been hoeing, weeding and doing some watering. It’s still been chilly in the wind but has been sunny, cold early morning with at least one frost and has remained dry with no sign of any rain.
The poached egg plants (limnanthes douglasii), which were nice and green a month or so ago, have shown no hint of flowering and the foliage is now beginning to yellow despite being watered. They usually self-seed year-to-year but it could well be that I’ll have to buy seeds for next year if they don’t flower.
I like gladioli but have never really done well with them, either in the ground or in containers. Last year I had some in two large pots which had good leaves but few flowers. I kept the best of the corms which I’ve replanted in one container. I’m not sure which varieties they are but I think they’re a mix of pale lemon and pink (and white?).
Looking out the living room windows at home I see that the purple lilacs are just starting to flower.
Take care, and have a good weekend!
