Re: CULT: anticipation

24oF here last night, but not too much damage, since it's been regularly chilly off and on, so not a lot of tender foliage out yet. I didn't bother to cover any of the irises or bring pots inside (other than this year's seedlings that were already up).

I go back and forth between despair over the lack of possibilities in surviving seedlings and enthusiasm over the possibilities in suriving seedlings <g> each time I walk the rows.

No sign of buds showing yet on the few SDBs here, & haven't checked the I. germanica under the eaves, which usually are the first to bloom.

Roundup'd a some of the grass between rows using a 2 litre cola bottle over the sprayer nozzle (thanks for that idea, whoever it was) to keep the spray on the ground.

Anybody seeing SDBs blooming in Tennessee yet?
