April 30; April showers bring May flowers
Sunday, 29 Apr 12 Storms 30°C / 86°F
The Columbine bloomed! This is good, because the buds look like some kind of creature from the movie Alien, and I was worried. But now I am reassured and even delighted. The false indigo is lovely, too. (Photos 1 & 2, and 5)
The first iris blooms are dying off. had problems getting a good photograph, mostly because they’re white and I haven’t gotten to them at a good time of day. Played with the auto-correct on Photoshop, and voila! Lovely! (Photos 3 & 4).
One of the peonies is ALMOST open. If I stuff my nose right up to it, I can smell that delirious perfume.
And my roses arrived. We’re due for a week of storms, but maybe the skies will give me a break for long enough to plant them. Holes are already dug—I would’ve liked to dig them a little deeper, though. For now, the roses get to look out the window and listen to the thunder, just like me.
