The gentleman sent this to me yesterday. He has a sense of humor.
Right now, I can barely see the trees in my neighbor's back garden for the swirls of snow. A blizzard warning has been posted and we are all hunkered down. Sipping tea. Baking quiche. Stitching, reading. And nursing some big bad bruises. I spent hours outside yesterday, clearing my car, and trying to clean snow off the remaining trees around the building. I salvaged some downed red bud and dogwood branches, and brought them inside to force. My forcing, etc. book says I should have red bud blooms by mid March. Nothing about the dogwood. Has anyone ever tried it? Regardless, the branches are beautifully sculptural.
Take care, wherever you are. xo!
