A great reminder that this is the time to get plants in the ground for pleasure, and even health. We made our annual pilgrimage to Terrain outside of Philly, and got a whole bunch of flowers and beautiful plants in the ground this weekend (https://www.shopterrain.com/) Unfortunately my wife hurt her back from all the stooping over and lifting of pots, so careful with that!

Also a huge Benjamin Rush fan. There is a medicinal herb garden on the ground of Pennsylvania Hospital (where he used to practice, and started the first psychiatric hospital) that I love to walk through and contemplate. If I had limitless time I would devote a whole Substack to exploring Rush...

Cheers to green thumbs :)
