Well, it was a sweet, pale sunrise, - nothing spectacular or flashy - just an endearing and demure beginning to what the weatherman promised would be a pleasant day.
We lingered over breakfast, waiting for Cam and Cindy Anne to arrive with their garden gloves and shovels, - a lovely gesture from our oldest granddaughter and her husband.
And when they came what miracles they performed. One forgets how energetic the forties are, - how easy it is to dig and and how speedy it is divide the plants and conquer the coutch grass and the underground Chinese Lantern Subway when the roots of its line show up....
Cindy Anne digs up the Barn Flower
Divides it, and puts it into plastic bags - some to take home,
some to entice other people to plant it in their gardens....
and some Cam and Charles transplanted to other parts of the garden.
After lunch we divided and bagged up some more perennials
to give the garden plants room to expand.
And then we went and gathered up
the two table looms
for C.A. and one of her students,
both of them eager to weave
so happy to send them where they will be used
and cherished and bring two more weavers
into the fold!!
And the dear girl relieved me of some of the wool stash too!!!
Altogether a most satisfactory day.
I took some pictures of the daffodils and violets and the emerging blooms
on the forsythia
The rest of the eager and vibrant plants
I will put here
In the Garden Diary.
