Saturday was a good day. Peonies at Trader Joe’s, pulling creeping Charlie and bindweed at the community garden – and the cool spring sunshine came out instead of the rain we were due. This morning I cut parking lot grape vines and lilies of the valley from around the garbage shed and bleeding hearts from along the driveway. So you see – these flowers are all found except the peonies.
I might have said already – but cosmos and zinnias and bachelor buttons and strawflowers all have sprouted and have their first true leaves. Mind – blown. How do seeds do that? On the other hand, the thyme and oregano plants on my fire escape are practically dead. They don’t like something – the geraniums and petunias? or maybe it is too shady and cold? Or possibly they don’t like my neighbor smoking under my window? No, wait – that’s me who doesn’t like that.
