Spent Cherry Blossoms & Daffodils

Sunday morning we ran the Cherry Blossom Race in Washington, D.C. most of the puffy pink blooms were spent, it has been an early spring. 

Monday morning was spent tying daffodil stems in knots. It's something Susan showed me today at the Jefferson Market Garden , it's our neighborhood garden here in Greenwich Village. Tying or braiding the dying daffodils keep the plants tidy and help return the nutrients back to the bulbs. 

Loving these longer days. 

My mother Suzanne and her Garden Club think daffodils are simply the best and really who can disagree? Down in Virginia they take these sweet flowers pretty seriously with annual shows , over 78 years celebrating an early spring bulb that is found virtually anywhere and bought for just a few bucks. Bright yellow and orange white tight closed buds open and suprise.  

But what has hooked me more than all the daffodils and cherry trees combined are for the Dogwoods, those ones continue to bloom nice and strong. 

Landscape drafting tonight..
