19:45 Love Letters and Questions:  Tedi wonders about the trails she sees in her garden after a snow melt.

This is a rosemary grown to look like a small tree. When plants are trained and pruned this way, they are called a “standard” or standard form.

We love Achillea! This one is Moonshine yarrow.

Ellen and C.L. love Jessica Walliser’s latest book, Plant Partners.
