Another soggy, busy week. We always try to take advantage of any free bits in the mornings and evenings to soak up some sun, but often it’s just not an option to really spend an appreciable amount outdoors until the weekend. Same for you?
Yesterday, during a brief break in the rains mid-afternoon, I surveyed the yard and gardens. Corn plants are still coming up, fig and pear trees already have tiny fruits, and our newly planted gardenias + the transplanted hostas are thriving. The foxglove looks healthy, but a few of its stalks and this monster gladiolus stem were casualties of the overnight storm. Naturally I brought them inside to brighten our room!
