Just a quick share this time… Magnolia macrophylla has begun to open it’s buds for the year. It has limped along for a few years in various pots. All of them, of course, too small. Anyway, I didn’t want to put this plant in the ground because I had only ever seen it for sale once, and I knew I wouldn’t stay put forever. This year I have seen it for sale at several nurseries. I guess everyone was waiting for me to find a more permanent place to plant it!
I love a challenge. Whether it is germinating seeds from exciting new plants (at least exciting and new for me), keeping and raising fish, poison dart frogs, and ornamental shrimp, or navigating new areas of the world without maps or guides, I am interested in it. I have lived in the Pacific Northwest most of my life, and I'm still fond of moss and gray skies.
