The good news: I took these photos without getting drenched in the rain. The bad news: I took these photos without getting…drenched in the rain. I had such high hopes. To quote our local morning paper: “‘Rainfall Amounts Minimal’: Anticipated storm turns into sprinkle. Sigh.
The paper went on to say, “Broader downpour expected over next few days,” so I’m thinking I should go wash my car after I hang a silk blouse outdoors on the branch of a tree.
Meanwhile, three cheers for drip irrigation!
Here’s what’s blooming this Thursday:
The fairy garden is back outside, resting on the forged iron bench. I wove several fir branches along the back, and in a matter of minutes had a lovely spray of greens. Those little cyclamen prefer the cool air, so all is well.
Guess what? The pansies and bulbs remain firmly planted. I mulched the pots with rough gravel to deter the squirrels. Weeks in, it’s still working. They haven’t unearthed a thing.
Lavender still blooms, grazing the edges of the front deck
This cyclamen came back from last year, joined by two others under the Magnolia tree. The fuchsia centers just send me.
Coral Bells make my heart sing.
I’m heading outdoors to do my best rain dance. I’ll keep you posted.
What’s blooming in your neck of the woods?
