it seems hard that when the that the garden looks almost perfect it means that it all needs to be done again. the hostas must come out next year to be split and replanted while trying to remember all the things that they have overwhelmed but which are probably still there. despite thinning everything by a third every year, still they quickly reach the point of open war and covert assassination. saw Marigold Hotel yesterday-a little cute and contrived but oh lord, why do English writers and filmmakers make England and the English look such a misery- or is that just for the export market?

garden is almost overwhelming-if you never hear from me again you'll know it was little shop of horrors all over again.

alliums here in reno are so free in seeding that every spring i pull out hundred and still there are hundreds.

walking the dogs at the university today. a compendium of the most unfortunate architectural ideas of the past 60 years, yet the excellent landscaping somehow blends it all together into something pleasing. and if someday we need a museum of bad modern architecture, well there it is, complete.

the peonies that i hybridized and grew from seed will bloom in the next few days

will keep you posted

after six weeks of above average temps. last night it rained and then light snow this morning-the garden loved it-the greens incredibly intense. a remarkable year, everything seems twice as big as in other years-20 stalks on your eremurus-great
