In a Vase on Monday, March 7, 2016

A quick hello and goodbye as I head to the airport this morning for a week-long meeting in Washington, DC.  The weather has been sunny and warm over the past few days and I already regret I’ll miss some of the pleasures of spring in the Upstate.

Here is a peek at what’s blooming in a vase today and a look at what’s happening in the woodland too.


In the sunroom: Store-bought lilies and another stunted hyacinth blub, unintentionally tortured. I’ll do better next year, I promise.


In the woodland: Bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadensis), my favorite native wildflower.

For more vases, vist Kathy at Rambling in the Garden.

    Marian, I am Starla Turnage’s husband. Starla is a Master Gardner in Lexington, SC and friends with Nancy Brown, also a Master Gardner. Starla and I are going to London, England in August 2016, and I was wondering if you might suggest some gardens for her to see while in London. We will be there 4-5 days before our cruise. She will also be going to Versailles, near Paris, for a day to see the gardens there. Thank you in advance for your suggestions. Sincerely, Jeff Turnage

    Nice to see the Bloodroot. I went to the NC Botanical Garden last week hoping to see some but too early. Guess I’d better hurry back. Enjoy your trip.
