The march of progress
Instead of composing something intelligent, I've finally caved and harnessed the useless technology of twitter to the stupefying march of time in my garden. You will find updates under "gardening and telecommunication" on the right.
When they come to take me away, I'll be out back texting in today's low temperature.
One notable update is that it has yet to rain again.
And the first crocuses bloomed. The white one is C. pulchellus 'Zephyr', and the purple is
either C. sativus 'Cashmerianus' (Russell says it's "freer of flower" than regular old C. sativus) or; its wild ancestor C. cartwrightianus is notably more beautiful. I kind of planted everything together, so it took me a while to sort them out. [updated 11/15].
That is all.
