But first, a sign you might find at the Electric Company:
"We would be delighted if you send in your payment.
However, if you don't, you will be."
I got me an elderberry that no one in Lincoln has--went to Omaha (where a fountain will be coming from, HUGE nursery, my lands). Sambucus racemosa 'Sutherland Gold.' I'm excited about this plant if it looks anything like Nan Ondra's . So, for $25 it's 18" tall and wide and in a 5 gallon container. Not bad, I think. Plus I hear it's a fast grower? Will it cross pollinate with the Black Lace thirty feet away? Sutherland is in front of some dark green cedars, beneath a tall mystery-deciduous tree, and behind a bench, where it's full glory will tickle one's cranium in a few years. Np pictures cuz it's pointless.
The garden is greening up (reddening and oranging and yellowing and pinking, too). A few first blooms on the Spiraea thunbergii 'Ogon' Mellow Yellow. Cascade willow leafing out. I planted some milkweed seeds today, enjoying the 68 degrees, sun, no wind, and no rain--we've had 4" in our yard over the last 8-9 days. Silly post this is. Move on, now.
