I was surprised....... by flower on the crinum lily, Crinum procerum 'splendens' in my water garden.
I emptied......... the three outside water tanks, filled the rain barrels in the garden and watered all the plants. It's going to rain this weekend!
I watered.... the flowers growing between the pavers in the potager.
I collected.....seeds from the red spider zinnia.
I potted up.......snapdragons and violas from their 6 packs into 4" pots. They will spend a couple of weeks in the greenhouse until they have made new roots, making them easier to transplant.
I noted.......that the wonderful, fragrant Felicia might need a trellis on which to twine next year.
I jumped over...... the narrow leaf zinnias growing in the pathways between the vegetable beds.
I decided........ that the Philippine violet was at the peak of its bloom.
I resolved ..... to thin the baby pak choi for tomorrow evenings dinner.
I gave.... the Aloe marlothii a new pot.
It is so happy.
I realized....... that it is time to take lots of cuttings to save for next year.
I did a lot of other things too. Like tackling the fire ant problem and weeding and sowing but the fun bit is always just walking around with the camera.
