Blooming this week
Just so you can see that it has finally stopped raining here (and is rapidly approaching the 90 degree mark), I thought I would share with you some of what's going on in the garden. Look for Toady in the lettuce, he's almost completely hidden! I harvested a ton of lettuce this morning to take to VA for my mom and family. Can't beat totally fresh lettuce. I'm a little bummed because I know that some of my bulbs, etc. are going to be blooming over the next week and I may miss them, but hopefully there will be something left to photograph at the end.
I'm amazed that the irises bloomed at all because I was a naughty girl and failed to move them in august when I was supposed to and split them rather clumsily this spring. I had so many that I had to divide them up into at least 10 clumps....that's what years of neglect will get you!
The white begonia (which I must say is totally spectacular) I started indoors over the late winter early spring and I thought that perhaps I wasn't going to have any luck with them. And then voila! The blooms started appearing last week, but didn't open up until this week. Very cool.
