For weeks I've looked at the paper narcissus, asking, "Where are the buds?" And here they are. This time next week, a stand of the little white beauties. The woolly thyme is quite taking over as ground cover; there are only a few stubborn weeds to deal with.
The rain keeps on sprinkling, day after day. The plants are so happy. Here is a sedum, an August lily hosta w.a.y in the back, Aunt Laura's iris and everywhere, air blooming crocus (colchium).
Here is Aunt Laura's iris, close up. They are ordinary little wild iris, but Aunt Laura gave me seeds, years and years ago.
Pink coral bells and my little stand of miniature daffodils.
Look at the puddle! Any step into the dirt yields rising water.
The chives are happy in their pot. They will be moving, soon.
And speaking of moving, here is a bag of marble chips I emptied when we moved here, three years ago. I wanted whatever I had in a pot there to have a nice background. I think I'll put on a pair of gloves and pick up a good many of them for the new rock garden.
