I must admit I am envious of the roses in Portland that will be blooming soon. It will be two months before we see roses here. In the meantime, I'll look forward to seeing photos you take of the roses in your city. I'm also eager for updates on your progress in your community garden and other plots. I remember you were interested in guerrilla gardening. How is that going? I have heard of biodynamic gardening but I don't know too much about it. It will be nice to learn more from you as your share your interest here on Sprouts.
Thank you for the virtual tour of Pittock Mansion. How interesting! You asked if I have plants to visit any gardens soon. Most don't open for a while, but I expect I will visit my usual favorites. Three that I have never visited, which I hope to see this summer are Fuller Gardens, Enfield Shaker Museum, and Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site. All are in New Hampshire.
