Sunrise over Gotelli

Okay, so it is Friday the thirteenth. It's also the first day this winter that we've gained a minute of daylenth at the end of the day. The sun has set here in DC at 4:46pm for the last two weeks or so. Today it won't officially set until 4:47. That's a good thing. Of course we're still hemmorhaging minutes in the morning. The solstice, of course, won't be her for another week and a half and I'm not sure but as I remember we may lost a minute or two after that in the morninjg. At any rate we're close to turning  the corner and starting the long slow climb to spring. I'm looking at this sunrise as an encouraging sign from the Universe.

This is a marvelous blog. I hope you will continue to give insight to the plantings at the Arboretum. I was in China Valley last weekend and saw the flowering Adonis nearby.
