It's spring ― time for flowers to blossom, fields to turn green and people to feel lazy all day. The days get longer, the sun is shining, parks, botanical gardens, nurseries and most of all, our own gardens are beckoning to us. But amongst the excitement we also feel strangely tired and weary. All we want to do is sleep, sleep, sleep! The fresh air revives me, but as soon as I get inside the spring tiredness sets in. Or is it just me? Contrary to what it may seem, I didn't do much of the 'sleep, sleep, sleep' thing, but more of a 'dig, dig, dig' thing. I did finally go to the Botanical garden on Monday and had a binge on their surplus seedlings sale. They have quite a few varieties that are hard to find in the local nurseries and some I have never even heard of before. Good job I brought my Martian mule (lol) with me. Here are some of the plants:
Degenia velebitica (Croatian endemic species)
Linum Perenne (Blue Flax)
Epimedium (Barrenwort) (Bishop's hat)
Aster novi-belgii 'Mount Everest'
