Here in Killingworth, today is ideal for transplanting. The plants are dormant, the weather is mild and humid, and the sandy soil here at Stonewell Farm is workable.
Last week I transplanted this wonderfully fragrant Meyer Lilac to this open sunny site
as its previous site by the wall was becoming increasingly shady.
This last summer, I also noticed less of these beautiful, fragrant flowers on our Mme. Hardy rose
which is planted to the west of two shrubs, a spirea and a hydrangea, neither of which are getting any smaller.
In the last two years, our clump of three tree peonies have gone from this
to this, due to our ever expanding magnolia shown encroaching from the right.
Live as if you'll die tomorrow. Garden as if you'll live forever.
