Up in Mamaroneck, two things stir the gardening impulse. Bright green chive shoots emerge in the vegetable garden to kick the year off. Later in the year they will drive me crazy keeping them in check, but right now they remind me of how dependable a tenant they are here. The other is the Schlumbergera which was in a sorry state last year and got a long overdue repotting. This year it returns the favor with a mass of fuschia blooms.
