I got it for cheap. I can't remember when. It's blooming, finally. It starts out yellow, which I missed. There are currently 3 open blooms.
In the perennial bed, nigella is looking fantastic.
It's 59 degrees. The heat was on last night. The forecast calls for slight chances of rain all day, the highest being 30% around 3pm. We had a sprinkling of rain last night. Weather.com says we received 0.01" at the municipal airport just outside of town.
As I sit at my desk, I can see a male cardinal feeding a fluffy baby at the edge of the potager. He takes seeds from the bird feeder and flies back to where she sits. He's been doing this for 15 minutes now. There are baby bluebirds in one of the boxes out back. The same box that was used last year. I need to refill the birdbaths before work.
2:56pm - Home for lunch. It rained for about an hour this morning around 11am. More rain likely this evening and part of Wednesday morning. The rose above now has a nearly open bloom. It's yellow.
And a new bud has started showing color. Things happen quickly with just a little rain and cool temperatures.
It's 61 degrees.
