to the mtns last night to look at the blood moon solar eclipse-hmmm. garden flourishing although on sat. humidity down to 7%-things most splendid ever although i believe i feel that way every spring-was in the mtns growing medicinal herbs last summer so garden dried out a bit- most things seem ok but rhubarb very spindly-this year i shall coddle it-first time in many years i havent added any new plants although it is still early-went to a good growing nursery yesterday and either already had or didnt want everything i saw-what a prickly thing rosa hugonis-after i eliminated pimpinellifolia  swore off such things but maybe not-these lilies are amazing

this year all the magnolias bloomed together-a first-usually stellata is finished when the others are begining. an urn of lilies -alyssum muralis with aubrieta audrey-spring can do color combos that would be perishing in summer-lathyrus vernis really a nice little thing-philadelphus aurea-good flowers and scent but the leaves are the thing. rosa hugonis and forsythia pendula both done from cuttings 2 years ago have decided to flourish-campsis flava is now half the size it was when i planted it 3 years ago. 1;230;468 siberian elms sprouting in the garden-they are nasty unkempt abandoned looking things until they
