June 2007 Bloom Day
It is definitely that time of year...fun to work in the yard, great hopes for a successful garden, the earwigs are slowing down, lots of little projects to fine tune. As well as no time to blog...and really not even time to read blogs. I have a lot of catching up to do. But the down side of summer had arrived, as well, this week. Our first run of over 100 degree days without our more common night time cooling off. Wow...I really AM a weather wimp. Spoiled, spoiled, spoiled. Having lived part of my life in Ohio I am not unaware of the possibilities weather can offer. But we really are blessed with what we have and I have to say I am in awe of what some gardeners endure without giving up. Future 100 degree days will allow me time to post about my new little sideyard drought tolerant garden and a few other recent projects but for now...here is a quick list of what's blooming in Davis today...
Daylilies...Big Gold (I wonder if I will ever remember to dig it out and pass it along to someone who WANTS a big gold daylily) and three others that don't fit the descriptions of what they should be. I think I have bad daylily karma.
purple potato vine
Pink Parasol abutilon
several salvias (May Night, Blue Hill, Sclarea, berrelieri, muelleri)
hollyhocks (note included bee)
white potato vine
nepeta Walker's Low
In bud...cypella coelestis from Annies Annuals which I am anxious to see!
And now (8:30 PM) it is down to 82 degrees with our beloved delta breeze doing its magic...tomorrow will be a good day for the garden tour at the Sacramento Cemetery!
