What is blooming right now . . .

More crinums are blooming.

The corner is starting to coming along, if the squirrels would just leave it alone. See the big red blob at the bottom? Here is a close up:
It is a blood lily I bought last year. Pretty much gave it up for dead. Dead, dead, dead-ity, dead. But then I looked in the pile where I throw plants right before they hit the compost pile, and I saw a very healthy bud. Planted it, and now check out the bloom! My husband thinks it is the coolest thing I've planted by far.

Trying to read what looks like a very interesting blog, but I just gave up. The writing scrolled over the very pretty background, making it impossible to read. Another had a text color that blended very nicely with the background color. Newbies: If you want us to read your blog, make sure we can read your blog.

The Good Thing About 3 Days of Rain

After three solid days of rain, the sun finally came out today. I had been noticing some crinum bulbs blooming about town, especially around the older neighborhood my daughter's school is in. They are growing in huge clumps, even in gutters. I keep thinking, "If these guys knew how much these plants are going for on Ebay, there wouldn't a single one here!" Well, I went out and checked my plants this morning and look what I found:A bloom! When they are blooming, I want a thousand. The rest of the year I'm wondering why I planted so many crinums.

The salvia has perked up too! Maybe I'll keep at this gardening thing. . .

Lizard Porn!!!!!

You know you love it.


We've had sustained drizzling rain for 24 hours now. Thank god! My garden is already starting to perk back up. Now if the squirrels will just preoccupy themselves with someone else's garden for a while, I might perk back up as well.

Give up.

Squirrels won.

Don't care anymore.

Taking up knitting.
