First of all, finally back at home. Five days short of six months on the boat, 2,913 miles. Had a terrific time.
My garden looks pretty good considering it's been neglected. Lots of weeds, but with a mild winter, everything looks pretty good. A lacecap which was underwater for a while with Irene had hardly any leaves when we arrived, but now is getting new ones.
I took the behind the scenes garden tour, led by the curator, at Tryon Palace this week. Took my camera but failed to bring a notepad. There was so much I wanted to note! This lily is growing outside the fence at the charming garden behind the waystation, which used to be the ticket office. She said it was heirloom, but that's all I recall. Also the greenhouse manager mentioned a green spray for caterpillars. Any thoughts? I may have to call him to get the info.
It's nice to be back! Barbie, had planned to contact you as we got close to Carolina Beach, but we shot right by, made Wrightsville just at dark, and were off early the next morning.
Sorry I missed the roundup. Sounds like it was terrific!
