It poured like crazy all day long today… a good excuse to do no gardening. I am all talk. I sat inside wondering how my new planters were faring in the downpour. Would the deluge help or hinder the clear-cut Dusty Miller? I’ll investigate tomorrow. Or whenever the rain stops. And I remember.
In other news, the tall and wild and beautiful burnt orange lilies that love every abandoned lot (and garden) in town are here! (Along with their friends, the diminutive duck-billed butter-yellow blooms.)
The lilies look like orange flamingos… bird-stepping carefully over spiky stem islands.
