Where did all that wind come from? I went out and finished de-leafing the Old Gourd Garden, and the wind was relentless! I discovered that the veronica groundcover is blooming its beautiful blue, which had been hidden under the leaves. Lovely. It was slow going around the mahonias. Ouch! They literally had me bleeding! I finally finished taking out the old leaves, but new ones are already being blown back. I jooged as many toady-frog holes as I could. It's amazing how they make a perfect rosette of leaves that they pull down into the hole for protection. Hey, toadies! That's a dead giveaway to where you are! It's a wonder anything can live with their excavations. They love to get under the iris and lilies especially!
I want to tackle that huge rosemary in the Poison Garden. I will do some more rootings. It's probably too early to start other cuttings like forsythia and serissa, but I want to do some more of those, too. I gave away the last rosemary that I had yesterday. Oh, there are so many things that I want to do. I sure hope that it will be a little more pleasant today, and I won't have to look like I'm not of sound mind, wearing a visor for the sun and ear muffs for the wind.

The wind has picked up around my house too! But March and April are the months we experience high winds.
I could use some rain. The forcast does not have us getting any until possibly middle of next week. Have a good day!
