After a weekend with temperatures hitting 60 and a Saturday filled with fabulous gardeners (I met Helen Dillon!), I am inspired!
Sunday found me outside pruning the fig tree, finally painting the back fence, and putting into effect phase one of Operation Dog Storm. Everyday, 2-3 times a day I walk with Luna around the garden and spray her with bitter apple if she steps foot in the garden. I put up some really ugly fencing (temporary!) to show her the border (since I will admit, with the lack of turf and winter garden, it's hard to tell).
I'm doing some research on dwarf conifers (Richard Bitner spoke on Saturday and was just amazing) and am interested in getting some asian pears to espalier (Hosui?). I know that I'll be dealt a seasonal smack-down in a few days when temperatures drop, but for now I'm just thrilled that Spring is on it's way!
