Garden log, 5.22.13


Transplanted the Arisaema triphyllum (Jack-in-the-pulpit) into the rain garden. I hope the improved conditions will encourage it to forgive me for moving it while it’s in bloom; if I didn’t, I would forget. It prefers wet conditions and its former home could only be described as bone dry. Promptly got a nice solid drink of rain. I imagine I have sacrificed this year’s bloom but I can live with that.

Penstemons blooming today. Overcast, muggy, 84 degrees. Almost 4 inches of rain so far this month. Summer is here, but just for a day or two. Weekend looks promising.
