It was gorgeous outside today, brilliant sunshine, warm temps (just over 60), and work was quiet. So what kept me out of the garden? The wind. Everything I had to do was related to potting soil...the potting soil that I ended up covered in on a calm day. I really hope this stops so I can get some stuff done tomorrow. "How bad could the wind be?" you ask. I used my nifty new tripod (thanks mom!) to shoot some video to show you. It really starts howling around :30 and the camera and tripod nearly blow over just after the 1:00 mark:
Not visible in the video is the clematis which is growing like a weed. In this photo of it you can't quite see that the two climbing nasturtiums I planted on each side of it are finally up! The four I planted in front of the other trellis...not so much:
The azalea is blooming in the Mother's Day garden:
I think we'll end up will some more scilla next spring if the number of seed pods on the ground are any indication:
I guess the next thing I'm looking forward to seeing bloom is the iris. They didn't bloom last year (their first in our garden after my friend Mary passed them along), so I'm trying not to consider the four flower stalks among 20 or so plants a disappointment:
What are you looking forward to seeing in your garden?
