Anyway, spring has finally arrived and I've gotten my garden mojo back and am working diligently to fill in the holes in the gardens from the casualties that succumbed to the extreme winter. The best news is that I wintered over my tropical and temperennial collection in a greenhouse so I have lots of very happy campers including and especially my fuchsias. I normally keep them dormant in the basement over the winter and this past season I gave them a short period of dormancy then brought them all to the greenhouse. They are huge and smothered with blossoms at the moment and I hope they don't burn themselves out!
