vines have perished. I think I will put new seeds in.
The lilies are blooming slowly this year instead of one big flush of
flowers. The Stargazers still have a ways to go.
Garlic is getting there. It's almost July so almost time to harvest!
Starting new Nasturium and Columbine seeds since neither of which came
up this year. Guess my Nasturtium seeds were too old. My Columbine
just plain didn't come up. Winter must've done it in.
All my mushroom compost washed away in the stormin the front yard.
Gutter needs fixed and Justin wants to put up a divterter too, which
is probably a good idea.
Paph. moquettium is about to bloom! The bud is opening up! Can't wait!
Seed grown herbs are tiny still except for basil. That is catching up
to my store bought plant! Chives is weak as well as parsley & cilantro.
Marigold from seed is doing well. Started 6 and 5 made it. They are
about 3" tall and very pretty, but a ways from blooming!
One of my Amorphallus leafed out after being dormant for two years!
I'm excited! Lots of things growing. Just wished the summer heat would

A branch fell on my lily/garlic patch in the backyard and broke a lily bud off as well as some petals off a flower. Had to stake 4 of them cuz they were all bent over. A miniature iris of mine in the backyard got washed out! Good thing I looked because it would've died! Looks like a lot of work this weekend besides studying for my test on Monday!

Today I also found 3 baby Black Krim tomatoes growing! YIPEE!!!
Basil is doing well. Something is eating it. Oregano did not come back surprisingly. It did last year from the year before...guess our winter this year was worse?

Anyhoo....today I went to Lowes to get sticky traps. Found a white peony and a red hydrangea! I had planted a red hydrangea from Park Seed's once, but as with all of the other plants I bought from them, none of them survived. Seeds are ok to buy there, but not plants! I also got two of these little fern like ground covers. Forget what they are called, but I had wanted two blacks, but got a black and a normal green one. Oh well! They supposedly grow in part shade/full sun and do well in drought! So it's perfect....I can do the part shade since it is really dry underneath. I will probably have to water them a bit till they get settled in though. Speaking of which, I forgot to do! Watered some other plants that needed water though. Oops? Oh well....later!
I think I'll plant the red hydrangea up front. I'd like to plant the peony in the back, but not sure I have the space.
