My theme today is shades of pink.
Miss Kim lilac.
There are others. Some were blurry. Some were yellow and white. Dutch irises are starting to bud. Dame's Rocket is blooming, but hard to capture. Amur honeysuckle is not as fragrant as I recall.
It's 39 degrees. Yesterday was cool and windy. Today should reach 80. I've got my list of things to accomplish.
- clean the cloner. take cuttings
- toss the wintersown containers with no sprouts
- plant the hostas along the front walk
- plant beans, squash, and cucumbers
- separate and repot tomatoes
Every blasted year. - The city sends some guy on a tractor with whirling blades to "clean up" the growth along the street next to my property. He just finished his awesome work. Good job, dude.
He made a second pass to make sure he took out this huge mock orange shrub that was starting to bud.
And the sweetshrub that was loaded with blooms.
Thank heavens he left all the privet and honeyscuckle. I'm gonna sow cosmos seeds this afternoon. See how they like that.
9:00 am - The cloner has been cleaned and the beans are soaking.
