Diana Reek showing me some of her extensive Erythronium collection. I was lucky to catch everything popping into bloom when I visited her place this weekend.
The genetic diversity in her collection is staggering!
Raised beds chock full of hybrids and species make a fantastic show this time of year.
Diana operated Collectors nursery in Washington for many years and has recently retired and relocated to my neck of the woods. It's nice to have a fellow plant person in the neighborhood!
This weekend kicked off Friday with a terrific win storm pummeling the Valley. I had a slight bit of damage to the greenhouse door, but after reading about a few folks in the area whose PVC and plastic greenhouse decided to do something like the three little pigs story. I'm thankful that mine stood fast. Lots of people were without power for quite awhile.
