Will I or wont I today


49 degrees and wind blowing with a chilly nip in the air. Do I want to go out and do some transplanting! Extended forecast for the coming days will be pretty much the same as today with temps in low to mid sixties.

Maybe I will put on warmer clothes and give it a go. Get that potting mix and vermiculite mixing done with the transplanting before it gets beastly hot. The transplants may do better with the cooler temps. Cut down on the shock trauma for the plants.

Like your dedicated garden project JAP69

Here in Nevada the cereus cactus grows in the desert as in all of the southwestern U.S. Most of the time it's scraggly and brittle-looking. But one night of the year, in the coming June or July, it blooms with a fragrant, trumpet-shaped flower. By dawn the creamy white petals close and start to wither. During that brief celebration, the plant's main pollinator, the sphinx moth, has to discover the marvelous event and come to gather the cactus flower's pollen. I suspect this scenario has metaphorical resemblances to a task we could benefit from carrying out in the days ahead. Be alert for a sudden, spectacular, and rare eruption of beauty that you can feed from and propagate and pomegranate LoL
