I had been moping, grieving, and sulking for a few days now but today, I ventured out because the weather is nicer and lo and behold, my clematis Grandiflora decided to put on a show. This is its first year of blooming although it is already 3 years old. Ville de Lyon and Serenata are so dependable, they keep coming trying to outdo each other. The corn I planted two weeks ago seems to be going nowhere so I will try again on 4/5 which according to the Farmers Almanac should be a good day for planting above ground crops and corn in particular. I will try the 3 sisters planting guide which will include corn, then beans two weeks later then squash. I just bought the seeds from Parkseeds and this is a try-out so I will see if it works. Here are some pictures of Grandiflora (white), Ville de Lyon (pink) and Serenata (purple).
