92 degrees was the high today. Rain in the forecast again this weekend. Things are popping.
I can't remember who sent that Crinum bulb. I do remember a note saying it "might" survive in a protected site. So I put it against the corner of a south facing chimney. The sago palm that survived the winter is on the other corner. It's been three (maybe two) years since I planted it here.
For a whole buck, I picked up a very distressed Texas Everbearing Fig. I'm hoping some cow manure compost and a little tender care will bring it back to life.
The night I wait all winter for has arrived.
I'll be sitting outside half the evening watching it open.
