I’m eight-tenths of a master gardener now. Which means I’m just slightly more dangerous in the garden than I was before. Last night’s class was all about propagation and we got to do some hands-on grafting activities, which was fun. There was also a presentation on dividing bulbs and other plants, and some hand-out bulbs! I was keen to take home some of these Naked Lady bulbs. (They’re also known as Surprise Lily or Magic Lily.) They bloom in the summer, from long stems that shoot up literally overnight, but they leaf out in the winter, which is a bit odd. They should be placed in the garden landscape along with something else that provides some greenery at blooming time. I’ve never had any of these before, and they will make an interesting addition to the daffodils, irises, and lilies I’ve discovered everywhere. I’ve found the gardens around the house and studio to be full of wonders, and this is my first addition.
