Hooray! Hooray, Gladiola is in her PJ's and she is jumping for joy! She has two reasons to be excited. The first is that she has some great seed catalogues to read. The second is that it is one more sleep until she meets her first class from Northumberland Hills Public School at Cramahe Library in Castleton.

Gladi and her human, Sharon Ramsay Curtis, have been waiting a long time to share their book about gardening with a group of children. They both are very happy!

Those of you who follow us on the Artful Garden Gallery Website will be interested to hear that the Saga of the Reluctant Wisteria continues.

After the apparent winter kill of our 20 year old Non Blooming Wisteria. last spring we planted a new plant just beside the old one. We made sure that the new plant had bloom on it when we took it home but nothing much changed over the summer.

Yesterday when trying to decide where to begin a bit of garden tidy up, and gazing idly about, I was astonished and amazed to see two interesting shapes appearing among the Wisteria leaves. With the help of Dr. Google  we were able to come to the conclusion  that it is very likely that we wil have bloom this year.
