In Spite of the Weather

We could all use a little sunshine.  Wall Street Journal had an article on Saturday (5/28) discussing weather and temperatures and their effects on the psyche of our corporeal forms.  We were discussing how it lifted our spirits when the snow would break for a few minutes and the sun would shine.  We are amazed and appreciative of all you hardy souls who braved the funk to visit us at the Villager this weekend.  

We did call off a truck or two with our plants but we had 7 deliveries last week including our specialty tomatoes (Tumbler and Sun Raisin 'Tomasio' included), a 48' tractor trailer full of robust quaking aspen and fragrant lilacs in bloom.  We have much more arriving next week as well and we hope the weather improves (if only for our sanity).

Here are a few recent arrivals of fragrant Syringa (Lilac) cultivated varieties (cultivars) fresh from the fields, in order:  'Mrs. Klager', 'Sensation', 'Albert Holden', Sky Blue, 'Adelaide Dunbar' and Common Lilac in Downtown Truckee 25 May, 2009. (note the beautiful Sargent Crabapple in the background).
