Tag – You’re it!

Here’s hoping you took a bit of this past weekend to catch up with some of those outdoor chores. Sore muscles and blisters may be an obvious sign for folks who picked up the garden tools and dug into spring clean-up. If you took that plunge, you may have discovered many of your perennials coming to life. Makes sense to unearth a couple of Monday morning archive posts.Why? Because Epimediums are one of our favorite trouble-free perennials but still underused; probably because it’s not over-the-top splashy or often suggested to the novice gardener. 

Our Epimedium collection came from Darrell Probst. His former wife, Karen, now the owner, has moved the gardens to Templeton, MA. As of last spring, she still had the usual ‘once a year’ open garden and nursery sale but the mainstay of this Epimedium business is through mail order.

If you’re wondering what the title means, ‘Tag – You’re it!’ your questions, your feedback, your comments are always welcome. Otherwise, you only get what I celebrate and today, it’s Epimediums.

To wrap up this Monday blog post, this Sydney Smith quote sums up what might keep the best things in life humming slowly but surely. “Do not try to push your way through to the front ranks of your profession; do not run after distinctions and rewards; but do your utmost to find an entry into the world of beauty.” Hope you find the beauty in Epimediums.
