Normally I post some glorious photo of the bogs or something before I start writing… but this time there is no need for a photo. So what’s with the photo you ask? Its a random late spring photo from a few years back! I have to put something up!
After coming through an amazingly mild winter, we’ve been dealing with a very cool spring. We recorded temp a high of only -2C back on April 4th, and low of -9C on April 5th… crazy! But generally we’ve been around 8-15C for highs. With that… there is not much moving!!! Some of my Sarracenia have 10cm flower scapes… but that’s about it. Everything else looks pretty sleepy!
So what can tell you about? Well I cleaned everything up for the spring since my last post. All the pine needles have been removed and the dead material has been removed from the plants and I’ve been plugging up squirrel holes as is common practice this time of year. Really, that’s about it! I know… boring!
I’m happy to report that every plant, including out planted seedlings came through just fine this winter. Everything looks fresh and healthy. If we get out this cool weather pattern, hopefully things will start moving! But according to the 10 day forecast… nothing above 18C, it will be slow but steady.
