Oh wow, where do I even begin? It’s been a whirlwind of a month and a hazy week and to make things further foggy, I’ve been wrestling with a cold that sprung up and knocked me down. Though for the past day I been feeling better. I may have regained control, but I am cautiously stepping since this one wily cold.
Remember all the labels I’ve been making for the past month? Well, they are being proudly displayed in ‘The Lost Gardener’ at the Northwest Flower & Garden Show. I helped throughout the process of installing the display garden and boy am I tired! We had essentially three days to create a thriving garden out of sawdust and mulch and the transformation is mind blowing. The cherry on top is that we won the Founder’s Cup, aka best in show! I’ll write up a post on the installation days leading up to judging, but that will be in a few days. Now that the flower show is in full swing (actually tomorrow is closing day), please pop by to see the garden!
Another exciting thing this month is that I heard back from a fellowship I applied for in January. I received an email on the 4th telling me I got an interview! The interview is in New York and I will be flying out in a few days. They only select one fellow a year so naturally I am a bit anxious, but super excited! With my lucky penny in hand and my dreams in the other, I am ready to walk through this door.
Anyway, here are a few photos to make up for a such a vague and short post.
The first snowdrops of the season started to bloom a few days ago in my garden. So clean and white! (Thankfully, they escaped the ravaging of slugs.)
The white hellebore from previous posts is really waking up now, which is really fitting since I bought this guy from the Northwest Flower & Garden Show a few years ago.
Here is a sweet primula to finish up the post. See you soon!
