Another surprise

17 Jul 2013
Partly Cloudy 26°C / 79°F

I have been watching in East 2 a long stalk emerging from a fan of leaves with a cluster of buds that are green stained dark maroon. Could it be one of the dark Daylilies that I planted several years ago which came to nothing? It wouldn’t be the first Daylily I have waited for several years to see it bloom.

Already halfway through July and we have not had a measurable amount of rain. With hot, frequently windy weather I have been watering with the hand hose approximately every other day. The Columbia River is high with snowmelt and the patches of snow in the alpine are disappearing. I look up and think it is Spring up there, all tiny temporary streams of snow melt and Glacier Lilies, shrubs still with tiny furled leaf buds.

We did get a little sprinkle of rain, barely enough to register – the rest of the week is forecast to be hot and sunny.
