Tonight we are expecting our first frost for the Triangle area, so yesterday I gathered the last of the flowers for the season. As these summer beauties bow out for the year, I am looking forward the subtle beauty of viburnum buds, bare twisty branches of curly willow and bright redtwig dogwood. Then the hellebores and Ice Follies narcissi will begin their show in mid February, and before we know it spring will be popping out all over the place.
Today I planted about 220 tulips, (in the rain) for my March weddings, and I will start batches of Paperwhites and some beautiful amaryllis to chase away the gray days of January. More about these later.
