Is there anything worse for a gardener to receive garden catalogs and have no garden? Ok- obviously there are worse things. But it is definitely not on my list of favorite developments of the last year. I have visions of peonies dancing through my head… along with some lady’s mantle and iris and roses.
I’ve been considering a move to Zone 7- a newly expanded possibility given this– and my garden catalogs have set me dreaming about all the plants I could grow in Zone 7. Camellias, fabulous Wisterias, Agapanthus! Outside! I could plant Dahlias and not have to lift them every fall (my sister will be thrilled, as she’s had to do that on my behalf when I injured myself once, and when my husband did another time)!
Although it would be helpful to know where I am actually going to live in a year or so, it is so much fun to dream about all the possibilities. Fabulous lilies. Blowsy, vivid hydrangeas. Boxwoods without the winter cover! It will be a dream come true.
Now all I have to do is decide. But the possibilities are endless!
