Another slightly frenetic week ahead of me, and I am longing to be back in the garden. This lovely fellow is blooming for me today.
It came from the big-box store in a sack of lily bulbs that I swore were supposed to be a red-violet color. Have these never bloomed before? Still, a pleasant surprise. Yellow goes with this garden’s color scheme, fortunately.
And the Clematis x jackmanii survived their earlier, impromptu move without too much distress.
After a hot, dry week last week, we had rain last night. Rain enough, actually, to tip over my water barrel and knock its tap off. Add another item to the to-do list. Cloudy with intermittent rain, 80 degrees.
