Shivering in Vermont

5-23-06 VERMONT: This evening here it is in the 40’s, breezy and quite cool. There was over 5” of rain in the gauge which only goes up to 5.0. It was a wet two weeks. The grass is ready to be mowed for the first time. I counted about ten holes in the gardens representing perennials that turned up missing. Trips to the nursery coming up.

In bloom: forget-me-not, pulmonaria, viola, trillium, bleeding heart, Virginia blue bells, daffodil, dandelion, clatonia, lamium, epimedium, jack-in-the-pulpit, packysandra, creeping phlox, alkanet, wild strawberry, ajuga, vinca, blueberry, elderberry, forsythia, Judd viburnum, honey suckle, apple.

Are you saying someone dug up your plants??? That's not very Vermonty.
Incidentally, Steve says he hasn't flamed your blog with those bizarre comments. Seems you have a bonafide weirdo as a fan, Howie!
You've finally arrived...
