flowers and gardening

     Cardinal flower starting to bloom.  I really like that saturated red of the flowers.  Sweet alyssum starting to bloom.  It should keep going until the first hard frost, if last year is any indication.  Trimmed back apple mint.  Oriental lily in big white pot in front of house is almost ready to open.  Tiger lilies in bud.  At least, the ones the deer haven't eaten are in bud.

     Bee balm in full bloom, covering half the herb garden.  Elecampane in bud.  Mystery pink rose has a couple of full blooms and several buds, although its being eaten by Japanese beetles.  'Souvenir de la Malmaison' in bud.

    I've stayed up too late again. This time I was writing reviews of the graphic novels I've been reading, or rereading, in the case of Hawkeye…

  • Thursday

    I'll see if the L.s are coming over today to take a look at the garden plants.

  • Wednesday

    I stayed up late, and then got up early. Mom and I went out and about early, then out again to the library and to the mall.
