|SCILLA BLOSSOMS AND SNOW BANK...|
|SCILLA UNDER OLD APPLE TREES|
Tuesday, 8:30 AM. 37 degrees F at the ferry dock, 35 on the back porch. Wind NE, gusty. The sky is mostly overcast and cloudy, the humidity high, at 91%. The barometer is falling, currently at 30.43".
I went to Hauser's yesterday, to reserve hanging baskets for the porch and decks. They have done a fantastic job of erecting the two 80' greenhouse ranges they purchased from Baily's, which has gone out of business. It was a rainy, foggy, cold, dismal day. But it was cheered unexpectedly by the presence of large drifts of Scilla blooms contrasting with snowbanks and old apple trees.
Scilla bulbs will spread over time, and time is what it takes to produce scenes like this.
