Over to IHOP for some of that down home country fried food. Always a treat. Kate and I did our business meeting, deposited several thousand dollars in Wells Fargo and came back home. Lois was here. She commented on the amaryllis which have bloomed yet again for me. I do nothing special to them except take them outside in the summer, then back inside in the winter. At some point they decided its ready to bloom, so I put them in a window and water and feed them.
I have no tours tomorrow and so have a good stretch with no art tour work. I like that.
Went outside and looked at the trees. Looks like at least five, two Norway Pines and two River Birch got trimmed back to the hose I used to protect them from sun scald. Those rascally rabbits I presume. In the other area, though, two white pines thrived during the winter, as did a Norway Pine, an oak and, I believe, a River Birch. Feels good to see them growing.
The garlic has begun to push through the soil, a bit pale under the mulch, but I removed it and they will green up fast. Garlic are hardy plants that like a cold winter and they had one this year. They come to maturity in June/July. Drying, then using our own garlic will be a treat.
Wandering around outside gets the horticulture sap rising. I’m itchy to do stuff.
Signed up for a Natural Rhythms and Time course at the Arboretum. It’s a symposium put on by the University’s Institute for Advanced Studies, a real find. If you live in the Twin Cities, I recommend getting on its mailing list.
