Ready for my close-up.


Salvia subrotunda

Saffron crocuses

Salvia elegans (pineapple sage)

The last brug to bloom, looks like an Ecuador White. *sigh*

Butterfly weed

Melampodium - Jim's alstromeria is flopping for a cameo.

Black and Blue salvia

Miss Huff

May Night Salvia

Yellow/orange brug

Blue bedder salvia


It's 58 degrees up from a low of 36. Partly sunny, the high today should reach the mid 70s. The heat is off. Rain in the forecast for Friday and Saturday. Scattered seeds in the meadow yesterday - Flanders poppies, peony poppies, California poppies, agastache, blanket flower, Mexican hats, mealy blue sage, and others.

12:48pm - 3 agastache moved from beneath the Thundercloud plum to the slope between the raised beds. Three white gerber daisies moved from the former white bed to the rear bed with others. 24 coreopsis "Full Moon" potted from the division of two clumps. Others will be done as soon as I can locate the quart sized pots in one of my 55 gallon bags. Need more soil too. Time for work.

My favorite picture is of the crocus. I love your other pictures also, but those little crocus popping up out of the dirt just do something to me.

It's wonderful seeing what is still growing there in your lovely gardens. I look forward to seeing what you have in next year's garden.
