The front border garden camellia is giving spectacular blooms to begin the new year and decade.
I remember the turn of the century in 2000, with the fear of computer crashes and watching the new year dawn in Fiji and travel across the globe. I remember the turn of the decade in 2010, when estate planners wondered about the repeal of the federal estate tax for one year.
I drove up late yesterday afternoon. For the first time in a long while I took the road by the Camanche Reservoir. A sunny afternoon showed off the greening of Jackson Valley.
In the last few hours of daylight I finished pruning the third rose, and offloaded and applied six cubic feet of organic raised bed soil. Many months ago Mike created a mulch pile with his chipper. I have fed it with coffee grounds regularly and spread it to allow rain to dampen it. The time has come to use it, and I applied two generous wheel barrows full to cover the new soil. I will feed the roses when the first growth appears, most likely in February.

And the turn from 1989 to 1990, when you were looking to buy a two-family house with couple . . .
Love the camellias…
