In the last post the purple heart has some odd thingys in the middle under the bloom. What the heck? They look like spider legs but I’m sure it’s just…. new leaves? Yep, let’s go with new leaves.
Unplanted, unwanted, there nonetheless.
…and burple friend.
Yes, I went out to work in the bed but had to take pictures first. Of course!
I know, I know. It used to be crinum lilies. Always announced the first lily of the year… but of course I’d shoot hundreds of them and soon crinum weariness would set in. Or crinum derangement syndrome. (For me, at least)
Before lilies it was confederate ivy. Quit that when I finally got a good shot of one, but it took years. Sorry. Every bloom delights, thus I must share. Sorry again.
Hope is outdoing herself, even as small as she still is!
I think she needs a name as beautiful as her blooms. What say you?
Yes, this is the type of thing that excites me. I’m easy.
My tiny little Early Bird Crape Myrtles (from Wilson Bros, a top notch place IMO) are budding! They’re still so small themselves, but so healthy and perfect!
And I put the poor root-bound philo in the ground. It’s going to be massive!
That’s it for this morning. Still much to do in this yard but not today… I have to give my body the day off.
Holy moly, the pompoms are seeds!
How cool is this? The canna blooms have pompoms!
