Albuquerque Update

Greetings to all!

It's been ages since I've been here.

Busy, busy, busy.

But spring has arrived. The crocus are blooming and the tulips are trying to make an appearance.

Time for spring cleanup.

But before I wander off into the jungle, I want to give you an update on all the little plantlings that journeyed west to Albuquerque.

Believe it or not, they appear to be doing quite well for the most part. Despite the transplant in the June heat and sun, many have survived. While I don't have a complete list, here's a few that definitely made it.

Artemisia, artemisia, artemisia. I planted it everywhere, and it's growing everywhere. Which is a good thing in Albuquerque. Many folks wouldn't think so.

Grape Hyacinth. One of those lovely spring bloomers that will spread with reckless abandonment. Which is a good thing.

Little daffodils. These little beauties are called 'Minnow', which is appropriate as they are very tiny flowers. They also like to multiply rapidly.

These are just a few. I also know that the hollyhocks are alive and kicking, along with the peach and apricot trees, the grasses, and a host of other things. Like the iris and sedum. Hopefully it will all fill in for my sister in a year or two.

One year for roots, one year to fill out.

This should be a fun year.
