What Day Will It Be?
I'm sitting here trying to find something to read about hosta that shows others are feeling the quickening heartbeat of Spring. The Forum is for the first time since I got addicted to Hosta, not so active. Remember when the first TWO pages of the main page had new posts almost around the clock? And now we have a couple of month of posts with the last ones almost 2 months old?
Well, take heart! Yesterday the flock of robins returned from parts further south, headed your way. Last year they came Feb 9. This year they came March 7. Migrating north, from here in southern Alabama.
They feed on the wild cherry-sized berries of this particular camphor tree, for some reason CHOICE, and located just outside our garden fence on the neighbor's shady property. It took them about 90 minutes to strip the tree and move on, trekking north!
It's almost over, this winter which began deceptively mild, and changed mid-term to a wicked wicked storm machine. But enough. Get your tools and supplies ready. Time to get yourself ready for a really fine hosta growing and generally all-around sweet gardening year. See ya.
