The questions keep coming

After the continual rain this last weekend, I decided that getting the crocosmia that have regrown near my favourite rose bush out was an opportunity I couldn’t miss.

Unfortunately, there are a few which are growing very close to the fir tee and digging them out would probably entail lifting the fennel as well. So, if I am to get them out, it will need to wait until the fennel goes in the herb garden I hope to establish in the spring.

On the other hand, I think I might have noticed something which may be a pleasant surprise on the other side of the tree. 

I say ‘might’ because the green shoots could be something along the lines of Spanish bluebells, which like the apple tree think it is spring already (haven’t they noticed the December gloom?). On the other hand, I’m rather hoping they could be garlic which didn’t sprout last year.

About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.

    Even though Florida is known for warm winters, today was one of many that broke a record at 85 degrees f. I hope you get your wish and the sprouts are the garlic.
