I need to get to an appointment this afternoon.
Later: I went outside briefly in the early morning. It was not terribly hot yet temperature-wise, but it was extremely humid, like a sauna. The sambac jasmine 'Maid of Orleans' has a bunch of new buds. The 'Ellen Bosanquet' crinum has a bud. The poet's jasmine (Jasminium grandiflorum) has a few flowers still open, and quite a number of buds. One of the 'Uchida' lilies is blooming. I'd cut off one bud that was nibbled on a month or two ago so the energy could go to other parts of the plant. One flower below that stem was fully open, and there was also a well-developed bud lower on that stalk that I expect will open soon.
'Mme. Isaac Pereire' had a bud that I cut to prevent its being eaten by Japanese beetles. That has a very good fragrance. I had seen that the "Two-Tone" rose had a bud. Today I saw that the sepals were down on that flower. The two tones are coming out as yellow petals edged with pink. That's a relatively common Tea rose color blend that has been passed down to a number of Hybrid Teas. Maybe it's 'Peace.' Maybe I got the yellow rose with no name instead of the "Two-Tone" one.
Early evening: I made it to a live appointment, and then made a grocery store run, and then had a virtual appointment. I was exhausted after all that, and lay down for a while. We're having thunderstorms again tonight.
