I’ve been away for a few days. And very nice it was too. However, it is hard to leave your garden in the midst of the growing season, drought or no drought. Actually I’m not sure anyone has officially said the “D” word yet, but it won’t be long, mark my words. The day before we left I watered everything well and shuffled pots into shadier places. Then I crossed my fingers. And it worked. On my return all was well. On the cusp, perhaps, but fine. Today I have repeated Thursday’s irrigation. No one blinked.
This daylily, one of the magnificent Pollies Daylilies seedlings, was revving up to flower before we left. Kindly, it waited until today to bloom, and very pleased I am too.
