The annual May freeze settled in this week.
Frost warnings last night.
Folks scurried to cover tomatoes
and bring in hanging baskets.
I forgot to mention taking the baskets over to the barn
before I left for a meeting last night.
They weathered it, so to speak.
It will be in the fifties tonight and back into the eighties for the near future.
Global warming is too near, this year.
In other garden news,
the Solomon's seal and the allium look good.
The white allium are about to bloom. I think they're white.
Over in "the swamp", the bleeding heart took good hold, the miniature iris are starting buds and the saw grass is greening up.
Closer to the house, Walt's pinks bloomed first.
The big bed of Nina's pinks has hundreds of waving blossoms, but they are not open yet.
The flower tower that I have been keeping from you is coming along fine.
Less than three weeks old; it's on a tear.
My lovely anemone still bloom, opening every morning, closing every night.
The red and blue flowers along the walk.
But it seems like a good time for a new header picture,
and in the process of taking one,
I seem to have gathered the gardening news for the week.
