What Season is This?
These Up and Down temperatures are challenging at best.
I quickly snapped a shot of my bird bath upon hearing the forecast
of low 30s for Saturday night. With temperatures in the city a few degrees warmer,
I wasn't sure they would make it.
Great news- they are still thriving!
Maybe I had a little help.
I have Stella D'oro lilies in front of the iris.
Some babies are cropping up too.
I had left out the bird bath topper during the storms
last week since they predicted hail.
There was snow to our west and south west.
The chives in the old wash tub came up pretty well again
since we've had so much rain.
The little frogs are back and planning their families.
The dark purple iris are from the bed I had in the old place
about 13 years ago. A neighbor's light purple ones had
made their way under the fence and joined mine
so a few of them made the move too.
These are bee balm blooms getting ready to burst open.
This grows wild everywhere, even under my roses.
The wild columbine is one of the earlier flowers,
And a little rose peeks out, the first bloom.
I seriously trimmed back the viburnum
but it's as thick as ever! It makes a nice
screen between the sitting area and subdivision road.
You can barely see it in the third photo
to the extreme right.
We attended church this morning and then headed
to Applebee's for lunch. I love their club house grill
but they have changed it AGAIN!
I passed on my favorite sandwich and opted for
the crunchy butterfly shrimp which is delicious. The other
half will be dinner tonight so I guess it's like going out twice!!
We stopped to get some tomatillo plants since I didn't get
the seeds started in time but so far we struck out!
They had lots and lots of them a couple of weeks ago
but now, none!!!. I'll keep checking around.
I also have some flowers to plant in pots still and a couple
of peppers left over from the garden planting. We also spent some
time fixing the watering system but I'll post on that later.
So, today (Sunday) I gardened in a sweat shirt and Tuesday it's going to be 90.
Again- What Season is this??????
