The daffodils shown here are determined to do their thing despite the "damp" conditions. Years ago we planted 20,000 daffodils along our north path, both along the shoreline and up the slope of the old sand and gravel pit. It's inspiring to think that visitors will see these daffodils in 100 years and wonder when they were planted. Unfortunately, these submerged clumps are doomed. Oh the vagaries of nature!
By the way, if you are reading this blog, there is a a little blue "comment" tab at the bottom of each post. Feel free to comment, add input and/or ask questions. The intent of this blog is not only to give a "smidge" of what is going on daily out in the gardens but to interact with volunteers, visitors and those interested in what we're doing at Rotary Gardens. The image below is of a small, golden fullmoon maple (Acer shirasawanum 'Autumn Moon') in the Japanese garden near one of our lanterns. Of course deciduous plants haven't "leafed out" yet, but they will soon. Are we forgetting about winter yet?!
