Major whinge alert: We enjoyed a cool, wet August and a mild summer overall. So, of course, the sun is now blasting our first week of fall with ghastly heat: will be 90+ Fahrenheit today and tomorrow and isn't forecast to calm down til week's end. 😫😑😦 Consequently, I'm whizzing this up again today. As you can see, it was slow going to get my brain in gear. And please ignore the dirty fingernail. I watered and did some weeding before the sun got above the trees.
Couldn't resist a second shot.
Happy autumnal equinox!
It was a long drive home but arrived in time to see the sun painting with watercolors in the sky over the neighborhood.
I never think of seashells when I see this cultivar so it takes me a while to remember it's name. Its early stages are very cute. And I should pull up that bronze fennel... it's getting a bit thick around here.
Better late than never. A nice crowd opened this morning. Grow these every year and they've never been this late.
