan to report some breaking news from our garden: our first Snowdrops (Galanthus nivalis) are blooming!
This past weekend it finally started to feel like November, with a sort of raw gray cold settling in. I realized that the available time for winter preparations was slipping away.
It’s a good thing I got the 200 daffodil bulbs from Colorblends planted pretty fast, because hard on their heels (do bulbs have heels?) came the tulip bulbs from John Scheepers.
