Holy Week is the best week of them all.
Media seems kind of quiet about the Belgian attacks. But I am not listening to radio or watching television, just monitoring the internets.
"Ann Althouse has been blogging since January 14, 2004, and her blog has been called “Althouse” since January 15, 2004."What was it called the first day?
"... For if they do this when the wood is green, what will happen when it is dry?"
Two Sundays ago, rose vestments were permitted in the Roman Church in place of the usual Lenten violet; Laetare, it's called (from the first word of the introit). I'd never heard the term 'Lenten rose'-- 'Christmas roses', yes. Helleborus. It was formerly the custom for the popes to present a golden rose as a gift to Catholic sovereigns &c on Laetare Sunday, and in a process peculiar to history somehow that custom and the rose vestments custom are all entangled together. Yes indeed: a blessed and peaceful Holy Week to all!

They had potted helleborus for $15 at the metro market. A pretty good deal, I bought 3.
The Lenten Roses are one of my favorite perennials in my garden. The blooms last for weeks, and I noticed the honey bees visiting them in my NCentral IL garden yesterday. Your Siberian Squill are probably blooming as well. I remember you posting a picture last year saying that you hadn't planted it. They're such multipliers, and I'm hoping to have a carpet of them under my oak tree.
Meade Are you going to get the snow? You'll need to put a tent over the pretty flowers.
We've had a white helleborus blooming for 2 weeks now. The pink one in the garden looks pretty threadbare, and probably won't produce a blossom. Not sure what's up with it.
"What was it called the first day?"It's easy to find the answer in the archive. (Listed in the sidebar.) But the answer is: Marginalia.
Anyone else notice the terrorist masterminds are not bearded anymore??
Ah, I think that's been mentioned before, but I forgot. It's funny, I never even glance at the sidebar. I also forgot there was a blogroll there. Do people still click on those, I wonder?
@khesanh0802, we're looking for 1-3 inches. No need to cover the Hellebores — they're tough.@MadisonMan, I'm going to guess rabbits. Or raccoons.
@Meade -- we had a horrible slug problem in that part of the garden last year, so that would be my first guess. Rabbits around my house are mostly a back-yard thing. Raccoons are possible. They are always emerging from the sewers near me at night.
