|Last week in the Garden of Benign Neglect|
Even though winter is not nearly through with us...No tears, no tantrums. I pinky swear!
Besides! Look what was blooming on Tuesday!
|The first bloom of 2011|
Denizen of the Southern and Central US
Favorite of dowsers, water witches, or water wigglers
who used the twigs for divining water wells.
Blooms in the winter
When we need it most.
On warm days,
the crepe paper streamer petals unfurl and
its sweet scent drifts about.
Signally to all that,
Spring can't be far behind!
Keep warm and please be careful out there,
