This morning the wonderful smell of hyacinth wafted into my living room windows, open for the first time this year. It was glorious.
I have a Darwinian approach to gardening, so I was pleased to see new growth on the sweet autumn clematis and the pee-gee hydrangea that I thought I had lost. It's amazing how plants survive even the roughest of conditions.
Sage and I put our broccoli into the raised bed this afternoon, and watered everything.
The trellis in the photo above, by the way, is a child gate that we never used, now turned sideways and nailed to the raised bed.
