Chronicaling the lunacy of taming three acres in Tidewater Virginia, one square foot at a time!

"Gardens... should be like lovely, well-shaped girls: all curves, secret corners, unexpected deviations, seductive surprises and then still more curves. ~H.E. Bates, A Love of Flowers

Check out Les!

Another yucky weather day...damp, cool, breezy. Not really a day that inspires gardening...maybe some bird pictures later.

We got ~2 inches of rain since overnight Sunday. I am sure grateful that was it! I am worried about my northern friends who are getting hammered by hopefully the last noreaster of the season! More flooding is not needed.

In the meantime check out Les, "A Tidewater Gardener" (a God not a Goddess-ha) on the local news channel! Les talks about Camelias at NBG 

If you are in this area...the Norfolk Botanical Garden is totally worth the cost of admission... I just bought myself a membership and signed up for a macro photography class in the hopes of actually learning what my camera can do if it is NOT on "autofocus!"

Also...The Center for Conservation Biology at the College of William & Mary will band the Norfolk Botanical Garden bald eaglets on Wednesday, March 31, 2010 at 9 a.m. You can follow the banding activities on the web cam with a narrative provided by Norfolk Botanical Garden staff. Eagle Cam Link here!
