February 21, 2010
Had a very productive day in the garden. The first order of business was to get the Wisteria pruned, Wisteria sinensis "Cook's Special". It really is fun to get that all pruned and in shape for the start of bloom season.
This particular specimen blooms about three times between the heavy bloom in the spring and then two more light blooms in the early summer and mid summer.
First bloom of Spring 2009
Did a major water change on the fish pond, it will take several days to top it off. I planted some onion seed the Ed Hume variety of white bunching green onions. Then I cleaned up the rose bed and discovered that I already have the rose we just ordered so am changing the order to Mr. Lincoln which is a nice red. Have a couple of new orchids blooming in the greenhouse, the first one is a Paphiopidelum and the other is an Odontiglossum that someone gave me so I don't have the variety name but it is a very nice deep yellow with burgundy spots.
