This latest stretch of warm weather had me in the garden more than usual the past few days.

Finally got around to dealing with that heather, crushed to death by heavy snows. In its place, an Andromeda prolifolia, whose blue leaves and pink flowers accent the surrounding green. Also, and more expensively, a "Lawrence Crocker" daphne, which, given the rash of plant thefts in the neighbourhood, was something of a risk.

On the other side of the walk, I began a second rockery, this one featuring a jasmine-scented "Snowbird" azalea to go with the "Hershey Red" Scott Watson recovered and gave to us in 2004. After languishing in a pot all these years, it is nice to see the "Hershey" bedded and doing well.
