Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
I’ve REALLY missed blogging. 😮 Though my back is TONS improved, I’m still having trouble holding the camera steady: please overlook the less-than-crisp quality of today’s photos?
Let’s begin ❗
While I’ve been resting and recuperating, T.utriculata has been full of energy! Check out this picture, taken yesterday at 535pm:
The flowerspike now measures exactly 9″! By next week, it should break through the leaves and begin stretching toward the sun. 🙂
Last season, moles destroyed every dwarf larkspur growing in the rear cutting garden. After safely removing the rodents In January , I sowed new larkspur seeds near a wire basket plant support… Here’s to hoping this plant stays around!
In the Ranchero garden, a patch of Centaurea has reseeded from last year’s single plant. Most are still in the foliage stage, but one is waking up nicely amid the nasturtium:
March heralds the beginning of Florida’s amaryllis season, with the first bloomspike arriving right on schedule! 🙂
Nothing says Spring like a lily patch! This week, Hemorcallis Hyperion really kicked it into high gear!
This canary-yellow, re-blooming hybrid has been around since 1925. Unlike many modern daylilies, these flowers emit a light, sweet fragrance at dawn and dusk.
Thank you SO much to everyone who sent thoughts and good wishes my way….This week, I’ll be back on track with replies/comments/posts!
Enjoy the rest of St. Paddy’s!
