Sugarcoated Garden

Sun 12 Nov 2006

Jack Frost wandered through the garden last night, leaving every plant looking like it had been dipped in sugar.

Sedum spurium 'Fuldaglut'

Even though the cold was a bit of a shocker to wake up to, I couldn’t help appreciate the beauty.

Heuchera 'Petticoats'

When I have the time, I’ve been keeping myself busy packaging up seeds I saved this summer. Even though it turns out to be a much bigger project than planned, it’s so rewarding to share seeds with others. I can’t imagine my garden without the contributions I’ve gotten over the years. I may not remember the botanical name of each and every plant, but I can remember everyone who shared a piece of their garden with me.

Oh! I also found large plastic cups to use for my brug cuttings. So I guess I’ll be chopping my brugs down and starting an additional batch of plants. All the other cuttings are doing well except I lost one rose. I’ll have to try again in the spring.
