Geoffrey Charlesworth told me this story. A visitor to his garden asked 
Geoffrey what all the rows of labels sans plants were for. Without 
missing a beat he replied that they were tombstones for mice the cats 
had killed.

Judy in New Jersey where May seems to have arrived in place of March. As 
I drive around I see Magnolia soulaniana is in bloom, cherries (Okame I 
think), forsythia. Galanthus came and went before I had my fill of 
admiring them, ditto Leucojum vernum. Frittilaria imperialis is well 
rising, as is its odor. Typical of gardeners everywhere I'm now worrying 
what summer will bring - heat and drought?
