|Regal lily close up|
I thought I'd show you a few of my hits and misses so far this season. It's been a tough spring - above normal temperatures at times (10 degrees above this week), cooler temps that held some plants back, way below average rainfall, etc., etc. But despite all that, I have some fun things to show. Like my first lily ever, the Regal lily.
|'Crimson Pirate' daylily|
|'Whirling Butterflies' gaura and LOTS of aphids!|
|a sickly iris|
|Nero Toscana kale still growing|
|'Mucho Nacho' jalapeno|
|'Gypsy' sweet bell pepper|
|Sweet pea climbing rue, Ruta graveolens|
|'Coral Nymph' salvia|
|'Helvola' water lily buds|
|A few succulents and some fig ivy that needs trimming!|
Be glad I didn't show you the rest of my "misses" - some almost non-existent cucumber plants, the lack of moon vines despite several seedings, the 'Ava' agastache which insists on growing tall and then slowly expiring ... But we all have our misses, don't we?
